A London-based German comedian, Wehn has been performing as the self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador' since 2003, playing on the English stereotype of Germans as humourless Nazis, obsessed with efficiency.

He was a regular on the Channel 4 show FAQ U in 2005, as well as Radio 5 Live sporting panel show Fighting Talk.

He regularly appears with fellow German performer Otto Kuhnle, and their show 1000 Years Of German Humour was nominated for the Barry Award at the 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Henning Wehn to make more Immigrant's Guides

Channel 4 orders three new episodes

German comedian Henning Wehn has been commissioned to make three more Immigrant's Guide To… programmes for Channel 4.

It follows the success of a pilot which aired  last May featuring the self-styled German comedy ambassador.

In the series Wehn will be joined by fellow immigrants such as a Hungarian who tries to work out how close is too close when it comes to invading someone’s personal space and a Ghanaian who tries to get his head around why Brits think caravanning is a holiday.

As before, the show will combine reports, sketches and hidden camera experiments.

Channel 4 says: ‘We find out whether telling a stranger that you have an angry rash on your testicles is too much information, or whether Brits will give money to a charity that claims to steal British children and send them to Africa, and that if you tell someone "their presentation was fantastic and that you always love having them around," you actually meant "their work was awful and you wish they were dead."’

Emily Hudd, managing director of programme-maker Rumpus Media said: ‘We're delighted that the first programme was so well received that Henning and the gang will be back to explore how to make friends and integrate people in Britain in three new programmes.’
