As It Occurs To Me

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 Audio Extra 1: Ram-Packed. After 5 years apart, the AIOTM team are reunited and it's like they've never been away. As well as recording the kickstarted video episode of the show (which will be released in 2017) the whacky funsters put together this bonus, topical audio podcast, created under the ridiculous last minute structure of the original series. This is NOT what you paid your kickstarter money for. This one (given we were in the theatre anyway) cost us NOTHING. And it sounds like it. Topics under discussion include Keiths, headphone jacks and poor-taste 9/11 tributes. Christian rallies behind Donald Trump in song and Richard provides his own contribution to the BBC Sitcom celebration. I mean who wants to see old comedy formats put back together years after they passed their sell-by date...? And find out what kind of umpkins the cool kids are interested in in futuristic 2016.
