Storyline

It is very rare for a British comedian to be given a concert film all to themself but in 1989 Lenny Henry was given that honour. We start off with him been driven to the concert by Robbie Coltrane as the sort of taxi driver you don't want to get a lift from. Once inside he meets three of his comic heroes - Steve Martin, Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy (all played by Lenny) and then it's on with the stage show. He mixes stand up with appearances from some of his best known characters and there are a few amusing songs along the way. Written by <timbishopgb@excite.com>

Lenny Henry - one of the UK's best comedians at his finest !
10 March 2005 | by firehouse44See all my reviews

UK comedian Lenny Henry cuts loose in hilarious fashion with this live show that is first rate comedy. The show commences with Lenny traveling to the theater and receiving advice on his comedy routine from rambunctious and "know it all" taxi driver, Robbie Coltrane. Once inside the theater, he meets up with comedians Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor ( all cleverly depicted by Henry ), who all pass on their tips and suggestions on how to succeed in comedy.

( Best line by Henry posing as Murphy : "Don't forget the dick Man, the dick's important !" ) The show runs for approximately two hours in front of a live audience with Henry showcasing most of his weird and wonderful alter ego's including Fred Dread, Theophilus P Wildebeeste and Delbert Wilkins. This really is a fantastic show, and Henry's observational humor is very, very funny. If you like fast paced, intelligent comedy.....buy this tape !
