2017 Edinburgh Fringe

Richard Herring: Oh Frig, I'm 50!

  • Comedy (60 minutes)
Richard Herring: Oh Frig, I'm 50!. Richard Herring

'I only regret the people I didn't have sex with... And 60% of the people I did have sex with.' 'The King of Edinburgh' (List) makes a triumphant return on the 30th anniversary of his first Fringe, with his 40th show in his 50th year. Older and wiser? Or just older? And more stupid. Following on from Oh F*ck, I'm 40!, this is the second (and let's face it, almost certainly penultimate) instalment in Herring's once-a-decade examination of ageing. 'A gloriously infantile delight in mischief, provocation and inspired rudeness' (Guardian).
