News: Richard Herring Kickstarter Campaign Approaches Halfway Stage

Richard Herring is currently raising money through Kickstarter to fund the filming of a new series of As It Occurs To Me. This was the stand-up/sketch show podcast which he previously performed between 2009 and 2011. All the material for each show was written in the week of broadcast, based on things that occurred to Richard, either events from his life or things he'd been thinking about. The cast back then included Dan Tetsell, Emma Kennedy and Christian Reilly.


Live Review: Richard Herring, Leicester Square Theatre

Richard Herring has been developing his new show, Happy Now? for a while. An embryonic version of it was performed last summer when he did all of his past shows in one epic run at the Leicester Square Theatre. So it’s interesting that the show isn't about quite what I initially thought it was going to be about. 


News: Pub Landlord, Richard Herring, Reg Hunter & More for Henley Festival

News: Richard Herring Tour Dates Announced

After years of drifting aimlessly and alone, Richard Herring is now settled with a wife and a tiny baby. Is he finally Happy Now? Or does responsibility for the lives of others come with its own terrors? In his twelfth solo stand up show, Herring examines whether we can ever hope to be or are meant to be truly content. If we were never unhappy would happiness have any meaning?


Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Richard Herring

Podcast pioneer, purveyor of plays, stand-up comedian. Richard Herring's work ethic is enviable. This year he became a father and decided not to do Edinburgh but did he take his foot off the gas? Hardly. Instead he did a run of 12 shows in London reviving his last eleven full-length shows and then adding a new one, Happy Now? on the end. After tackling men's tackle in Talking Cock, the Bible in Christ on a Bike, death in We’re All Going To Die!


Podcast Review: Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast with Bridget Christie

Richard Herring’s latest podcast comes complete with an elephant in the room. Unless I missed it his interview with Bridget Christie doesn’t contain any mention of her “fictional husband”, aka Herring’s comedy partner Stewart Lee. 

This felt like a strange unexplained – as I said, unless I missed it – omission. If anyone is in a position to discuss Christie’s relationship with Lee and do a bit of a compare-and-contrast it is Herring.


News: New Kickstarter Campaign From Richard Herring

Richard Herring has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to help to pay for the filming of the eighth series of Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcasts.

There will be up to 20 episodes in this series, which is more than before, so he is now trying to raise £50,000 by September 12. Last time just over 1000 people raised over £30,000. Guests in Series 7 have included Johnny Vegas, Robert Webb, Louis Theroux and Robin Ince.  


Podcast Review: Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast with Bob Mortimer

Richard Herring’s new series of podcasts kicks off with an illuminating chat with Bob Mortimer. This time round Herring has had funding from a Kickstarter campaign but don't panic, apart from a plug for his sponsor (hello Duncan Thorley of Maximum Whimsy) at the start and a few namechecks at the end it doesn’t feel remotely like a corporate sell-out.

Live Review: Richard Herring, Bloomsbury Theatre

After tackling sex, death, religion and other similarly heavy subjects Richard Herring’s latest show has a more frivolous feel to it. Lord of the Dance Settee is a celebration of the daftness of life and how, through the smallest of incidents, we cannot help but be interconnected with each other.

What it does have in common with previous sets is Herring’s tendency towards verbosity. Like Stephen Fry, but with a more puerile streak, Herring will never use a short story when a long one can be plucked out of the air. 


News: Richard Herring Confirms Epic London Run
