After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns.... though he still couldn't eat a whole one.
As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn't lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society.
Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement? You’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class.
Expect an evening-long crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!
“A diplomatic master class” The Scotsman
“Brought the audience to its knees” The Telegraph
“Marvellous” The Guardian
Henning’s recent TV and radio appearances include various 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Would I Lie To You (BBC1), Room 101 (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Alternative Comedy Experience (Comedy Central), The Matt Lucas Awards (BBC1), QI (BBC2), Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave, unsurprisingly), The Unbelievable Truth and The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), Fighting Talk (BBC Five Live) and his own six part series on BBC Radio 2, Henning Knows Best.
