German Stand-Up Comedian

Henning Wehn is a German stand-up comedian based in London.

Wehn studied Business Administration in Münster and worked in customer relations. In 2002, he moved to the United Kingdom to work in the marketing department of Wycombe Wanderers. One evening, he saw an open mic night and decided to try comedy.

As a result, since October 2003, Wehn has been the self-styled “German Comedy Ambassador in London”. After beginning his career as “warm-up act” to various comedians in London (including Stewart Lee for Comedy Vehicle), he now has his own act on the British comedy circuit.

Wehn has appeared on the panel shows 8 Out of 10 CatsHave I Got News For YouRoom 101Would I Lie To You?8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and QI. He also appeared on Channel 4’s political discussion/comedy show 10 O’Clock Live in May 2013. He is a recurring panellist on both the BBC Radio Five Live comedy sports show Fighting Talk and on the BBC Radio Four panel game The Unbelievable Truth. Wehn also appeared as a panellist on the 2015, 2016 and 2017 series of The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice for both the BBC and Channel 4.

In 2014, Wehn and fellow comedian Mark Watson fronted a travelogue in Brazil called The Road to Rio for Dave. In the show, they explored the country’s sporting culture, tying in with the 2014 World Cup held in the country.

In October that same year, Wehn was the presenter of the BBC World Service radio documentary Wall in the Head in which he explored “the invisible cultural and psychological divide” between East and West Germans twenty five years after German reunification following the fall of the Berlin Wall.
