Event Has Passed

Last Show: Tuesday 10 th July 2018

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

BAFTA and Emmy Award winning composer, John Altman, hosts a series of intimate conversations with friends and colleagues from his many years experience - over 50 movies, 4,000 commercials and 19 Platinum Records. Guests in the series have already included Michael Palin, Goldie, Rob Brydon and Sanjeev Bashkar. 

John’s special guest tonight is one of Britain’s best known and loved personalities, Lenny Henry, a man who has had a crucial influence on the creation of black-centred comedy and characters. His character creations range from Brixton’s favourite wideboy Delbert Wilkins to the one-man ‘sex machine’ Theophilus P. Wildebeeste and the Guinness supping Grandpa Deakus. Lenny's long and varied career have taken him from his early cult appearances in the 1970s on TISWAS with Chris Tarrant, three seasons of Three of a Kind with Tracey Ullman and David Copperfield, his own hugely successful Lenny Henry show, through to film appearances, acclaimed roles in Shakespeare productions and sell out stand up tours.
