The King of Edinburgh (see ThreeWeeks Issue 1) has a lot on his plate at the moment. As we speak, he’s writing a Radio Four programme and performing a stand-up show, but still finds time to record a daily podcast with a host of special guest comedians. Conversation covers the topic of his guests’ own shows as well as touching on Herring’s personal life, and revealing a startling amount of information about his past relationships with fellow celebrities. He touches on whatever comes to mind or is in the news – the riots and other topics not for the faint-hearted. In a venue so intimate, Herring can hold eye-contact with all of the audience in turn, which makes this an unmatched experience for his fans.
The Stand Comedy Club, 3 – 29 Aug (not 4, 15), 2:20pm (3:20pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp140.
