Time Out says

The veteran comic and podcast host returns with his first new show in six years

You used to be able to set you clock by the the advent of a new Richard Herring live show: there would be one per year, every year, and he would take it to the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, though, it’s been a walloping six years since Herring has created one of his pedantic, surreal, invariably high concept offerings – in large part because after spending decades in the shadow of his former comedy partner Stewart Lee, he’s finally found something like mainsteam success with his Live from Leicester Square Theatre podcast series. 

Now he returns to frontline service with a show about his 2021 brush with testicular cancer, which resulted in the removal of a the titular ball.
