Hello, nice and sunny isn't it? Hope you have a wonderful bank holiday weekend.
Here's the stuff that I will be doing over the next month or so.
Screw the Queen, how many Fringe shows has she done? ZERO!
2012 is my Silver Jubilee year at the Edinburgh Fringe and I will be performing in two shows.
My stand up show will be "Talking C*ck: The Second Coming" at the Udderbelly in Bristo Square on 1st-26th August at 8.15pm. Tickets https://www.underbelly.co.uk/richard-herring-edinburgh
. View the poster here - http://www.richardherring.com/archive/downloads.php?s=&p=444&f=1304
Book ahead for this, especially if you want to see one of the cheaper previews or the weekend shows.
I will be doing more Edinburgh Fringe Podcasts at Stand One in the afternoon with big name Fringe guests and future stars. No details on what guests will be appearing on which days, but they'll all be ace so take a punt
Dates and prices are
Preview Aug 2 16:10 (1hr) £9.00(£8.00) Aug 3-12,14-27 14:15 (1hr) £10.00(£9.00)

TALKING C*CK TOUR
If you can't make the Fringe then there is a chance to catch the show in preview (see below), but there's another big tour coming up in the autumn and spring. Details will soon be up on the website, but keep an eye out at your local theatre if you want to get your tickets early - some places are already on sale.
RICHARD HERRING'S LEICESTER SQUARE THEATRE PODCAST
I have recorded five podcasts so far (Tim Minchin, Jonathan Ross, Francesca Martinez, Charlie Higson and Charlie Brooker) which you can listen to for FREE (links below), but if you can come along and see it it's even more fun. It's only £12.50 and there will be chances to interact, prizes and extra content not broadcast online -
The remaining dates and guests are as follows - you might be able to get returns for sold out gigs - check with theatre
11th June Nick Frost and David Baddiel
18th June Stewart Lee (SOLD OUT)
25th June Graham Linehan and Armando Iannucci (SOLD OUT)
You can book tickets here - http://leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/126524253/events
But if you can't make it then you can listen to them for free at the British Comedy Guide - http://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts/richard_herring_lst_podcast/
Or subscribe on iTunes - http://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/richard-herrings-leicester/id520831548
OTHER PODCASTS and stuff
The Warming Up podcast is still ongoing (on iTunes and soundcloud) and I will be recording more Me1 vs Me2 snooker podcasts as soon as I am back in my home (it's being renovated at the moment).
You can also subscribe to the written version of Warming Up on your Kindle and there's an ebook of the first volume of Warming Up, Bye Bye Balham there too. Just search in your amazon store!
DAVE'S ONE NIGHT STAND
I will be appearing on this show, recorded at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on 16th July - I suspect you can get free tickets somewhere - try the Dave website I guess!
TALKING C*CK - The book
Chris Evans (not that one) has taken another massive punt with his hard-earned money to print up 3000 copies of the 2003 book "Talking C*ck". There's loads of stuff that isn't in the show and pretty much everything you could ever want to know about the penis - Buy it exclusively here - http://www.gofasterstripe.com/cgi-bin/website.cgi?page=videofull&id=14048
Ebury may be bringing this out as an ebook at some point, but they will get all the money for that, so go old school and buy it from Chris Evans who will use your money to make more stupid comedians' DVDS.
GO FASTER STRIPE DOWNLOADS
Chris Evans (not that one) has started to release some of my and other comedians shows as downloads at really cheap prices. So far you can get The Twelve Tasks of Hercules Terrace, Someone Likes Yoghurt and menage a un. http://www.gofasterstripe.com/cgi-bin/website.cgi?page=downloads
My weekly column for the Metro continues. You can read them here - http://www.metro.co.uk/explore/topic/lifestyle/features/richard_herring_column
TALKING C*CK QUESTIONNAIRE
For my forthcoming Edinburgh show and answer to the Va-gina Monologues I am setting up another anonymous pen-is based questionnaire - there are questions for men and for women and the more people who take part the better - so let me know your answers and spread the word
The men's questionnaire is here - http://www.richardherring.com/talkingcock2/questionnaire/male
The women's questionnaire is here - http://www.richardherring.com/talkingcock2/questionnaire/female
TALKING C*CK PROGRAMME
Thanks to the very generous people who have already donated money in return for getting their name in the charity programme. If you donate at least £15 (the more you give, the bigger your name) before June 7th, you can join them, then email me your address and you'll be sent a limited edition signed programme as soon as they are ready (and I have time to make them). http://www.justgiving.com/talkingcock
The more you give the bigger your name will appear and the top donor will get some special prizes (you can hide the amount you donate if you want to be sneaky and defeat your rivals - it will appear in the programme only).
If you know a business that would like to advertise in the programme then please tell them to get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org for very reasonable rates. The money goes to SCOPE.
