Who Am I Again?
Sir Lenny Henry is one of the country’s best-loved comedians with a career spanning over forty years. Here he writes about his youth for the first time. You might think you know Lenny Henry.
In 1975, a gangly black sixteen-year-old apprentice factory worker from Dudley appeared on our TV screens for the first time. He had no idea he would go on to become a national treasure.
Here at last, Sir Lenny Henry tells the revealing and very funny story of his rise to fame. Surviving a tough family upbringing, along with the trauma of finding out the truth about his father at a young age, Lenny beat the odds. With a riotous warmth and his trademark energy, in ‘Who Am I, Again?’ he tells the heart-breakingly honest and inspirational story of his youth.
