Richard Herring - August News

Hey everyone
The Edinburgh Fringe is almost upon us and I am really looking forward to both my shows. I hope this stupid King of Edinburgh thing doesn't persist this year. I still don't know how that got started.

My stand up show "Talking C*ck: The Second Coming" is at the Udderbelly in Bristo Square on 1st-26th August at 8.15pm. Tickets

The Edinburgh Fringe Podcast is at the Stand One at 2.15pm from 3rd-27th August (not 13th) with a preview at 4.10pm on 2nd August

It will be free to download from the British Comedy Guide -
and iTunes -
where you can also catch up on last year's show.

In July I recorded appearances on Dave's One Night Stand (which will be broadcast in November) and Set List for Sky Atlantic. I have also been commissioned to write a sit-com script based on my 1992 Edinburgh show Ra-Ra Rasputin by the BBC.

This will be returning in the autumn - Guests are as yet unconfirmed, but I am aiming for the same high standard as the first run. Buy tickets here -
Or catch up with what I think is my best podcast series yet on the British Comedy Guide-

Me1 vs Me2 snooker will be starting up again in September (unless I can find a snooker board in Edinburgh).

The DVD of What is Love, Anyway should be out in a matter of weeks and will be followed closely by series 2 of Fist of Fun. Buy them exclusively from where you can also purchase the Talking C*ck book and DVDs and downloads of all my other shows.
My weekly column for the Metro continues. You can read them here -

Thanks as always for the support. Spread the word about these things to anyone that you think might be interested.
