Richard Herring October/November news

Hello all of you
I've just got back from a lovely holiday in Tanzania and just settling down to get back to work again. So I thought I'd let you know what I am up to in case you want to participate in a spectatory fashion.

GIGS - check for full details (at the moment some of it is a bit sketchy so have another look nearer the time)

25th October MANCHESTER menage a un at the Frog and Bucket - selling well. Please book asap
30th October ANGEL - Fortnight Club - five minutes or so of new material.
4th November HAMPSTEAD - stand up at the Hampstead Comedy Club
5th November GREENWICH - stand up at Up The Creek
8th November CANTERBURY - stand up at the Chuckle Shack
10th November PALMER's GREEN - stand up at the Fox
13th November ANGEL - Fortnight club
17th November TOTTON - don't know where this is or whether it's stand up or menage a un. Let me know if you know
18th November CHELTENHAM - stand up gig somewhere. Again the details are hazy this end at the moment
19th November LEICESTER - stand up gig at Bottle Rocket Comedy
21st November HIGH WYCOMBE - stand up at the college student union
23rd November BRIGHTON - fairly sure this is a mistake in my diary. It was this that partly made me mess up earlier this month with the Festival as I thought this was the Festival gig. But it isn't. And I don't think it's happening. Let me know if you know different.
24th November CRANFORD - extended stand up set
25th November EALING and CHISWICK - two stand up gigs at Ha Bloody Ha and Headliners
27th November CHELTENHAM - menage a un at Cheltenham Town Hall.

Plans are already going well for a proper menage a un tour in April and May of next year. I have 21 dates booked in so far ranging from Aberdeen to Paris. If anyone is interested in booking the show or knows a club or a theatre that might be interested then please get in touch at

Banter is currently broadcasting on Wednesdays night at 6.30pm on Radio 4
I will be back on the Andrew Collings Show on 6Music on Sunday at around 3pm

November sees the 4th anniversary of the beginning of Warming Up. So far I have yet to miss a day of writing. Is this a sign of success or failure? Only you can decide. To celebrate this momentous happening I will be running a competition throughout the month of November on the Warming Up pages. Every day for that month I will ask a quiz question - at the end of the month I will invite you to email me with the 30 answers. Those with the most correct will be entered into a draw where they will be up to win some fabulous prizes and also some old crap that's clogging up my office.
First prize is pretty good though. It is a brand new Sony PSP with a 1GB memory card (or something like that) which I was given because the PSP sponsored my Edinburgh show. I've already got one and it's great, so I have this spare one to give away to one lucky reader. There will be some other stuff as well for other people.
So remember to read every day of Warming Up next month if you want to be in with a chance of winning this excellent prize.
Please spread the word of this competition to anyone you think might be interested.

I hope to see you at one of the above gigs
If you want to email don't just reply to this email (at least three of you always do) but instead use the email address
Thanks very much
Richard Herring
