In his 12th solo stand-up show, Richard Herring examines whether we are can ever hope to be or are meant to be truly content. After years of drifting aimlessly and alone, Richard is now settled down with a wife and a tiny baby. Is he finally happy now? Or does responsibility for the lives of others come with its own terrors? Is there any system that will guarantee us eternal bliss or should we just embrace the fact that life is a vale of tears and our only option is to laugh in its face? These are the questions the comedian will muse over on Saturday 20 February in Richard Herring- Happy Now?
