Richard Herring and Stephen Fry

Richard Herring Leicester Square Theatre Podcast: Stephen Fry


The Richard Herring Leicester Square Theatre podcasts are fascinating and fun, not because of the silly recurring questions (‘Have you ever tried to suck your own cock?’ and ‘What would you rather have: a ham hand or an armpit that produced sun cream?’) or Herring’s shabby interview technique, but due to the atmosphere that leads to the interviewee opening up and…

Theatre: As It Occurs To Me Season 2 Episode 8


Richard Herring‘s As It Occurs To Me (shortened to AIOTM) is an impressive undertaking: Herring writes an entirely new 60-minute sketch show each week, rehearses it with the cast (Emma Kennedy, Dan Tetsell and Christian Reilly on guitar) twice on the day and they perform it live on Monday night, which is recorded and released as a free unedited podcast…

However, I do make the…

Collins and Herring Looking Good


I’ve been listening to the Collings and Herrin podcast since its beginning – I’ve been reading the blogs of Andrew Collins and Richard Herring (the name of the podcast is a deliberate joke on their part) for a while now as well – and enjoying their unedited chat, which seems to hark back to their days when Collins used to…

Podcast People


Coming to the trendy things fashionably late, I have been listening to lot of podcasts recently. And I thought I’d chat about some of them. It started with Smodcast – the fairly regular podcast from Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier (hence the name), who chat about … stuff. It started out as a way for two old friends to spend…
