Richard Herring: Lord Of The Dance Settee
Have you ever…
- considered the amazing power of the sombrero to eradicate all sadness?
- noticed the terrible curse of the UK’s oldest person? (whoever receives this poisoned chalice is always dead within months)
- become disillusioned with organised religion when you realise a childhood mishearing of a hymn means Jesus isn’t anywhere near as much fun as you thought?
Lord Of The Dance Settee is Richard Herring’s eleventh stand-up show in eleven years. Having sorted out politics (Hitler Moustache), religion (Christ On A Bike), love (What Is Love, Anyway?), death (We’re All Going Yo Die!) and spam-javelins (Talking Cock), he is in a frivolous mood with a show about daftness, being uncool and bouncing joyously on a sofa.
Herring has performed at nearly every Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 1987. In the 1990s he was in a double act with Stewart Lee (whatever happened to him?) in BBC2 cult classics Fist Of Fun and This Morning With Richard Not Judy. More recently he has created a raft of Sony and Chortle Award winning podcasts like Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, As It Occurs To Me, and Me1 Vs Me2 Snooker. You might have read his weekly column in the Metro, heard him on Just A Minute on BBC Radio 4 or seen him on a panel show being repeated on Dave.
