Lenny Beige's 'Covid Christmas
After what has been, hands down, the worst year in living memory, entertainment legend Lenny Beige has released a seasonal song that reflects these turbulent times.
‘Covid Christmas’ is very much a festive ditty that addresses what it is like to slide towards Christmas in the face of such confusion and adversity.
It’s very catchy, but thankfully you don’t need a mask to enjoy it.
Lenny has written, recorded, produced, the song and filmed and edited the video himself.
The reaction to the song and video has been really rather wonderful.

Lenny has entered the brave new world of Twitch. Once upon a time this was a gaming platform where hoardes of teenagers played hours of Call of Duty whilst chatting to each other. But recently the platform has begun to welcome more ambitous entertainment. Lenny, always the pioneer, is hosting his own channel with other characters like Queenie, The Mayor of kentish Town, Professor Adolphus Smallbridge all playing, chatting and generally providing unique entertainment. Friday nights are Beige nights in with Tuesday being Chatty Tuesday where Lenny interviews a special guest. Professor Adolphus plays Elder Scrolls online on Thursdays and the other characters pop up intermittently. Come and give us a 'Follow' and, if you have Amazon Prime it is FREE to 'Subscribe'

The Fabulous Doctor Singer - a radio drama
Just before everything went nuts, I went to Dublin to record a lovely radio play about the Shanahan Stam auction Scandal - its a classic conman story - based on a true tale of a flamboyant huckster called Dr Paul Singer who came to Ireland to swindle money. It is written and directed by Niall Murphy and is the kind of story crying out to be made into a movie. I play Dr Singer and based the voice on my own late father.
The play is up on the Newstalk website
Its on spotify also - https://open.spotify.com/episode/4fUGRSQpJL3UGHQimde4y8?si=z18CW0PbQz6NoZkeT_w-yA
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.
