Essential comedy: Richard Herring at CQAF

Comedian Richard Herring brings his 'greatest hits' show The Best to Belfast tomorrow

ARE you a fan of comedian Richard Herring who hasn't yet bothered to attend one of his acclaimed live shows? Or perhaps you have seen them all and just fancy revisiting the funniest bits in one big binge of whimsical lunacy?

Well, in either case, you're in luck: tellingly titled The Best, Herring's latest stand-up tour is made up of the funnyman's favourite bits from every tour he's ever done, all neatly repackaged into one value for money live set.

In typically self-deprecating style, he describes The Best as "the least worst stuff" from his 12 one-man shows, so expect to hear specially chosen selections from We're All Going To Die, Hitler Moustache, Christ on A Bike: The Second Coming, Richard Herring Is Fat and the rest.

If you only ever see Richard Herring the once, The Best will probably be hard to beat.
