Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast
Richard Keith Herring (born 12 July 1967) is an English comedian and writer, whose early work includes the comedy double-act Lee and Herring. He is described by the British Theatre Guide as "one of the leading hidden masters of modern British comedy".
He is celebrated for concept-led one-person live stand-up shows like Talking Cock, Hitler Moustache and Christ on a Bike. Since 2004, Herring has created a new show every year: developing them at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, touring them extensively throughout the year, and recording the final performance for DVD. His 2015 show, Happy Now? is his twelfth consecutive stand-up show in as many years.
He is also recognized as a pioneer of comedy podcasting, initially with broadcaster Andrew Collins on The Collings and Herrin Podcast and more recently with high-profile comedians such as Simon Pegg, Russell Brand and Stephen Fry on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast.
Richard Herring was born in Pocklington, East Riding of Yorkshire, and grew up in Cheddar, Somerset. He attended The Kings of Wessex School, where his father was the headmaster and maths teacher. This later formed the basis of his 2008 stand-up show, The Headmaster's Son.
Between 1992 and 2000, Richard was one half of the standup comedy double act with Stewart Lee. They were probably best known for their television work, most notably Fist of Fun and This Morning With Richard Not Judy but had been collaborating on stage and radio projects since the 1980s.
With Stewart Lee, Herring wrote material for Chris Morris and Armando Iannucci's On the Hour (1991). During this time the duo contributed to the creation of the character Alan Partridge. In 1992 and 1993, they wrote and performed Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World for BBC Radio 4. For Radio 1, they wrote and performed one series of Fist of Fun (1993), which was later remade for television in 1995 and 1996. They also hosted a series on Radio 1 in 1994 and 1995, simply called Lee and Herring. A final television partnership with Lee, This Morning With Richard Not Judy, ran for eighteen episodes over two series but eventually became a victim of BBC management reshuffles.

Since ending his informal partnership with Stewart Lee, Herring has written and performed in a large body of one-person shows. The successful Talking Cock was translated into several European languages.
For radio Herring co-wrote and presented the history based sketch show That Was Then, This Is Now. For television he wrote Al Murray's sitcom Time Gentlemen Please. He also contributed to the third series of Little Britain as script editor.
On 25 November 2002 Herring started his blog Warming Up as a way to overcome writer's block. He has written an entry for every single day since then, over 4000 consecutive entries. It is estimated that he has a regular readership of over 3,000. Some of the ideas from Warming Up were used in his 2005 Edinburgh show Someone Likes Yoghurt, his 2006 Edinburgh show Ménage à Un and his 2007 Edinburgh show Oh Fuck, I'm 40!. In December 2008 the first six months of his blog were published in a book called Bye Bye Balham. The blog also proved a source for his 2010 book How Not To Grow Up and his 2011 stand up show "What is Love, Anyway?"
In 2005, he presented a chat show called Heads Up with Richard Herring on the Pokerzone channel, in which he interviewed professional poker players and celebrities about their careers and their love of the game. There were ten episodes in total.
Herring also made weekly appearances on Andrew Collins's BBC Radio 6 Music radio show on Saturday afternoons, where the two would discuss the week's papers. Occasionally he hosted the show in Collins's absence and joined him for the whole of his final show on 31 March 2007. Herring was also a panellist on BBC Radio 4 gameshow Banter, which was presented by Collins.
In January 2007, Herring's live stand-up show Someone Likes Yoghurt was filmed in Cardiff and released on DVD on 16 May by the independent distributor Go Faster Stripe. A recording of an earlier show, The 12 Tasks of Hercules Terrace, was released on 5 March 2007. Herring returned to Cardiff in June 2007 to film his third DVD, ménage à un. This DVD was released on 19 December 2007. He recorded Oh Fuck, I'm 40 on 21 March 2008. This DVD was released by Go Faster Stripe on 9 December 2008. He recorded The Headmaster's Son on 2 June 2009 at the Bristol Tobacco Factory. This was released by Go Faster Stripe on 11 February 2010. The DVD of Hitler Moustache was recorded on 2 April at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff and was released through PIAS/Go Faster Stripe on 25 October 2010. He recorded Christ on a Bike at the Leicester Square Theatre in 2011 and What is Love, Anyway?, Talking Cock, We're All Going To Die! and Lord of the Dance Settee at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 respectively.
In February 2007, filming began on Herring's new comedy drama You Can Choose Your Friends. As well as writing the script, Herring also played one of the characters alongside Gordon Kennedy, Claire Skinner, Rebecca Front, Sarah-Jane Potts, Robert Daws, Anton Rodgers and Julia McKenzie. The show was broadcast on ITV on 7 June 2007.
