As It Occurs To Me ( AIOTM) was a revolutionary stand-up and sketch show podcast written and performed by Richard Herring at the Leicester Square Theatre and Bloomsbury Theatre between 2009 and 2011. All the material for each show was brand new and written on the week of broadcast, based on things that occurred to Richard, either events from his life or things he'd been thinking about. Richard was joined on stage by Dan Tetsell, Emma Kennedy and Christian Reilly; and the show was produced by Ben Walker. After a 5 year break, AIOTM is now back!

AIOTM Audio Extra 2: Richard's usual plan to write
AIOTM at the last minute very nearly comes unstuck, when he is betrayed by the thing that he loves. But somehow he pulls it out the pan (in both senses) and constructs a topical bonus podcast (that is not the same show that you Kickstarted - that will be out in 2017) looking into what happens if you follow the Trump ideal of locker room talk, if it's possible to get away with imaginary murder, and looks at some of the most useless logical reasoning known to man from the Brexit camp on Twitter. Rich also recounts a bizarre coincidence involving Jason Manford (pictured), plus there's a song from Christian Reilly and a catch up of what Dan and Emma have been up to. Given the circumstances it's almost impressive. Previous Episodes
