You couldn’t make it up; surely the German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn hasn’t bosched out yet another new show? And what’s he still doing here anyway? Well, his lack of transferable skills is what keeps him here and his belief that practise makes perfect is what keeps him going.
This show is a much needed call to arms. Listen, everyone: stop pondering and hand-wringing. Instead get on your bike and put your face to the grindstone!
The self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador in London', Henning Wehn is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme 'FAQ U' and has appeared on the BBC Radio 5 Live radio show 'Fighting Talk ', where he is 'in it, to win it', as well as two appearances on Radio 4's 'The Unbelievable Truth'. Wehn's act plays upon the prevailing post-war stereotype of Germans; a large part of his routine is based around comprehensively analyzing and explaining his punchlines and jokes in the smallest detail. 'A diplomatic master class' (The Scotsman) 'Brought the audience to its knees' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Marvellous' (The Guardian).
