AS Britain's favourite German comedian, Henning Wehn doesn't have much competition.

However, having lived in London for 12 years, Wehn admits that he now is not sure where he feels most at home.

Wehn says this feeling hit home when playing a gig in Bolton, when he was heckled by a member of the audience, who told him to go back to London, which was punctuated by a word that cannot be reproduced in a family newspaper.

Having explored his crisis of identity and revisiting aspects of his last show in the first half, Wehn then takes us through his new show, Ein Zwei DIY, which offers a wry look at how the cultural, financial and social institutions of his homeland and his adopted country differ.

He says how incongruous it his for him to live in a country which is obsessed with home ownership and mortgages, with Germans more happy to rent, and how organisations such as Wonga can cause devastation to poor families in need of a quick fix to solve a financial problem.

After reading that last sentence, you could be forgiven for thinking how such topics could brought up at a comedy night without it sending the audience into a bored stupor.

But the near sell-out at The Lowry have no such qualms. Wehn is a naturally funny man, and it is as much his delivery as the topics he explores that sends the audience into rapture.

Admittedly, at times it feels as though we are attending a lecture rather than a comedy gig, but the show grows stronger through the second half, with Wehn intertwining his unique brand of Westphalian humour with interesting political and social arguments.

He says Britain is a place where you can fulfil your dreams, which draws some titters from the audience, but Wehn is an example of this.

He originally worked in marketing at Wycombe Wanderers, but having saw an advert for a comedy night in a room above a pub, he decided he would become a stand up comedian.

And 12 years later, Wehn may have to describe himself as a British comedian, such is his assimilation into his new homeland.
