Richard Herring: Christ On A Bike!
This year Richard Herring realised that he was the same age of Jesus when he died. But has he acheived as much as the supposed Messiah? Some would argue not. But one man dares argue otherwise.
Richard Herring's had a busy year - churning out an unprecedented number of scripts for Al Murray's enjoyable Sky One sitcom.
Yet somehow he's still found time to write this top-notch solo show, in which he compares his life to that of Jesus, humbly hinting that he may be the next true messiah.
It's an excuse, of course, to debunk religion - a theme that will already be familiar to Herring's fans, and done in typically droll yet naive style.
But it's a rich vein to mine, and certainly produces a steady stream of brilliant comedy nuggets as the Somerset misfit justifies his own inadequacies by drawing parallels to the life of Jesus.
The tight show's a textbook example of how to structure a monologue, with recurring themes and joke callbacks incongruously incorporated into the bright narrative.
And anyone who can get seven fantastic minutes of hilarious material out of just one incomprehensible page of the Bible - including an impressive, verbatim learning of the opaque text - must be touched by the comedy God, at least
It's a hugely enjoyable rant - although ultimately revealing very little - underlining Herring's place as one of the finest comedy writers around.
Eight years on I still remember this as the funniest comedy monologue I have ever seen. I literally cried with laughter until my sides hurt.
My son and I saw this in Edinburgh in August, 2001. Being from the US we had never heard of Richard Herring. The show was the most hilarious comedy routine we had ever seen. I wish I had smuggled in a tape recorder so that I could hear it again.
I saw this show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2002. One of the best shows I've ever seen and a wonderful example of stand-up comedy.
Christ On A Bike rocks!
There is nothing funny about the miracles of Jesus and if you think there is you should be ashamed of yourself.
Totally fantastic I laughed so much I nearly puked.
LOVED it! Fantastic - go and see it now!
I saw this Saturday night and I thought it was rubbish, but afterwards Richard Herring himself bought the entire audience lots of alcohol - surely this man is the Son of God.
Seen this twice. It is slick, thoughtful and very funny.
I saw this as a preview in Brighton and it was shite. obviously got much better. No doubt he'll tour it afterwards so will try and catch it again
Having just seen a preview show in London, I'd certainly recommend this one. It is very, very funny!
