The latest episode of the Talking Cock podcast is here - http://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts/richard_herring_talking_cock/episode_9/
The first bit of amazing news is that the Leicester Square Theatre Podcast has been nominated for the prestigious Sony Radio Award for Comedy. It is (I believe) the first podcast to get the nod in this category, so it's massive.
And the series is returning. There's a one-off special at the Machynlleth Festival on 4th May where I will be interviewing Pappys. You can buy tickets here - http://www.tickettailor.com/checkout/view-event/id/7894/chk/2a5b
But it will be up on the British Comedy Guide and iTunes for free as usual.
And there's a full series starting on May 27th where my guest will be Chris Addison. I don't have any other names confirmed as yet, but there are some very exciting people pencilled in. You can buy tickets here - http://tinyurl.com/czczupc
The podcast will be free, but this time we are also planning to film the series and offer them as paid downloads either as individual episodes of a season pass (and we'll probably put them on DVD too). It would be massively helpful if you could support this endeavour by paying for at least one download, but you don't have to.
If this works out I might be doing a monthly filmed stand-up show (of new material) that people can pay to download. We'll see.
Hear our "Best of" entry for the Sony Award here - http://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts/richard_herring_lst_podcast/sony_extra/
I will be appearing at the Pleasance Beyond at 8pm every night with my new stand-up show, "We're All Going To Die!" See the latest draft of the poster here - http://www.richardherring.com/archive/downloads.php?2762952
(a couple of mistakes in it)
I will be previewing throughout June and July, mainly in London but also including gigs in Stockton, Newcastle, Bristol, Brighton, Chippenham, Peterborough and Falkirk, but will have details of those in the next newsletter.
And I will be at Stand One with a third run of the Edinburgh Fringe Podcasts at 13.55 every day (not 12th). I have no confirmed guests as yet, but I am sure to get the biggest Fringe stars and I know that both Sarah Millican and Susan Calman are keen to return for starters! Buy your tickets now - http://www.thestand.co.uk/Fringe/Performance/Stand1/1018/Richard-Herrings-Edinburgh-Fringe-Podcast
- as always these will all be released as free podcasts. But it's even better live and there are prizes!
You can get your name in the programme of "We're All Going To Die!" and help raise money for Scope by donating at least £15 (the more you give the bigger your name will appear) at http://www.justgiving.com/wereallgoingtodie
The last date to donate is May 17th. After that it will be too late as the programme will be at the printers.
If you email me your address I will send you a signed limited edition of the programme as a thank you for your support. Whatever name you put in the box on the justgiving website will be the name that appears in the programme.
Thank you so much to those of you who have already donated.
