Elly Davis : I thought from the back, that's not Lenny, far too slim. Good work at getting himself trimmed up there!

Nik Turk : I think people have been harsh to Lenny over the years and he's often relegated to the shit bin when it comes to modern comedy but this shows just how great he can be with the right material. A fantastic surprise for the BBC and a welcome return for Lenny. Happy Birthday, Sir! Ooooooooooooooooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy ....

Hamish Murray : P L E A S E do another parody vid! This is amazing!!!

Georg Gerdon : Well bbc is not bad, but I watch their shows on Netflix and this here....

Namvar : While I agree with this message that my generation spends more time antisocially on our phones then watching tv with our families, using This is America as the basis for the parody trivialises the message of the original song. On top of that as much I like Lenny Henry I feel like his material has become stale and a tad repetitive, other than the odd clever observation in “This is the Tv” I didn’t really find it funny. I guess to summarise Lenny Henry is loveable, entertaining, and funny in a way where you can’t help but like the guy, however his material has become a little stale. Lenny ought to appear on more panel shows, and update his material a bit.

Matthew Peyton : I totally didn't read that as 'Lenny Henry is dead'...... <_< >_>

Caroline Dowling : Can't get enough of this, hilarious 😂

Inisa Jefferson : These parodies are so disrespectful but this is so true.

the man with the green cortina : Especially on the BBC where nothing is watchable!

Captain Melvin Seahorse : That was awful!!! And no "we" didn't used to like little Britain and "we" definitely didn't used to like the Catherine Tate show!
