The Twelve Shows Of Richard Herring

The Twelve Shows Of Richard Herring: Episode 8

TSORH #8 - Something That Never Happened to Someone Who Didn't Exist. It's Show 7 of the 12 show run and the start of maybe the trickiest weekend, with two shows full of tricky monologues and packed with ideas, but up first perhaps the sweetest of the all Richard's shows (apart from the bit where he imagines wanking off sex offenders), The Headmaster's Son. It's an emotional show for him and seems to have become moreso over the last seven years and he feels the least prepared for this performance, so can it go off with a bang and without actual tears? Audiophiles can hear an interesting backstage conversation about mono, but for the non-perverted listenership there's plenty of background about the show and the performance whether the 'tiny hands' routine should have been included. As well as the power of undercutting comedy with something serious or emotional. Plus the first, mildly shaky minutes of the show - you can buy the first 10 performances on audio (or the DVDs of the original shows) at
