Comedian Lenny Henry is bringing his tour, Who Am I, Again? to Kent later this year.
The star of cult 80s shows Tiswas and Three of a Kind and co-founder of Comic Relief, has announced his tour ahead of the publication of his memoir in October.
Tickets for his date at the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells, which is on Friday, November 15, go on sale tomorrow.
In the first half of the show, Lenny will take the audience through a jam session of stories - triggered when writing his memoir - from growing up in the Black Country, puberty, school, friendship and family secrets to unashamed racism.
He will recount his rollercoaster ride of a career, which included being a cult star of children's television to being an award-winning actor with a PhD in Media Arts, but at every stage wondering: 'Am I good enough? Is this what they want?'
In the second half, he will be interviewed by friend, broadcaster and author Jon Canter, followed by questions from the audience.
He said: “Writing the book was a huge feat and I’m very proud of it - I can’t wait to share more stories and fun about growing up in the Midlands, my early days in the clubs, pubs and discotheques and of course working on Tiswas, Three of a Kind and The Lenny Henry Show.
"The show promises to be an evening of memories, laughter and fun - I can’t wait.”
He was awarded a knighthood for services to charity and drama in 2015.
His autobiography, Who Am I, Again?, is published by Faber & Faber on October 3.
