Known for his dynamic humour, Leonard Henry often used to broadcast
from seaside resorts where he was appearing.
He was a true cockney, and a natural comic.
Leonard was a trained chemist, and was on the laboratory staff of a
firm of manufacturing chemists until he was involved in an explosion.
While he was recuperating at Southend, he saw the pierrot troupe
known as "Pick me up". He joined them, and broke into show business.
