The set then travels to Manchester, Leamington Spa, Brighton, Sheffield, Cheltenham, Leicester, Cambridge, Colchester, Aldershot, Bristol, Birmingham, Didcot, Hull, Cardiff, Leeds, Salford, Chorley, Glasgow and Newcastle, before ending at April 2, 2014 at The Walker Theatre in Shrewsbury.

Full show details are available here.

Herring said: "I am fascinated by any subject which people are reluctant to discuss openly or think we shouldn't joke about.

"Death is one of the few universal experiences for every human being and yet it's one that is shrouded in euphemism, mystery and terrified awe."



He added: "Why shouldn't we discuss and laugh about this inevitability while we still can, if only to prepare ourselves for its devastating effects?

"I hope to show the humorous side of this subject whilst making people think about their attitudes towards it."

Prior to its national run, We're All Going to Die! plays at the Pleasance Beyond from July 31 to August 25 at 8pm as part of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Herring announced last month that instead of spending £3,000 on advertising for his Edinburgh show, he has instead created free 90-minute 'Greatest Hits' DVD 10 that will be given to people who buy tickets for his festival performance.
