Another great night of comedy comes to The No5 Club on June 10 when Richard Herring previews his new Edinburgh show ‘What is Love’ at the Drayton.

Tickets are on sale now at and are likely to sell out fast..

Herring is one of the UK’s most prolific comedians. He finished the latest series of his Chortle Award-winning and Sony-nominated audio podcast and sketch show As It Occurs To Me in Autumn 2010, his new book How Not To Grow Up was published in May and the DVD of his acclaimed stand up shop Hitler Moustache was released in October. He also wrote and performed in the 2010 Radio 4 series Richard Herring’s Objective.

Richard’s recent TV appearances include Genius (BBC Two), Have I Got News For You (BBC One) and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He currently co-hosts the Saturday morning breakfast show on Radio 6 Music with Andrew Collins and they continue to record their weekly Collings and Herring podcast on a laptop in Rich’s attic. The podcasts get up to 50,000 downloads per episode.

Herring has established himself as a leading playwright at Edinburgh, penning and appearing in several critically acclaimed plays including Punk’s Not Dead, Excavating Rita and It’s Not the End of the World. His one-man Edinburgh shows include Talking Cock, Someone Likes Yoghurt, ménage a un, Oh Fuck I’m 40 and The Headmaster’s Son. Richard’s blog Warming Up has gained a cult following since he began writing it in November 2002 and has written an entry for every single day, well over 3000 consecutive entries.

As one half of the prolific comedy duo Lee & Herring, Richard Herring enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer with shows such as Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World, Fist of Fun (BBC Radio 1/BBC Two) and This Morning with Richard Not Judy (BBC Two).
