About Richard Herring

After initially establishing himself alongside Stewart Lee in the prolific comedy duo Lee & Herring, Richard enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer with radio shows such as Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World and Fist of Fun (Radio One), which then went on to become the popular comedy BBC2 series of the same name. He went on to co-develop This Morning with Richard Not Judy, a live comedy TV series for BBC2.

At the Edinburgh Festival Richard has established himself as a leading playwright, 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 shows include Richard Herring Is Fat, Richard Herring Is All Man, Christ On A Bike, Talking Cock, Someone Likes Yoghurt, Menage a Un and most recently Oh Fuck I'm 40. His hugely successful riposte to The Vagina Monologues; Talking Cock, has had versions performed in Paris, Berlin, Rome, Antwerp, Oslo and Helsinki. Ebury Press has also published a book version of Talking Cock which is due to be re-printed in 2008. With Al Murray, Richard devised and wrote 37 episodes of the sitcom Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One/Paramount) for Al's alter ego The Pub Landlord. He also wrote and starred in the comedy drama You Can Choose Your Friends (ITV).

In 2008 Richard wrote and recorded a third series of That Was Then This Is Now (BBC Radio 2), returned as a regular panelist for the third series of Banter (BBC Radio 4) and toured nationally with his Edinburgh 2007 show Oh Fuck I'm 40. Richard returned to the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2008 with his new show The Headmaster's Son.
