About New BBC Comedy Programme: Bad Language

We all speak English, but do we understand each other? That’s the question posed by Richard Herring in a brand new comedy panel show for BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Ulster. Scotland’s Des Clarke and Ireland’s Keith Farnan go head to head to prove who has the superior command of the English language.

Together with special guests, they compete over five rounds to see who best understands dialect, slang and colloquialisms from Scotland, Ireland and the rest of the English speaking world. Through comedy debate and banter we’ll be celebrating language, inventing new terms for those currently-nameless-but-irritating things. And who knows, you might pick up some surprising facts along the way!

We’ll be recording two shows per night – on Tuesday 4th June, Wednesday 5th June and Friday 7th June – at 7pm and 8.30pm. This event will be seated on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to arrive early to avoid disappointment!

Somerset comedian Richard Herring is well known from his double act with Stewart Lee, his solo tours and his radio shows with Andrew Collins. And if you’ve just caught him in repeats of "Never Mind The Buzzcocks" or "Have I Got News For You" on Dave, then why not come and see him host “Bad Language”?

“Comedian-wise, I think Richard Herring is a god...” – so said Keith Keith Farnan, the Irish lawyer-turned-comedian, in a recent interview. He’s appeared on “Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow” and “Dave’s One Night Stand”, as well as performing all over the world.

In charge of the opposing teams is an equally well-travelled Scottish stand-up and Capitol Radio presenter, Des Clarke. He has appearances at the New York, Adelaide, Dublin and Dubai Comedy Festivals under his belt. He was also the presenter of “SM:TV” when Ant and Dec left...
