Richard Herring: Ally and Herring's Twitch of Fun

Richard Herring: Ally and Herring's Twitch of Fun

Richard Herring teams up with an 128 year old, 'handsy', ventriloquist doll made by his great-grandad to review the day's newspapers in an attempt to put to rest the ghosts of old and failed double acts he's been in. It's a format that I am sure you've seen before, but hopefully we can give it a fresh spin. Unprepared and unrehearsed, Ally and Herring have no idea what the other one is about to say and as long as the offensive stuff is said by the dummy then no one can touch us. But which one's the dummy?

Download episode

Published: 23rd October 2020.   Length: 80 mins.   Size: 37.4mb

Ally is worried about Prince Andrew moving in on his territory (but can't predict how far he might take that) and tries to take control of the show. The ghost child is back with a character that is (to be frank) as good as anything else in this weird experience. There's love, there's singing, there's beer and there's efficient and sexy politicians who don't seem to be evil. Richard and Ally keep getting their roles confused and everyone has to bail so we can watch Taskmaster. But all your favourites make an appearance and it's not all embarrassing and awful.

Richard hates to talk about all the amazing work he does for charity, so let me do it for him.
