Lenny Henry In Pieces

Lenny Henry in Pieces is a British stand-up and sketch show by comedians Lenny Henry and Gina Yashere. It aired on BBC One between 2000 and 2003.

The show began with two Christmas specials in 2000 and 2001. The 2000 show won the Golden Rose of Montreux award. This was followed up by a six-part series in March 2002. A second and final series consisting of seven episodes began in March 2003.

This series saw Lenny spoof and pastiche various high budget films of the time. So working with Tim Searle (circa:Triffic Films) we approached this with the idea to have Lenny bustling in a film gate for space. For the final end logo I ended up breaking about ten sheets of glass with a hammer on my studio floor until I got the resultant break pattern as used in show.
