Henning Wehn

German Comedy Ambassador

Henning Wehn is the (unofficial) German Comedy Ambassador to the United Kingdom. This is not the easiest of jobs because Germans allegedly do not have a sense of humour. Henning does not find that very funny.

"One of the most sure-footed stand-ups on the circuit."

How he presents

The role of German Comedy Ambassador can be a daunting task, but with ruthless efficiency Henning bridges the gulf between two great comic nations.

In Detail

Henning took office after watching an open mic night that left him convinced that he would do better, and has been performing as the self-styled German Comedy Ambassador ever since. He's now a regular on the club and comedy festival circuit, and has toured the UK with wry insights on the age old rivalry between his new home and his native land. Now a TV and radio regular, Henning often appears on Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You?, 8 Out of 10 Cats, and QI, as well as Radio 4's The Unbelievable Truth and 5Live's Fighting Talk. On more serious issues he's presented Channel 4's An Immigrant's Guide to Britain, a look at the cultural divisions between East and West Germany for the BBC World Service, and even performed standup on Newsnight as a contribution to the EU debate.


Whether it's sport, economics, politics or war, Henning subtly mocks the stereotypes of both nations, brilliantly sending up Britain's indifference and fondness for nostalgia and Germany's efficiency and logic.
