We went to see Lenny Henry at the State Theatre last night. It still blows my mind that such a gorgeous piece of old architecture and internal decor has been allowed to survive. It is always an extra thrill to be going to see an artist at this venue.
Lenny was fan-bloody-tastic. He is such a funny, talented man. Not only is he very funny but he can sing too. What is it with comedians who can sing? Jason Alexander, now Lenny.
I am in awe of talented people. Probably because I can't sing, dance, play an instrument or even tell a half decent joke. I guess that's why talented people are revered and we line up to pay big dollars to see and hear them. The rest of us just have to make do with shuffling through our mediocre lives, warmed by a few brief moments in the company of the "special" ones.
Fuck me. How did a post about Lenny Henry turn into such a morose load of bullshit? Sorry.
