Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast
Richard Herring - The Podfather (The Guardian), reluctant 'King of Edinburgh' and two time and only Chortle Internet Award winner - brings his Edinburgh Fringe Podcast south for a more leisurely weekly show in which he 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. The new series has now started. You can listen to the audio for free as usual here, or come along to the Leicester Square Theatre and be part of the audience, or download a video of the evening from gofasterstripe.com for a small fee (toward the expense of filming).
RHLSTP #20 - John Lloyd - It's Not Personal. Richard continues with his mission to get to be a guest on QI with top TV producer John Lloyd, though Lloyd seems intent on demonstrating why Herring is too thick to get on the programme with increasingly difficult questions about how many chemicals there are in a carrot, how to define art and if God wears sandals. Or something. It gets brain-hurtingly deep and philosophical as both men attempt to discover the meaning of life. Plus there's some great behind the scenes stories from Not The Nine O'Clock News and Blackadder Goes Forth, Doctor Snuggles and the world of advertising. Does everything happen for a reason? Why does Richard Dawkins waste his time retweeting praise? Where else could you hear a quite clever man being bamboozled by a very clever man, before asking him if he'd prefer a ham hand or a suncream armpit? Nowhere.
