Richard Herring

Richard Herring is returning to stand-up for the first time in six years with a brand new show, Can I Have My Ball Back?. The 34 date tour will run between May and July 2024.

The show's blurb explains: "In 2021 Richard Herring went to his GP to find out why his right testicle seemed to be growing bigger. It turned out that he had testicular cancer and one month later he was lying in hospital waiting to have his murderous ball removed. Would he survive? (No spoilers!). For a comedian who had done a whole show on male genitalia (Talking Cock) and written a book about toxic masculinity (The Problem With Men) this felt like some cruel trick of fate. In his much-anticipated return to stand-up after six years, Richard talks bollocks and answers the question on everyone's lips: Is a severed gonad in a jar a fitting prize to bring in for Taskmaster?"

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday 8th December with an exclusive fan pre-sale today for subscribers to the premium version of his podcast, RHLSTP.
