Richard Herring May Extra

Hi all
Just a quick note to let you know that Edinburgh Fringe tickets are now on sale. Book now to ensure you get to see my new stand up show and play.

After covering weighty issues like death, love, religion and spam javelins, 'The King of Edinburgh' ]List is in a frivolous mood with this show about daftness, whether the term cool comedian is an oxymoron, bouncing joyously on the sofa and how Herring's whole career is a failed attempt to top a piece of visual slapstick comedy he came up with at 16. Can he revisit the joke thirty years on or will it smash his old bones? 'Dependably funny' ( 'A new Richard Herring show is a never-ending cause for delight" List -

A new play by Richard Herring. American journalist EM Halliday visits the aged Russian Prince and conspirator in the murder of Rasputin, Felix Yusupov, improbably still alive in 1967. The former richest man in Russia, now reduced to making money from his tall tale, is haunted by the Mad Monk, who even 50 years on refuses to die. Will Yusupov finally reveal the truth? ‘I don't know of an instant in modern history where so many reputable as well as disreputable historians have solemnly repeated such a patently improbable story as if it were gospel’ (EM Halliday). You'll believe a monk can't die!
George Square Theatre 31st July-24th August at 15.35 (80 minutes)
