Henning is The German Comedy Ambassador in 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. Since then he has done 20m warm-up sets for comedians as diverse as Jo Brand and Jerry Sadowitz.
Though unfamiliar with the concept of stand-up comedy he gathered plenty of stage experience compering various tourist events for a German tour operator. Furthermore, he had his own comedy format on local radio station Antenne Münster.
"You want to urge him not to mention the war, but he surely does." (Steve Bennett)
