RHLSTP #130: Jess Thom - Biscuit. Rich meets some people who have never tried sushi before introducing Tourettes Superhero (though that's a secret) Jess Thom. It's a battle to see who will say the most inappropriate thing, but for once Richard is given a run for his money as the pair discuss the facts about Tourettes, the positive effects in terms of creativity, the gatekeeper of the brain and what it's like to be able to inadvertently create brilliant emergency questions. Plus discussion of the new Leicester Square Theatre Stair Robot (which is a real thing, though in this conversation it is sometimes tricky to tell fact from fiction), why not-yet-disabled people are so idiotic and self-defeating when it comes to access and equal rights in general and who it is who needs to a magic drug to cure them. It's a fascinating and hilarious chat with some of the best emergency question answers you are ever going to hear. For Jess' tour dates, amazing questions and brilliant non-sequiturs and according to her much much more head to touretteshero.com. Check out Richard's tour dates at richardherring.com