In January 2008 he began producing the Collings and Herrin (sic) podcast with Andrew Collins. They celebrated their two-year anniversary with a live "100th" podcast (it was actually about the 105th one they had done) at the Leicester Square Theatre. On 30 January 2010 the pair started sitting in for Adam and Joe on BBC Radio 6 Music on Saturdays mornings, a slot they continued in for over a year.
His 2008 stand-up set The Headmaster's Son earned four 5 star reviews and several 4 star reviews. The set covers his experience growing up in The Kings of Wessex School in Somerset where his father worked as headmaster and how this may have encouraged him to make puerile jokes. The show was seen by critics as a thoughtful look at his upbringing, and his relationship with his father, to whom the show is dedicated.
The original idea behind his 2009 show, Hitler Moustache, was to see if he "could reclaim the toothbrush moustache for comedy – it was Chaplin's first, then Hitler ruined it." The show discusses broader issues, such as fascism and the British National Party. Herring and some of his contemporaries, including Dave Gorman, were angered when comments he makes in his show were misrepresented in an opinion column written by critic Brian Logan in The Guardian. In his piece about offensiveness in comedy, Logan failed to communicate that Herring's line "that racists have a point" is accompanied by a critical commentary of democracy.
On 12 October 2009, he recorded the first episode of As It Occurs To Me, a weekly stand-up and sketch show made especially for internet download. It also features Emma Kennedy, Dan Tetsell and Christian Reilly and had a first run of 10 episodes. A second series of eight episodes ran from 17 May to 5 July 2010. It was nominated for best internet show at the 2010 Sony Awards, though it failed to place. An Edinburgh special took place during the Fringe on 17 August and there were three autumn specials in October and November 2010. A third series of six episodes started on 16 May 2011.
On 14 October 2010, his Radio 4 series Richard Herring's Objective was first broadcast. In it Herring attempted to reclaim demonised items, starting with the Hitler moustache. The other episodes revolve around the hoodie, St George's Flag and Dolly the Sheep. An Edinburgh special about the "See You Jimmy" Hat was broadcast in August 2011 and a second series was recorded in October 2011 with episodes about the Golliwog, the wheelchair, the Page 3 girl and the Old School Tie.
On 7 February 2011, As It Occurs to Me won the first Chortle Internet award  On 20 March 2012 he retained it. He won the award for a third year running in 2013 for his Leicester Square Theatre Podcast  His Leicester Square Theatre Podcast again won the award in 2014.
On 18 May 2011 he recorded a live performance of his 2010-11 show, Christ on a Bike: The Second Coming, which was released by Go Faster Stripe on 31 October 2011.
In May 2011 it was announced that Fist of Fun would be released on DVD via Go Faster Stripe. The first series was released on 5 December 2011. Series two was released in November 2012. The series two set won Best DVD at the 2013 Chortle Awards 
His 2011 Edinburgh show What Is Love, Anyway premiered at the Cow Barn on 3 August, and was taken on a 74 date tour between October 2011 and May 2012. It was filmed by Go Faster Stripe at the Bloomsbury Theatre on 30 March 2012 and released on 9 August 2012. His other 2012 Edinburgh show, Richard Herring's Edinburgh Fringe Podcast topped the iTunes chart for 3 weeks during August 2011 and guests included Adam Buxton, Sarah Millican, Al Murray and Omid Djalili.
In 2012 he also recorded 16 episodes of Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast with guests including Tim Minchin, Stewart Lee, Adam Buxton, David Mitchell, and Armando Iannucci. It was nominated for a Sony Award for Best Comedy alongside a list of BBC produced comedy shows in 2013. It won the Bronze Award  In May and June 2013 he recorded nine podcasts with guests including Stephen Fry, Russell Brand and Mary Beard  In the interview with Stephen Fry, Fry revealed that had attempted to commit suicide. The story was reported across various newspapers and international news networks including the BBC and Sky News. A fourth series was recorded in September and October 2013 with guests including Stephen Merchant, Simon Pegg and Ross Noble. A fifth series was recorded in February and March 2014 with guests including Alexei Sayle, Greg Davies, Harry Shearer and Adam Buxton  A sixth series was recorded between September and November 2014 with guests including Sarah Millican, Steve Coogan and Milton Jones. Series 7 was recorded in June and July 2015 and guests included Bob Mortimer and Louis Theroux. An eighth series was recorded between September and November 2015 with guests including David Mitchell, Jack Whitehall and Richard Bacon.
His 2013 Edinburgh Fringe stand up show We're All Going To Die! was performed at the Pleasance Beyond and was critically acclaimed, with three 5 star and several 4 star reviews. It was followed up by a 2013-2014 UK tour and a podcast of the same name.
On 17 November 2013 he recorded the first episode of his six-part internet stand-up/sketch/interview show Richard Herring's Meaning of Life.
