Richard Herring: What is Love Anyway?
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Does anybody love anybody anyway? So asked insane Welsh poet philosopher Howard Jones in 1983. Finally someone dares to answer. Having sorted out religion (Christ on a Bike), politics (Hitler Moustache) and penises (Talking Cock), the star of the award winning podcast As it Occurs to Me and Radio 4’s Richard Herring’s Objective seeks to define and destroy love. Before love destroys him. Again. Does Richard’s dry-cleaner genuinely love him? How could a romantic gesture involving Ferrero Rochers get dangerously out of control? Herring’s twentieth Fringe. ‘Stimulating and exhilarating. Utterly hilarious’ ★★★★★ (Chortle.co.uk).
