Richard Herring is Talking Cock in your ears and in your face, no, he really is…

Not content with his daily Warming Up blog and weekly Metro column, Richard Herrring is bringing his much acclaimed Talking Cock to a climax with us at The Stand Comedy Club. 

Rich is on the final leg of his Talking Cock Tour which comes to Glasgow Comedy Festival at The Garage on March 25th and at The Stand Edinburgh on the March 26th.

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.

'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.' Stephanie Merritt, 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' Kate Copstick, Scotsman

'Funny, humiliating, impassioned and weird in equal parts... Splendid!' Stephen Armstrong, Sunday Times

During the tour Richard has been recording a weekly Talking Cock Podcast with loads of extra love-flute based facts and answers from his questionnaire, nearly all stuff that does not appear in the show (so you can listen to it even if you haven't seen the tour yet). Check them out at the British Comedy Guide and on iTunes

In other podcast news, it has been confirmed that both Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Podcast (RHLSP) and Richard Herring’s Edinburgh Fringe Podcast (RHEFP) will return this year. 

RHEFP is recorded live each day at The Stand and will be the self-proclaimed King of Edinburgh’s third year of podcasting with us.  With past guests including Tony Law, Simon Munnery, Adam Buxton, Sarah Millican, Al Murray, Brendan Burns, Dave Gorman, hardcore wrestling supertsar Mick Foley and Blue Peter’s Janet Ellis, you can be sure that we’ll be back bigger and better this year.  You can listen to all previous RHEFP podcasts HERE.
