Richard Herring- October News

Hello all
Here's what I am up to in October -

We're doing three more AIOTMs (AIOTMs) this year. They will as usual be put up on iTunes and the British Comedy Guide for free, but you get to see a whole lot more if you come and see them live (including an exclusive stand up set which won't be going on line). Plus if we sell enough tickets it means we can do some more. So your support is the life-blood of this project, but I also think it's a pretty good night out, if you're in town. Alas it isn't practical to tour these shows, due to the way it's written at the last minute and the fact that there is a cast and a producer to transport and accommodate. So it's only for London (and of course Edinburgh that one time) for now.
The dates are:
11th October Bloomsbury Theatre, London -
18th October Leicester Square Theatre, London -
1st November Bloomsbury Theatre, London -

Remember you can also buy a DVD of six of the secret stand up routines, plus a documentary and a video of series 2 episode 4 from Go Faster Stripe at
You can download the MP3s into your MP3 player or listen to them on your DVD and it's only a tenner.

My new Radio 4 show starts on October 14th at 6.30pm. In it I attempt to reclaim objects that have a negative association and make them popular again. I have recorded the first two already and they seem to be going well. But I should be writing the third one right now.... Do tune in or use iPlayer or listen again or whatever. I don't think they will be podcasted.

The DVD of my 2009 show "Hitler Moustache" will be out on October 25th. Although this was filmed by gofasterstripe it is being distributed by a company called PIAS and so will be in the shops and on Amazon etc. But please buy it from if you can so that they can get some money for their hard work - plus it's the only place you'll be able to get an exclusive extra extras disc (there is one with the main release, but all the really ace stuff is held back for the gfs one) - including a Collings and Herrin video podcast, a reconstruction of my phone theft, a documentary about my visit to York City FC, a video tour diary I kept until I got bored about 15 gigs in and loads of other stuff too. Hopefully Chris Evans (not that one) will get his act together and make it available for pre order soon.

We are doing two more live podcasts this year. There aren't many tickets left so book now
October 27th Old Vic studio, Bristol - - they have released an extra 50 tickets this weekend as we are now doing the show in the round, so be quick if you want to get in Brissle.
November 3rd Cardiff Masonic Hall -
We will also be recording four more exclusive podcasts on November 3rd which will hopefully be out in time for Christmas.
Collins and Herring are now back on 6Music every week on Saturday at 10am, until Adam and Joe decide they want to come back.
I will also be sitting in for Dave Gorman on his Sunday morning Absolute radio show on the 10th and 17th

I am a guest on Dave Gorman's Genius on 11th October at 10pm on BBC2 -
This was a lot of fun to do and I think it should make for a very entertaining half an hour, so do tune in.

The Lyric nights are back up and running and the first one (with headliner David Baddiel) went great.
Show 2 is on October 31st and it looks like a cracker with Kevin Eldon, David Schneider and a very special headliner who again cannot be named, but is one of my favourite comedians OF ALL TIME. Hopefully we can announce nearer the time, but if we do it will sell out straight away, so book NOW -

2nd Live at the Chapel in Islington
15th - Indigo at the O2 arena, along with a top bill including David Baddiel, Kevin Eldon, Tim Key, Greg Davies and more -
23rd Live at the Regal, Oxford -

Tickets are already on sale at most venues on my massive UK tour. More dates may be added, but all the ones so far confirmed are here -
I will also be performing the show at the Manchester Comedy Festival on October 26th at the Frog and Bucket -

You can still buy my latest book here (amongst other places)-

Thanks for your time and your continued support.
