Richard Herring's Meaning of LifeA monthly Sunday-night series of shows, each tackling one of life's big questions: Is there a God? What happens to us when we die? What is love, anyway? Why are we here? Is there really good and evil? As well as Richard Herring's own brand of intelligent, irreverent stand up, there'll be interviews with experts in each subject helping Herring uncover the meaning of life (though don't expect a conventional line of questioning). Each show will be filmed for subsequent broadcast by Herring alongside his already popular podcasts.


About Leicester Square Theatre

In 2002 this compact, 350 seater opened with Taboo, Boy George's musical trawl through Thatcher's 80s and his own turbulent career, a production that ran for well over a year. The Leicester Square Theatre seems to have succeeded in carving out a niche for itself amongst the many grand Edwardian playhouses and cavernous auditoriums of London's Theatreland.
