Comedian Richard Herring’s new show, which heads to the The Castle theatre in Wellingborough next week, has been dubbed ‘man’s answer to The Vagina Monologues’.
Richard’s adult show, which takes place on Wednesday at 8pm, is called Talking C**k. A spokesperson said: “It’s an object of shame and pride, it can inspire laughter and fear, its a symbol of power, yet it’s incredibly fragile and weak, it can be a pound of flesh or an ounce of winkles, it can be used to express both love and hate, it creates life, it can condemn us to death... and it can do wees as well.
“How can one tiny flap of sponge and sinew be all these things?
“Though men may brag and exaggerate about their little chap, they rarely talk honestly about it or their insecurities. Whilst women celebrate their sexuality in worldwide smash The Vagina Monologues, men are twisting their genitals into the shape of hamburgers in Puppetry of the Penis. Isn’t it time for a Vagina Monologue with balls?”
Using research, Richard uses his show to explore more about the sensitive truth of men’s secret fears. Tickets cost £15. Call 01933 270007 for info or visit www. thecastle.org.uk
