Richard Herring- Edinburgh Fringe

Hello everyone
It's that time of year again and I am about to wend my way North to appear at my 20th Edinburgh Fringe. Tickets are selling well for both shows so please book now -

3rd-28th August at 8.50pm at the Cow Barn on Bristo Square
Buy tickets here -
Be quick if you want to get hold of the cheap preview or two for one tickets in the first week
The show is coming together very well in preview and many people are already saying it's my best show yet. I am very pleased with how it is going. Hope you can make it.

3rd August at 4.50pm Preview show (with guest Michael Legge)
5th-29th August (not 15th) at 2pm (with different guests every day)
A different show every day, which will also be available to download for free from iTunes and the British Comedy Guide shortly after the performance. There will be prizes and great guests and lots of stupidity. Should be fun.

There is still the chance to catch the new stand up show in preview. Full details here -

The show will be doing some preview gigs in November and then touring from January 2012 onwards. I will let you know full details as soon as I have them. Please do not email or tweet me asking if I am coming to your town. I will let you know as soon as it's all confirmed.
I will be at Manchester Comedy Festival at the Frog and Bucket on October 18th at 8pm. Tickets already on sale here - Book now - this always sells out way in advance.

I am now recording Warming Up as a podcast. You can subscribe on iTunes or in soundcloud -

Some great stuff coming out this year at Go faster stripe -
In a couple of weeks we are releasing AIOTM - The Complete Cumpkin which includes all 28 episodes of the award winning podcast, plus all the secret stand ups, plus some videos and a specially commissioned poster. I will let you know when it's available.
At the end of October the DVD of Christ on a Bike will be released. This will be available in the shops as a 2 disc set, but there is a 3rd disc only available from GFS which includes over 3 more hours of stuff including an exclusive Collings and Herrin video podcast and the 1999 documentary "Richard Herring in Fiji" plus lots more. So buy from GFS.
Around the same time we will also be releasing the first series of the 1990s cult TV show "Fist of Fun". We have bought this from the BBC ourselves at not inconsiderable expense, so really need you ALL to buy it. It will include all six episodes, with commentaries from me and Stew, plus a 40 minute chat with us reminiscing about the series, plus unseen sketches and studio footage, interviews with some of the actors and much more. It's going to be awesome.

I am running the Royal Parks Half Marathon for SCOPE in October. I am old and this might kill me, so I would appreciate it if you sponsored me to make my self-sacrifice worthwhile -
Or you can take part yourself. Visit for details.

My pilot script for this new BBC comedy drama about a fictional Somerset Gorge and the people who work there is finished and has been handed in for consideration by the powers that be. I am very pleased with it, but that means nothing. It's all in God's hands now. Or BBC executives. Whichever has the most power. Will let you know what happens when I know!

Follow me at @Herring1967 for jokes and updates of what I am up to. See for an amusing piece on Twitter etiquette.

I am very much looking forward to Edinburgh and if you keep an eye on my blog and my Edinburgh podcast I will furnish you with loads of suggestions as to who you should be going to see. I have a feeling it's going to be a cracker this year. Come on up (or down or across) and join the fun.
Richard Herring
