Richard Herring Talking Cock: The Second Coming, Underbelly Bristo Square, 8.15pm, ★★★★☆
Go into Richard Herrings slightly updated version of his 2002 hit expecting an hour of knob-gags and youll be both pleased and disappointed. Yes, there are plenty some brilliant, some terrible but theres much more to Talking Cock than an ejaculation (sorry) of penis jokes. Herring describes the show as mans answer to the Vagina Monologues: hes set two anonymous questionnaires online one for men, one for women with the aim of discovering our true opinions of the spam javelin. Cock facts and statistics are mixed with slick pieces of sarky stand-up as Herring reveals the results of his survey and some of the most bizarre answers hes received. Many of the silent worries men have about their wangs are openly discussed, but it wouldnt be Herrings place to give definitive answers on issues like the size debate or whether men think with their dicks this is simply a celebration of the penis, with Herrings major message being to keep it clean, unlike this show See Richard Herring in London at the Bloomsbury Theatre, Apr 12-13 2012.
