Edinburgh Previews: Richard Herring + Catie Wilkins

27th July 2011

Tonight’s Edinburgh Preview sees legendary Richard Herring and fast-rising Catie Wilkins take to our stage for an unmissable evening’s entertainment that will showcase the talent they will later bring to The Fringe this year. After initially establishing himself alongside Stewart Lee in the prolific comedy duo, Lee & Herring, Richard Herring enjoyed phenomenal cult success as a writer and performer with radio shows such as ‘Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World’ and ‘Fist of Fun’ (Radio One), which then went on to become the popular comedy BBC2 series of the same name. He went on to co-develop ‘This Morning’ with ‘Richard Not Judy’, a live comedy TV series for BBC2. At the Edinburgh Festival Richard has established himself as a leading playwright, penning and appearing in several critically acclaimed plays including ‘Punk’s Not Dead’, ‘Excavating Rita’ and ‘It’s Not The End Of The World.’
