Titled Who Am I, Again?, the tour is set to come shortly after the publication of his memoir of the same name, and will cover similar themes.
The first part of the show will see Henry talk about what life was like growing up, covering topics including puberty, school, friendship, family secrets and racism.
In the second half, Henry will be interviewed by author and broadcaster Jon Canter on his life and career — this will be followed by the opportunity for the audience to put questions to the comedian.
Henry has been working in comedy since the age of 16 and is known for his work as a writer, radio DJ, TV presenter and as the co-founder of Comic Relief.
In 1985, the first series of The Lenny Henry Show aired on BBC, featuring stand-up and spoofs — the show continued to run periodically for another 19 years.
