Richard Herring - September News

Hi all
Just about recovered from Edinburgh now - thanks very much if you came to either of the shows or downloaded the podcast. I suspect I will be back next year!

Just a quick update on what's going on

There's a new series of this on Radio 4 this autumn - We're recording them on in October on 08th at 7PM, 15th at 6PM, 24th at 7.30pm and 30th at 4pm.
You can get free tickets here -
Only the first two are available at the moment, but the others will be up soon.
Or listen to it when it's on the radio.

My monthly Sunday night gigs at the Lyric Hammersmith are starting up again on September 25th, with guests Jeremy Hardy, Phil Nichol, Matthew Crosby and Wes Packer. Book here -
You might also want to BOOK NOW for the October 30th gig with Stewart Lee, Josie Long and Sarah Kendall -

The tour kicks off for a warm up in October/November and then starts in earnest in January 2012
All the dates are here
The Frog and Bucket in Manchester is already sold out, so do book ahead for the other gigs. There are only a few London dates this time round - don't leave it til the last minute.

There are a couple of big releases coming up from
On October 31st Christ on a Bike will go on sale. It's already a double disc with over five hours of extras, but if you buy it from go faster stripe you will get a third disc packed with even more extra stuff (including the Richard Herring in Fiji documentary from 1999). It's the perfect Christmas gift - much better than some myrrh anyway.
Also coming out (exclusively on go faster stripe) in early November is the DVD of the first series of Fist of Fun. We've bought this from the BBC at not inconsiderable expense and we've put together a lovely 4 disc set with all kinds of cool extras including commentaries, interviews, scripts, and some unseen material. Series 2 will be out next year and if these both sell OK and we don't lose our shirts then we'll look into releasing TMWRNJ too.
You should be able to pre order these DVDs from the middle of next week.

I am running the Royal Parks Half Marathon for SCOPE on October 9th. Be lovely if you wanted to sponsor me (even if it's just a pound) -
If you're there on the day do shout out your support!

Thanks as always for your support
Have a good month
Rich Herring
