BAFTA Award-winning TV producer Henry Normal is coming to Kidderminster Town Hall later this year.

Henry’s new show, which is touring nationally, draws on over 40 years of work and features material from his acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series and his ten poetry books, including the two latest collections.

It's a show where comedy meets poetry and features stories, jokes and poems from an incredible body of work and covering an extraordinary life and career.

His co-writing credits include The Royle Family, Mrs Merton, Coogan’s Run and feature film The Parole Officer.

As co-founder and MD of Baby Cow Productions which he set up with Steve Coogan, he produced amongst others Gavin and Stacey, Alan Partridge, Moone Boy, Uncle, The Mighty Boosh, Nighty Night and the Oscar-nominated film Philomena.

Prior to his TV career, Henry toured as a performance poet with Pulp and new wave bands; stand up greats like Linda Smith and literary giants including Seamus Heaney. In this previous life, Henry travelled from Helsinki to New York via factories, schools, pop concerts, jazz clubs, folk clubs and festivals.

Following the success of Henry’s poetry collections The Beauty Within Shadow and Distance Between Clouds, which were both written during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, he released Collected Poems Vol. 1 in November 2021.

His latest poetry collection, Collected Poems Vol. 2, will be published on 1st August 2022.

Other projects Henry is currently working on include an episode of the BBC biography series “Great Lives”, in which he will be exploring the life of his literary hero and biggest inspiration, Spike Milligan.

Henry will be bringing his show to the town hall on April 14 2022.
