Following the success of his 2013 Edinburgh Fringe stand up show We’re All Going To Die! at the Pleasance Beyond, Richard Herring is embarking on a 2014 UK tour.
After sorting out politics (Hitler Moustache), religion (Christ on a Bike), love (What is Love, Anyway?) and penises (Talking Cock) Herring returns to tackles the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveller returns (apart from Jesus and that canoe bloke). Is death a tragedy or an excuse to have an extended lie-in? Are we snuffed out or forced to endure eternity without bodily pleasures? Death is inevitable, so let’s laugh in its face while our hearts still beat and our jaws are still attached.
Herring was formerly one half of a stand-up comedy double act with Stewart Lee, best known for television work including Fist of Fun and This Morning With Richard Not Judy. He co-wrote and presented the history based sketch show That Was Then, This Is Now and has written for television including Al Murray’s sitcom Time Gentlemen Please and his own ITV comedy drama You Can Choose Your Friends.
