Lenny made his TV debut on a talent show called New Faces in 1975 at the age of 16, with his impersonation of Stevie Wonder. He won and went on to The Fosters and Tiswas. In 1989, Lenny Henry made the stand-up comedy movie Lenny Live and Unleashed which caught the eyes of the Walt Disney Company, which gave him the lead role in the American movie True Identity (1991).
Lenny then became well-known in the United States for the role of Gareth Blackstock in the hit BBC show Chef (1993). He has famously headlined the Lenny Henry Show and co-founded Comic Relief, as well as being awarded a CBE in 1999 and received a Lifetime Achievement gong at the British Comedy Awards in 2003.
