It was Shirley Bassey that gave Lenny Beige his big break in the business 30 years ago at the Frinton Wintergardens. However, it is really only in the past few years that he has become something of a household name beyond the East Anglian Riviera.
His now infamous club The Regency Rooms in London’s West End began life in 1995 and sold out every one of its 10 seasons attracting ‘a well heeled and beautiful clientele’ (SUNDAY TIMES), Beige became a big cult hit and started appearing regularly on Channel 5’s Night Fever and TV chatshows. Over the five years of The Regency Rooms club Lenny built up a huge following, especially with celebrity clientele many of whom have performed alongside him; Robbie Williams, All Saints, Gail Porter, Davina McCall, Leo Sayer, Lionel Blair, Right Said Fred, Martin Fry, Terry Wogan, Adam Ant and Jamie Theakston to name but a small fraction. Some of those who did comic turns included Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Sacha Baron Cohen, Armstrong and Miller, John Thomson and many more.
He has just completed a sold out run at the Pigalle Club in Piccadilly with a Tribute to Anthony Newley that garnered rave reviews.
In 1997 he began the first of his one-man shows ‘One Man and His Talent’ which has sold out at the Edinburgh Festival for three years as well as his ‘Lunch with Lenny’ live chat show and he has toured the UK as well as a season at The Criterion Theatre.
He also hosted and wrote two series of Lenny Beige’s Variety Pack for the BBC which saw special guest acts that included Terry Wogan, Davina McCall, Tony Hadley and Chas n Dave. He is also a much sought after award ceremony host and has presented The London Club and Bar Awards for the last four years. He has recently been selling out the prestigious Pigalle Club on Piccadilly.
Lenny has two children and a wife who never talks to him.
