Live Review: Richard Herring, Queen Elizabeth Hall, SE1

A decade ago Richard Herring dissected middle age with Oh Fuck I'm 40. The sequel finds him in a different place with Oh Frig I'm 50. Back then it was a wild life of drinking, partying and one-night-stands of both the gigging and sexual variety. Times have changed. He is no longer a drunken, libidinous fool, more just a fool with a wife and two children. This prestigious gig, being filmed for DVD release, was a different kind of one night stand, probably the biggest gig of his career.
