Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast
Richard Herring chats with some of the biggest names in comedy. It's ad-libbed and unedited and largely unplanned - the conversations can go off on all kinds of comedic tangents, or be serious. Recorded in front of a paying audience.
RHLSTP #81: Joe Lycett - A Fan Who's Won a Competition. It's the last show in Series 7 and there's an end of term atmosphere and a lot of good natured heckling from a slightly inebriated crowd. Richard's final guest is Peter Dickson impersonator and product of 1988, Joe Lycett. The podcast largely turns into the vehicle for a RHLSTP clips show as Joe quizzes Richard about his favourite and least favourite guests and what the future might hold for the valuable RHLSTP franchise. But there's also time to talk about identifying fish as they are slapped into your face, how much money Richard turned down to appear on TV with Katie Hopkins and the varying depravity of ex Blue Peter presenters. It's a fittingly low key and relaxed end to the series. Series 8 starts next week.
Buy tickets to see the show live or if you're more into AIOTM then donate a pound or more a month at gofasterstripe.com and hopefully we'll have enough to start making them in 2016. We're hoping to film Series 8 of RHLSTP, but we need your help. Rich tells you about some of the cool rewards you can receive for making small or big donations. Head here to donate: Kickstarter
