THE self-styled comedy ambassador for Germany will take to the stage with a brand new show at Lighthouse, Poole's centre for the arts, on Saturday, March 28, 2020.

Henning Wehn returns with Get On With It, a much-needed call to arms telling audiences to stop pondering and instead "get on your bike and put your face to the grindstone."

Born in Hagen, Germany, Henning moved to the UK in 2002. He entered the comedy circuit after spontaneously taking part in an open-mic night, going on to work as a warm-up act for various comedians in London.

Since 2003, Henning has appeared on a wide variety of popular panel and comedy shows, including 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You, Room 101, QI and Would I Lie To You? He is also a recurring panellist on BBC Radio 5Live's comedy sports show Fighting Talk, as well as the BBC Radio 4 panel game The Unbelievable Truth.

Although touring mostly on his own, Henning is occasionally joined by fellow countryman Otto Kuhnle. The duo's show, 1000 Years of German Humour, was nominated for the Barry Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2009.

In 2015, Henning presented An Immigrant's Guide to Britain on Channel 4. Later that year, he was the presenter of the BBC World Service radio documentary Wall in the Head, which explored the divide between East and West Germans 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The comedian also appeared as a panellist on the 2015, 2016 and 2017 series of The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice for both the BBC and Channel 4.

Henning's comedy style typically mocks and celebrates some of the common stereotypes associated with German people. Since 2011, he has hosted several tours around the UK and returns in 2020 to venues across the country.

Tickets for the show at Lighthouse, which begins at 7.30pm, are £23.50, available from the pavilion website or by contacting the box office.

Henning will also be performing at Weymouth Pavilion on Saturday, February 22.
