The Lenny Henry Show was a comedy sketch show featuring Lenny Henry. In its first incarnation it ran for two seasons on BBC 1, in 1984 and 1985. Each season had six episodes. A 40-minute special was aired in December 1987. The show was later revived twice, in 1995 and 2003-2005.

Recurring guests include Nicholas Lyndhurst (3 episodes) and Robbie Coltrane (2 episodes).

Bands featured on the 1984 series included Musical Youth and Second Image.

Two spin-off series followed in a sitcom format, starring Henry as Delbert Wilkins, a well-meaning but trouble-prone pirate radio DJ. At the end, Wilkins went "legit", gaining a job with the BBC World Service, and a son.
