As It Occurs To Me. Richard Herring

As It Occurs To Me

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 Video Series #6 - Repo Mann. It's the final episode of the series and there's a hostage situation to resolve. I expect they will manage that. And, if they do, then you can will get to see the first kniforkoon off the production line, the true story of the Song of Sixpence and how Richard's obsession with toaster robots resolves. Christian bids a final (surely) farewell to the AIOTM franchise, Emma recounts the tale of a woman who pooed herself in front of a delivery driver and Dan Tetsell shows a surprising knowledge of the intricacies of time travel. Plus introducing exciting new acting talent Ross Mann. Here's his Spotlight Page. Employ him in any way you see fit. Plus stories of the magical town of Fleet, creepy Uncle's Pawnbroker and the dangers of mispronouncing the names of popular spreads. And find out what becomes of the romance betwixt Rich and Aberham Lincoln. It may have repercussions.

You can see longer episodes of all the shows in this series, with a good 20 mins of extra material in each show (including, in show 6, a delightful accent-off between Rich and Ross Mann that might be the funniest thing in the whole series). You can either become a monthly badger and view the episodes (as well as all the existing and future backstage interviews from RHLSTP) at or get an AIOTM series pass (including all six long episodes, bloopers, cut scenes, interviews and more) at (where you can also purchase a selection of t-shirts, DVDs or a tea towel).

Thank God it's over. Now let's never do anything as stupid as this again.
