Lenny Henry on 'extraordinary' National Theatre debut

Lenny Henry is one of Britain's best known comedians, but he changed direction two years ago by taking on the role of Othello - to huge acclaim.

The star talks to BBC Breakfast about his role in Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors at the National Theatre and his one-off TV comedy special - which will be shown this Christmas.
