Richard Herring: Oh Frig I’m 50 – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs Ten years ago, in the depths of a mid-life crisis, Richard Herring’s stand-up showOh Fuck I’m 40 was an angry rant at the world. Single, drinking too much and hankering after his youth, Herring got some great material out of his increasingly dysfunctional life. Never one to hold back, his personal life laid out for all to ...

Richard Herring: The Best– The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Matt Forrest We’ve all done it: knocking up a compilation tape or CD for that special someone in our life (I know I’m showing my age).Putting our favourite tunes all in one place can be an arduous task and one that requires a great deal of time and patience, but thoroughly enjoyable in the end.

Richard Herring: The Best – The Old Rep, Birmingham

Reviewer:  George Attwell Gerhards Nobody likes the last episode in the series of Mock the Week.

Richard Herring: Lord of the Dance Settee – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Jo Beggs Richard Herring is forty-seven. ‘How is that relevant?’ you might ask. Well, clearly he thinks it is, because he tells us, just as he’s told us how old he is in just about every show he’s done in the past ten years. You might say he’s a bit obsessed with the passing years. In 2007 Oh Fuck, ...

Richard Herring, We’re All Going To Die – The Lowry, Salford

Writer: Richard Herring Reviewer: Laura Orton We are all going to die. Fact. Death is one of life's very few guarantees. And it is always approached as such a sombre and dower subject. This is why Richard Herring's latest stand-up show is such a special gem. He breathes life into the depressing subject, making it hilariously funny, pointing out the ...

Richard Herring : Talking Cock – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Luke Walker [Rating: 4] Ten years ago, Richard Herring revealed his show, Talking Cock, for the first time at the Edinburgh Festival. A massive hit then led to national and international tours, the show being translated and performed in several languages and even a book deal. Now, Herring resurrects his show entirely focussed on the male genitalia and, of ...
