September News

Dear all,
I have just returned from Edinburgh after a reasonably successful run of "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules Terrace". See Warming Up and the press section of for details.
For those of you in and around London I will be playing a one off gig of the Hercules show on Saturday the 18th of Sept at the New Ambassadors Theatre at 9.30pm.
New Ambassadors Theatre,
West Street, London, WC2H 9ND
BOX OFFICE 0870 060 6627 (bkg fee)
Ticketmaster logo 0870 534 4444 (24hr cc bookings, bkg fee)
Tickets are £15. If this show is a success it will really help me to get a protracted London run elsewhere and to get gigs around the country, so please do come along if you can.
I am doing a few gigs round the country before Christmas. Check the gig guide for details.
I am recording a new radio series called "That Was Then, This Is Now" for Radio 2 starting this month. I will be joined by Kevin Eldon (Big Train), Emma Kennedy (People Like Us) and Christian Reilly (Otis Lee Crenshaw's The Black Liars). Tickets available for Tuesday 28th September and Wednesday 6th October. Also October 12th, 19th and 26th and November 2nd. These go pretty quickly so order now to avoid disappointment. Doors open 7.30pm (close 7.45pm). University of London Union, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY. ALL TICKETS ARE FREE and are now available - you can call us on (020) 8530 8100. You can also book via our webpage ( email with your full name, address, contact number and how many tickets you require.
As well as several boxes of Talking Cock show programmes, I now have programmes from the Hercules show to get rid of too. I you want a signed programme or 5 then please send a stamped addressed A4 envelope and a cheque for at least £1 per programme made payable to "SCOPE" (the more you donate, the quicker I will get round to sending it to you - SCOPE is the charity which I ran the Marathon for) to
Richard Herring, PO Box 48323,London, W12 8YY.
Please tell me which show or shows you require a programme from.
I have looked into what stamps you will need to put on your envelope. Here are the 2nd class rates.
1 programme - 35p, 2 programmes - 47p,3 programmes - 71p, 4 programmes - 83p, 5 programmes - 94p, 6 programmes - £1.14.
I don't think you'll get more than 6 in a envelope. You are welcome to have more, but just send more stamped addressed envelopes. Maximum order will be 4000 programmes.
If you would like a signed copy of the book "Talking Cock" then please send a cheque for £12 (including p&p) made payable to "Richard Herring" to the same address. You can get these cheaper elsewhere and then get me to sign them at a gig though.
If you would like a signed poster of "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules Terrace" please send a cheque for £5 made payable to Richard Herring to the same address. If you want more than one poster please add £2 for each extra one required.
I think that's all for now.
If you want to email me then don't press reply. Please email me at
