Comedian Richard Herring will visit Chorley Little Theatre for the sixth time on Sunday with his new show, Lord Of The Dance Settee.

He has previously explored the weighty issues of Hitler’s moustache, Jesus, love and death, but this show sees Rich in more frivolous mood with musings about being uncool and bouncing joyously on a sofa.

He looks at the ability of a sombrero to eradicate all sadness and how his whole career is a failed attempt to top a slapstick joke he made in his teens.

Herring is a comedy veteran, having played the Edinburgh Fringe 21 times.

He is known for his hit television shows with Stewart Lee as well as award-winning podcasts and regular appearances on BBC Radio Four.

Packed full of gags, nostalgia and a few surprises, this show won praise at last year’s Fringe and has been extended to 90 minutes.

Tickets cost £15 and are available from Malcolm’s Musicland, on Chapel Street, Chorley, by calling 01257 264362.
