Richard Herring - September News

Hey everyone

Edinburgh is done and dusted and in terms of reviews and tickets sales I think it has to be my most successful yet. Thanks to all those of you who made it along. Especially if you donated to SCOPE. We raised an amazing £4600 in the month!
I also won the if.comedy panel prize. Along with all the other comedians on the Fringe, but I have to take my few accolades where I can.
I will be touring the show in the Spring, I expect and there will no doubt be a London run too. There are a few gigs round the country next month. See below.

See for details. If they're not there yet they should be as soon as I have them. Or try Google!

You can still buy DVDs of "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules Terrace", "Someone Likes Yoghurt" and "menage a un" from the guys at
They are also selling original posters from some of my Edinburgh shows and tours, including a limited run of posters of "The Headmaster's Son". Posters are £5 each or £10 for three (including p&p - delivered in nice protective tubes). Get them while you can. Once they're gone, they're gone!
The DVD of "Oh Flip, I'm 40" is in production now. It's going to be a double disc with some really brilliant extras including an exclusive Collings and Herrin videocast, a documentary about my Liverpool fight and much much more. It will be out in a couple of months with a bit of luck. I will certainly let you know about it!
We're also working on a book of the first six months of Warming Up, plus very honest behind the scenes stories, too personal for the internet!

The Collings and Herrin Podcast continues onwards. We recorded number 27 last week. The next one will be out on Friday. We seem to be getting a lot of interest, so enjoy it now while it is lo fi and almost unlistenable to. They're all available at
Or subscribe via iTunes.

I have just completed a guide to writing comedy which should be given away free in the Guardian at some point in the next month or so. Keep your eyes peeled!

I have been commissioned to write a book about my immaturity called "The Milky Bar Kidult" for Ebury. It will not be out for a year or so. I have written 0 pages so far.

I will keep you updated as always with any other exciting developments. Thanks for your continued support. Things definitely seem to be moving in the right direction!
