“Have you ever considered the amazing power of the sombrero to eradicate all sadness?” Richard asked.

“Have you ever noticed the terrible curse of the UK’s oldest person? Whoever receives this poisoned chalice is always dead within months. Have you ever 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 11th stand-up show in 11 years. Having sorted out politics (Hitler Moustache), religion (Christ on a Bike), love (What is Love, Anyway?), and death (We’re All Going to Die!), he is in a frivolous mood with a show about daftness, being uncool and bouncing joyously on a sofa.

Richard has performed at nearly every Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 1987.

In the 1990s he was in a double act with Stewart Lee 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 including Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, As It Occurs To Me and Me1 Vs Me2 Snooker.
