2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the Alderney Theatre Group and they intend to celebrate this magnificent milestone with several special and exciting productions and celebrity guest performers. On 13th June Alderney Theatre Group are welcoming Germany’s comedy ambassador Henning Wehn.
He’ll have you in stitches! Being a comedian is not the easiest of jobs because Germans allegedly do not have a sense of humour. Henning does not find that funny! He took office in October 2003 after watching an open mic night that left him convinced that he wouldn’t be all that much worse.
You couldn’t make it up; surely the German Comedy Ambassador 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 Times “Wehn wraps his vowels around the issues of immigration and identity. And he triumphs at it”. The Guardian sums it up with just “Cor blimey” .
Henning Wehn’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 Cats Does Countdown” Channel 4, “Fighting Talk” BBC Radio 5 Live and “The Unbelievable Truth” BBC Radio 4. Henning is currently on tour across the UK and , after his Alderney show, he will perform in Jersey two nights later.
Tickets are £25 and will go on sale on 17 April at Shirley’s in Victoria Street. This is expected to be a sell-out and if you are not on the island, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve tickets.
