Fans of stand-up comedy will be pleased to hear that Stafford Gatehouse Theatre have lined up yet another top act to perform live later this year, with legendary comedian Richard Herring set to bring his ‘The Best’ show to the county town in April.


Richard Herring, King of the Edinburgh Fringe, Metro columnist and the UK's Podfather (RHLSTP, AIOTM) picks his favourite routines from his 12 one-man shows and crams them into 90 minutes for your delectation.


From his deconstruction of the genealogy of Christ to him proving that racists are less racist than liberals, via some of the best knob jokes in the business. Will your favourite routine make the cut? This show really does have everything – a great introduction to this influential cult comedian for the newcomer, and a welcome journey through the greatest hits for long term fans.
