One of Britain’s best-loved comedians has helped promote a Valentine’s Day event at Luton’s UK Centre for Carnival Arts.

Lenny Henry retweeted a flyer from You’re Having a Laugh which is being presented by The Comedy Lounge in association with Heritage & Jam Rock Radio at UKCCA at 8pm on February 14.

The Comedy Lounge’s Mike Murray said: “I’m surprised and delighted. Lenny’s obviously decided to support his fellow professionals which speaks volumes for the man.

“I’ll be sending him a personal invite.”

The fantastic line-up on the night includes Slim – allegedly the funniest man in the UK – and Glenda Jaxson, aka the Duchess of Comedy. They’ll be joined by new boy on the block Mr Cee and President Obonjo, who launched his career through social media.

The Comedy Lounge is rapidly becoming synonymous with top rate shows in town. They were behind the sell-out Jerek & Jollof at Luton’s Library Theatre and You’re Having a Laugh looks set to be equally successful.
