Acclaimed comedian Richard Herring is to bring his new show to Nottingham Glee Club early next year.

He will perform Richard Herring: Lord Of The Dance Settee at the venue on February 26.

After covering weighty issues like death, love, religion and spam javelins, Herring returns with a show about daftness, being uncool and bouncing joyously on the sofa.

There is such a vast amount of Richard’s (high quality) material, writing, podcast and more to enjoy on his site, you should really check it out. See www.richardherring.com for more.

Over the course of the last 25 years, Richard Herring initially formed a top-rated double act with Stewart Lee as a writer and performer, contributing material to On The Hour and then starring on radio and TV in Fist Of Fun and later This Morning With Richard Not Judy.

Since going it alone, he has written and performed numerous popular stand-up shows and is back early next year for more.

Doors open at 6.45pm. Tickets are £15 and the show is for those aged 18 and over.
