Henning Wehn

Henning WehnHenning Wehn is The German Comedy Ambassador to The United Kingdom. This is not the easiest of jobs because the 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 would do better. Wehn has been performing as the self-styled ‘German Comedy Ambassador’ ever since.

Henning Wehn regularly appears with fellow German performer Otto Kuhnle, and their show 1000 Years Of German Humour was nominated for the Barry Award at the 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival. Henning Wehn also regularly supports Stewart Lee on his tours.

His “beautifully crafted diatribes” (Time Out) are delivered with a passion that seems all too real and his intelligent material covers topics from football to the price of second-hand shoes, what the Germans think of our beloved ‘Allo ‘Allo series, to why humour is overrated and stand-up comedy pointless.

Quotes about Henning Wehn:

“Who said Germans have no sense of humour? Gloriously unreconstructed comedy” – Guardian

 “Glory lies ahead” – Time Out

“You want to urge him not to mention the war, but he surely does.” - Chortle

Winner Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, 2005
