Lenny Henry

Lenny Henry is a stranger to the concept of volume control - in his clothes as much as in his voice. It is no coincidence that two of his previous live shows have gone by the unambiguous titles of Loud! and Larger than Life, and that his current tour (his largest yet) is entitled Large!. On stage, he displays all the excess energy of Don Juan on Viagra. Audiences tend to get swept along by his boundless enthusiasm.
