Richard Herring

The Headmaster's Son

gfs-19So who's fault is it that Rich turned out the way he did?

In The Headmaster's Son, a nostalgic and faintly disturbing juvenile romp through the 1980s, Richard Herring considers what could possibly be worse than being a podgy, swotty, virginal schoolboy. What if your dad's the headmaster too?

Here's Rich's show, captured over two discs at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol, and on location at Rich's parent's house in Cheddar.
