Richard Herring


As one half of the prolific comedy duo Lee & Herring, Richard enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer with shows such as Fist of Fun (BBC Two) and This Morning with Richard Not Judy (BBC Two). In recent years he teamed up with Andrew Collins to co-host the Collins and Herring podcast on BBC 6 Music which the Guardian said paved the way for funny podcasts'.

Richard has recently completed a 94 date nationwide tour of his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show, Christ On A Bike: The Second Coming. In 2010 he also published his book, 'How Not To Grow Up', and released 'Hitler Moustache' - his acclaimed stand up show - on DVD.
