Richard Herring
FameRank: 6

"Richard Keith Herring" is a British comedian and writer, whose early work includes the comedy double-act Lee and Herring. He is described by the British Theatre Guide as "one of the leading hidden masters of modern British comedy".

He is celebrated for concept-lead one-person live stand-up shows like Talking Cock, Hitler Moustache and Christ on a Bike. Since 2004, Herring has created a new show every year: developing them at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, touring them extensively throughout the year, and recording the final performance for DVD. His 2014 show, Lord of the Dance Settee is his eleventh consecutive stand-up show in eleven years.

He is also recognized a pioneer of comedy podcasting, initially with broadcaster Andrew Collins (broadcaster)/Andrew Collins on The Collings and Herrin Podcast and more recently with high-profile comedians such as Stephen Merchant, Russell Brand and Stephen Fry on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast.

We're leaving all our equipment in place. Everything's staying. I really think there's a lot that's going to happen to keep the building in use and continue to serve the community.

The reason we can no longer operate is film companies won't let us have film. Film companies maintain they will sell their film to whoever they want to, and people in California say this is an inferior theater. Now, they've never been in it.
