The Lenny Henry Show (1995)

The Lenny Henry Show

The Lenny Henry Show was a comedy sketch show featuring Lenny Henry. In its first incarnation it ran for two seasons on BBC 1, in 1984 and 1985. Each season had six episodes. A 40-minute special was aired in December 1987. The show was later revived twice, in 1995 and 2003-2005.

Recurring guests include Nicholas Lyndhurst (3 episodes) and Robbie Coltrane (2 episodes).

Two spin-off series followed in a sitcom format, starring Henry as Delbert Wilkins, a well-meaning but trouble-prone pirate radio DJ. At the end, Wilkins went "legit", gaining a job with the BBC World Service, and a son.

The Second Incarnation

The show was revived for one series in 1995; it failed to pick up audiences and was axed not long after.

The Third Incarnation

Lenny Henry revived the format once again in 2003, with stand-up and recurring sketches and recurring star Gina Yashere.

Hugh Laurie appeared in the role of a Professor with a space probe called the Beagle in 2004.
