Herring is taking his show on the road so he can tell the bits too libelous to broadcast.

Comedian Richard Herring is taking his podcast on the road so audiences can hear the pieces that he says are too libelous and controversial to be broadcast.

The show reaches Cambridge Corn Exchange on Friday, November 8. Herring's interview podcast is usually recorded at the Leicester Square Theatre in London's West End. He is known as a pioneer of the genre and now it's going on tour.

Now aged 52, his initial venture into comedy was as a duo with Stewart Lee (they met at Oxford).

Their act was called Lee and Herring.
