From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henning Wehn (born 10 April 1974 in Hagen) is a German stand-up comedian based in London.

Since October 2003 Wehn has been self-styled the "German Comedy Ambassador in London". After beginning his career as "warm-up act" to various comedians in London, he now has his own act on the British comedy circuit.

In addition he is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme "FAQ U" (on Channel 4), produced by Endemol 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. He also appears in Germany on a comedy programme with local radio station Antenne Münster.

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.


CD album / DVDs

In 2004 Wehn released material on a CD under the title What happened there....

There are also two DVDs available Four World Cups And One World Pope and 1000 Years Of German Humour.
