Richard Herring - Talking Cock

Visiting Company


It’s an object of shame and pride; it inspires laughter and fear; it’s a symbol of power, yet it’s incredibly fragile; 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. Part of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.

How can one tiny flap of sponge and sinew be all these things?

Richard Herring intends to find out in this tenth anniversary update of the critically acclaimed show that exposes the truth about men and their flutes of love.

Sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe 2002 and Melbourne Comedy Festival 2003, translated and performed in over a dozen European countries, published as a book by Ebury press.

“Man’s answer to the Vagina Monologues.”

“An impassioned and thoughtful disquisition on masculinity, cultural identity and sexual anthropology… but there are still loads of jokes about porridge guns.”

“His Cock is as funny and fascinating for women as it is for men. I loved it. I only wished it could have been longer .”
