News: Richard Herring Kickstarter Campaign Approaches Halfway Stage

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.

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.
