Never miss another 'Richard Herring' show
Talking C*ck: The Second Coming: Richard Herring
It's an object of shame and pride; it inspires laughter and fear; it's a symbol of power, yet it's incredibly fragile; it can be a pound of flesh or an ounce of winkles, it can be used to express both love and hate; it creates life, it can condemn us to death... and it can do wees as well.
How can one tiny flap of sponge and sinew be all these things?
Richard Herring intends to find out in this tenth anniversary update of the critically acclaimed show that exposes the truth about men and their flutes of love.
Sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe 2002 and Melbourne Comedy Festival 2003, translated and performed in over a dozen European countries, published as a book by Ebury press.
"Man's answer to the Vagina Monologues" - Guardian
"An impassioned and thoughtful disquisition on masculinity, cultural identity and sexual anthropology… but there are still loads of jokes about porridge guns." - Observer
"His Cock is as funny and fascinating for women as it is for men. I loved it. I only wished it could have been longer." - Scotsman
As one half of the prolific comedy duo Lee & Herring, Richard enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer with shows such as Fist of Fun (BBC Two) and This Morning with Richard Not Judy (BBC Two). In recent years he teamed up with Andrew Collins to co-host the Collins and Herring podcast on BBC 6 Music which the Guardian said paved the way for funny podcasts'.
Both the Collins and Herring podcast and his Chortle award-winning and Sony award-nominated podcast As It Occurs To Me are available to download from http://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts and iTunes.
Richard has recently completed a 94 date nationwide tour of his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show, Christ on a Bike: The Second Coming. In 2010 he also published his book, 'How Not To Grow Up', and released 'Hitler Moustache' - his acclaimed stand up show - on DVD.
'Herring is a superior comedian... Hilarious' (The Guardian)
'Stimulating and exhilarating... Utterly Hilarious' (Chortle).
