I am doing lots of Christ on a Bike previews. Mostly in London, but also in Manchester, Bristol, Newbury, Didcot, Tring, Maidenhead, Newcastle and Scarborough. All details of these gigs and other info on the show can be found
If you can't make these or Edinburgh, I will be doing a long run of the show at the Leicester Square Theatre in London from December 19th -
And will then be doing a major UK tour.

The second series has been motoring along and the feedback so far is very good. But there are still four shows to go, so please come down and support it live if you can.
It's at the Leicester Square Theatre on June 14th and 21st
Tickets -
And then moving to the Bloomsbury Theatre on June 28th and July 5th

As well as the Edinburgh extra show there will be at least two shows in the autumn, also at the Bloomsbury on October 11th and November 1st.

You can of course listen to the show free by subscribing via iTunes or downloading at

You can buy exclusive AIOTM T-shirts (and some more designs should be coming soon) at

The original and best podcast continues on a weekly basis and you can subscribe via iTunes or the British Comedy Guide -
As well as the Edinburgh live shows we are doing another London one on 27th September at the Bloomsbury - Book Now as we quickly sold out last time - - if this goes well we may well try and put more live gigs in and are hoping to return to Cardiff in November to do another live show and record more exclusive podcasts for a CD called "War and Peace: Crime and Punishment."
If you haven't done so already you can buy our first Collings and Herrin CD "The Best of Earth, Wind and Fire* (*and water)" at Go Faster Stripe -

We are also continuing our Collins and Herring tenure at 6Music until at least the end of July. We're on Saturday mornings at 10am, but you can download a podcast from iTunes or listen again on iPlayer - details here -

And you can buy Collings and Herrin T shirts here -

The book has been selling steadily and the book readings have been fun. There are a few more live book events at Dartington, Latitude and Edinburgh. Details of those, plus reviews, plus video clips, plus details of how to get short audio extracts are here -

You can buy the book from loads of places, but Amazon might be the cheapest -

Thanks for your many kind messages about this book. Please spread the word. If it does well I might be allowed to write another one.

I have been commissioned to write and perform a new 4 part Radio 4 series about reclaiming contentious symbols and things (provisionally called "Richard Herring Objects" which we will be recording in September and October and which should be on air in November) I will give you details of how to come to the recordings as soon as I know.

We are just putting together the final cut of the Hitler Moustache DVD which will be released by PIAS in October. It will be in the shops and everything. But please buy it from Go Faster Stripe where you will also be able to purchase an exclusive bonus disc including another Collings and Herrin video podcast as well as a documentaries about my stolen phone and my visit to York City football club, a rundown of the interminably boring tour, a look at my threadbare stage costume, a discussion about the Guardian controversy and much more besides. I will give you more details nearer the time.
As with all my previous DVDS, posters and other book you'll be able to get all this at

There is one more show left in the season on 27th June with an incredible line up of Stewart Lee, Peter Serafinowicz, Freeze (Tom Basden and Tim Key) and Bridget Christie. Unfortunately Noel Fielding had to pull out due to other commitments. If you bought tickets wanting to see him then you can return them and get a refund. Although the show is sold out there is thus a possibility of returns so keep an eye on or ring 0871 22 117 29 and you can get your name put on a reserve list for returns. It's going to be an incredible end to the season and hopefully we'll be back to do more in the autumn.

I am going to be a guest on the next series of Genius and am also recording an episode of a world cup based quiz show for Radio 4 next week. Not sure when these will broadcast, but keep an eye open for them. I am also doing a comedy gig and a reading at Latitude and there are a few other stand up gigs including one at the Wimbledon festival which you can find out about here -
You can follow me on Twitter as Herring1967
I have closed down my Facebook page as it had got full, but there is a Fan Page that you can join here -
My blog Warming Up is still tootling along under all this at

I think that that is enough to be getting on with at the moment. Having written it all down I am slightly overwhelmed by this workload!

Thanks for supporting me. I am most grateful for your part in helping me to keep as many projects on the go.

Have a terrific summer
