Halfway Through 12 shows!
  It's pretty much September and I have already done six of my ridiculous 12 show run and I haven't forgotten anything important yet... but there's plenty of time. Here's all the stuff that's going on at the moment
The Twelve Shows of Herring

Still six more chances to see me working my way though my solo oeuvre and there's tickets for all shows (though the final show, Happy Now? is very close to selling out). Thanks to everyone who has come along - there has been a great turn-out so far.
My best show "What is Love, Anyway?" is the lowest seller, so come to that one, you idiots.
28th August The Headmaster's Son
29th August Hitler Moustache
4th September What is Love Anyway?
5th September We're All Going To Die!
11th September Lord of the Dance Settee
12th September Happy Now?
The Twelve Shows of Herring Podcast
If you want to keep up with how it's all going, then tune into my Twelve Shows of Richard Herring podcast, which comes out twice a week during the run.
You can listen for free at the British Comedy Guide
PLUS I am putting out audio of the first ten shows (not Lord of the Dance Settee or Happy Now? as they are not yet available on DVD) for the ridiculously low price of £12. That's 15 hours of stand up. Buy it here.
Charity Programme Offer
If you would like a set of the remaining show programmes (menage a un have run out and only a couple of Hercules and Hitler progs left) as well as leaflets from nearly every show (all will be signed too), then donate at least £20 to SCOPE (or £25 if you are abroad) via my justgiving page.
Then email your address to me via and I will post you a big envelope full of funny programmes. And all your money goes to a great charity.
Happy Now?
I will be touring the new show in the autumn of 2015 and the spring of 2016. I am mainly only going to places where I sell pretty well, so it's worth booking ahead. A few more dates will be added (including Cheddar), but here's all the confirmed dates.
Still loads of great shows to come out from Series 7, including Jessica Hynes this week and the brilliant Bridget Christie next Wednesday.  You can see them on youtube, vimeo and iTunes on video for free (as well as audio on iTunes and the British Comedy Guide)
And tickets are on sale for series 8, which are being recorded on Sundays at 4pm from September 27th til November 29th. Some great possible guests already. There will be news about this very soon.
Remember monthly subscribers will be the first to find out the big name guests via their own secret newsletter. Keep your eye on my Twitter feed and the LST website for details.
We're hoping to film the next series, but there are 20 episodes and we need to raise £50,000 to pay for the crew, editing and equipment hire. We're 15 days in and have raised £22,000 so we need to pick up the pace a little bit. If you would like to see another run of videos (and pick up some cool rewards) then donate a little or a lot here. We only need another 1000 people to get on board. Will you be one of them?
Although Warming Up podcast is taking a break at the moment, I have managed to record three new frames of Me1 Vs Me2 Snooker which are going up over the next couple of weeks. Listen here.
Other attempts to make money to create brand new internet content and hopefully a new monthly series of AIOTM in 2016 include:
My ebay page - weekly additions of old scripts, Lee and Herring memorabilia and poorly drawn T-shirts and signed snooker balls. All the money goes to future internet projects.
Monthly subscriptions - Pay a pound (or more) a month (or make a one-off donation) in return for a badge, entry into a monthly prize draw, access to a secret channel of exclusive extras (like additional backstage interviews at RHLSTP) and a badge.
It's good to know that if I forget my lines for Hitler Moustache I have an understudy waiting in the wings.
Thanks for reading. Please spread the word of my endeavours to anyone that you thinkmight be interested.
