Standing up for the demons...

Richard Herring lands Radio 4 show

Richard Herring is to front a new Radio 4 series, inspired in part by his live show Hitler’s Moustache.

In Richard Herring Objects, the comic will ‘rehabilitate the reputation of six cultural demons’ – including the dictator’s facial foliage and the hoodie.

The shows will be recorded in front of an audience in September, once Herring returns from the Edinburgh Fringe where he is reviving his 2001 show Christ On A Bike, and are expected to air in November.

His Hitler Moustache stand-up show is also due out on DVD in October. Click here to preorder it.

See our Free Tickets page for details of the recording.
