The Moustache 04 Sep 2009
Richard Herring
Suave, Wing Commander, Bounder or Porn Star?

What does a moustache say about a man? Richard Herring grew a ‘Hitler moustache’ for his comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, but was sneered at by the public in the street. Would it ever be possible to rehabilitate the 'toothbrush moustache' - or indeed any moustache? Or are they too out of date? Would Erroll Flyn and Clarke Gable still be seen as dishy today? Or are moustaches forever associated with Jason King, Jimmy Edwards and Porn stars? Woman’s Hour speaks to Richard Herring, comedian and to Jodie Harrison, Grooming Editor at GQ Magazine.
