Lenny takes the audience on an amusing journey through his life in music, describing what it was like being born into a Jamaican household with so many pictures of Elvis Presley on the wall, Lenny says: “I thought he was a relative.”
Through his teenage years Lenny would hang out at the Queen Mary Disco in the Midlands where northern soul dancers high-kicked with such ferocity. “In one tune, they could maim the entire room,” he remembers.
The stand-up also looks at hip hop’s relentless obsession with women’s bodies he adds: “If that girl in the 50 Cent video wants to be recognised, she’s got to walk in the party, bum first.”
Lenny Henry: Pop Life highlights how music goes better with everything, and he also plays the piano during his performance.
Lenny Henry will be performing his new show at The Spa Bridlington on Tuesday, 27 November at 7.30pm.
