Lenny Henry Live at Lunchtime
We just saw Lenny Henry live at Norden Farm. Jenny discovered the short lunchtime show an hour before it started so we just showed up and managed to get tickets (£1.50!). The theatre was pretty well full. He needed a test audience to rehearse new material for his Christmas appearance on the very popular Parkinson Show. Great material. Had us laughing most of the show and there was some great audience interaction. Don't know what he's going to cut out to get it down to just five minutes. Interestingly, his notes were written as mind maps on large pieces of cardboard.
