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 at all kinds of comedic tangents, or be serious. Recorded in front of a paying audience.
RHLSTP won a Bronze award at the Sony Radio Academy Awards - congratulations to Richard, producer Ben and the rest of the production team! A new series of the show will be recorded from the end of May, with guests including Chris Addision and Stephen Fry. This new series will be filmed, as Richard explains in this video trailer
RHLSTP (BATMCF) Special! - it's like the Leicester Square Theatre Podcast but it's at the Machynlleth Comedy Festival in Wales and is at the packed Y Tabernacle. It's the first podcast since the show was nominated for a prestigious Sony so the pressure is on to keep the fellatio and bumming jokes to the highest standard. And the guests are rising stars and rival non-Sony award nominated podcasters Pappy's (all they've got is a new TV series, the losers). There's plenty of charity human centipede fun to be had with Huge Ackman, bleeding heads, Animal Antics, public nudity and the ham hand question is nearly destroyed, but becomes stronger. There's a half-hearted attempt to put a shrek in it which shows that boat has sailed and too much self-pity. But it doesn't matter, it's not a proper London one!
