Apparently star of Chef and that programme about the headmaster who goes to the school which is a bit rubbish but becomes a bit better by the end, you know – the one that had the big Scottish bloke in and that woman of that other programme, Lenny Henry is making a programme about the British sense of humour. He will look at what makes the people of Britain laugh individually and collectively.
[Pause for punchline]
Pity he didn’t do it before his last series.
Variants on this joke referring to other aspects of Mr Henry’s career (including particularly the grimfest that is Comic Relief) will be available in LJs and blogs around the country later today.
