2 Brand New Shows for '22
Previously I presented my ‘In Character’ show with 5 characters - I added a couple more for a show at the Underbelly. Now, I am presenting 5 brand new characters including a style guru, a northern soul DJ, a former violent geography teacher, a modern druid and a former Royal butler. The show features original music by me also.
This is a work in development, a preview if you will. It is at the wonderful Museum of Comedy on Thursday 13th January at 7pm.
You may be very aware that for the past few months I have been showing some fantastic old clips about how we used to live. This sparked the idea of creating a spoof social commentary show featuring many of these clips.
Part stand up, part spoof lecture it is a work in development at it previews at the Museum of Comedy on Thursday 20th January at 7pm.
Beige Waits For All - World Premiere
Thursday 4th November 2021
Crazy Coqs, Brasserie Zédel
After paying homage to Anthony Newley and Neil Diamond the be-wigged legend tackles the utterly unique stylings of songwriter/performer Tom Waits. In the past few years Lenny has grown to love Tom’s musical tales of the seedier side of life and all its darker and flawed inhabitants. Backed by his world-class quartet, under the musical direction of outstanding blues guitarist Todd Sharpville, Lenny will interpret classics from the Waits cannon including, Tom Traubert’s Blues, Blue Valentine, In The Neighbourhood, Heart of Saturday Night, Burma Shave and more.

The Voices Project
A 14 Track Album
Over the past year I have been fiddling about with some delicious voices, some more well known than others. That fiddling about has turned into an album's worth of tracks called The Voices Project.
This is a long player of 14 tracks composed and produced by myself inspired by the voices I have sampled. These range from interviews with Tom Baker, Richard Burton, Eartha Kitt and David Coverdale to documentaries like I'm Your Number One Fan, and movies featuring Ben Kingsley, Bob Hoskins and Viggo Mortenson. They are all distinctive voices that have inspired very different compositions. I've never released anything like this before but so far the reaction has been really positive.
You can listen for free and also buy and download the album at Bandcamp. Please click the button below.
After Lenny began his Twitch.TV journey in November 2020 hoisting shows, quizzes and allowing the likes of Queenie, Lyn and The Mayor to sit in for him, Steve decided to start streaming as himself.
The shows have become a very warm platform for the community of viewers (the Furious - The Furst & The Furious - geddit?!?) to share clips and videos. Through the Discord channel people leave their suggestions for the regular items; The Furst Fantasy Festival, The Museum of Detritus, Curiosity Corner.
The shows are most days of the week - evenings and sometimes lunchtimes too.

Lenny Beige YouTube Channel
Since the Lockdown began, at the end of March, Lenny Beige has been very busy presenting twice weekly shows which started life as a mixture of songs, gags and shout-outs to the viewers. By week 5 it was decided to make the Tuesday shows an interview-based format with a few songs, with the Friday night shows continuing as they had before. They started life being filmed on the phone streaming to Facebook Live and Instagram (when technology would allow) but we upgraded to a Mevo camera which is a dedicated streaming camera that acts like a TV gallery where you can cut from a wide to a close up shot and pan across the frame too. The Beige Family very kindly contributed their own money to buy this piece of kit to increase their viewing pleasure
The end result is a new YouTube Channel with content from the past 5 weeks' shows with more vintage footage being added too. We shall be changing the shows we do in the future, but, rest assured, we shall be updating and enlarging the Beige body of work.
