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?

Published: 15th October 2021.   Length: 64 mins.   Size: 30mb

A surprise guest leads to an impromptu promo for Twitch Of Fun and I think you will all be able to tell who the funny one is in the family. It's a very weary Twitch Of Fun tonight, that nearly didn't happen, but Richard couldn't bear to think of all those excited grown adults celebrating their birthdays not getting their donkey kicks. We're asked to imagine a lot in this episode which is insensitive given everyone involved suffers from aphantasia, but there's some questions asked by Prince Andrew that we should all be asking and a question asked that isn'e even a question. Plus deadly sprinkles, not panicking, overthrow of the political system and what the Queen wants to eat with every meal. Sit on it, you malodorous ragamuffins.
