Holiday... Celebrate... Holiday
Hello hello
I am in the middle of a two-month hiatus where I am not really doing any work. It's OK.
I am not at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, but there are loads of great people up there. Off the top of my head you could see Lou Sanders, Brett Goldstein, Janey Godley, Danielle Ward's play... but basically any name you recognise from RHLSTP will be a sure fire good choice.
I have just found up I will be up there on the 23rd and 24th as I am taking part on a panel about podcasting (not sure if it there are tickets or whether it's just a TV festival thing). But it sure will be fun seeing all the comedians on the final weekend when they all wish they were dead.
Here's some stuff to think about:
The new hard back Emergency Questions book with 1001 questions (800 of them never published in book form before) will be out in October. It would be awesome if you all bought it. It will be in the shops and everything. Obviously it would be a huge boost to the podcast if it sells well. Also I will earn some money from being a podcaster to the astonishment of the world (only taken 11 years dudes).
You can preorder it at Go Faster Stripe which means that tax-paying Chris Evans (not that one) will make some money from it, rather than tax-avoiding Ian Amazon who has more money than he will ever need. And smells of poo. Chris smells of seaweed.
We may be doing some special signed/defaced copies as part as a kickstarter for the next series of RHLSTP.
There will be a few appearances at Literary Festivals etc. Including Henley on October 3rd.
Series 14 returns in the autumn with the first recording on 24th September. Jonathan Ames will be one of the guests for that first one. I am currently working on booking more guests, but it's worth taking a punt now as I am aiming high. And tickets are already selling well.
You can watch old episodes here
(also on iTunes)
Or listen at the British Comedy Guide
or iTunes
And if you want to help us make even more podcasts, and get festooned with amazing extras including all the RHLSTP backstage interviews, downloads of all my stand up shows, exclusive video question and answer sessions, entry into a monthly prize draw PLUS find out the RHLSTP guests before everyone else then why not become a Dripster
You'd be paying less than a pound a week in return for 365 blogs and about 40 RHLSTPS.
If you want pretty much all of that, but not the stand up shows (not sure if you'll get the Q and A sessions either) then set your own price and become a monthly badger.
This is very much an either/or choice with whichever package suits you best.
Due to cast non-availability we've had to push the recording date for series 2 back to November - which suits me as I still haven't written it.

House of Games
I think my episode will now be on in the autumn
  Here's me meeting some more TV puppets with my family. Who says I'm not showbiz?
