We had a well-earned night out last Friday to see a comedian who’s been entertaining us since 1975.

Such longevity and a high profile, but when we mentioned who we were going to see, we were met with scepticism.

Well if he’s not that funny, how has he survived so long? It turns out Lenny Henry is still funny. Not up there with the Lee Evanses of this world, but as he told his life story through music, there were some great moments.

For example, did you know he could have been a pop star, only for Trevor Horn to turn him down and choose Seal! Surely The Buggles man was Crazy for doing so.

See what I did there? I don’t get out much!
