Henning Wehn - Get On With It
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 practice makes perfect is what keeps him going.
This show is a much needed call to arms. Listen, everyone: stop pondering and hand-wringing. Indtead get on your bike and put your face to the grindstone!
“As subtle as Schumacher on Battiston” some bloke on Twitter
“Die entgueltige Teilung Europas – das ist mein Auftrag” Henning himself
Henning’s most recent television and radio appearances include “Live At The Apollo” BBC2, “Have I Got News For You” BBC1, “Would I Lie To You” BBC1, “8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown” Channel 4, “Fighting Talk” BBC Radio 5 Live and “The Unbelievable Truth” BBC Radio 4
“Wehn wraps his vowels around the issues of immigration and identity. And he triumphs as it” The Times
“Cor blimey” The Guardian
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).
