The good news is that 2016 is over 50% of the way through.
The bad news is all the news.
But I will continue doing comedy until the fascist dictatorship that will rule the Independent principality of England has all entertainers strung up from lamp posts. So at least until November.
Here's what is going down the month that (without assuming anything) I turn 49 years of age. What?
The new series of RHLSTP has begun and podcasts with Iain Lee, Tony Law and Lauren Laverne have already been released, with Doc Brown, Marcus Brigstocke, David Cross, Vic Reeves and Susie Dent already in the can.
You can watch the series on video on Youtube
(also vimeo and iTunes)
Still got two guests to book but here's the remaining line-ups
4th July Nish Kumar + Matthew Crosby
11th July Graham Linehan and Sofie Hagen
18th July Tim Minchin and Russell Kane (put name on waiting list for tickets if it is sold out)
25th July TBC + TBC
RHLSTP in YORK
I am doing an interview podcast during the great Yorkshire Fringe on 26th July. My guests will be Mark Addy and the Lord Mayor of York
Me1 Vs Me2 Snooker
Unbelievably Me1 Vs Me2 snooker has been invited to participate in
Tempting Failure, a celebration of Transgressive Performance Art (where
other participants will be cooking their own excrement and cutting
themselves). If you want to see a few frames of me playing myself at
snooker (as well as said poo cooker), then book for the 28th July. Details are here
On 29th I will also be taking part in another part of the Festival where I will be interviewed whilst having my hair cut. Details on the website above (I am guessing).
AIOTM IS COMING BACK
We're starting to film some stuff for this this month.
Again we will plough ticket money back into production costs, so if we can sell out the live shows then we can do more and better stuff for you.
I think we're planning to release the completed shows weekly in 2017 so if you want to see it first, see it live.
My next tour which will be a Best Of... called Richard Herring: The Best.
You can see all the confirmed gigs for the tour in
THE BEST CHARITY PROGRAMME
As usual I will be giving out a free programme at all the shows. And you have the chance to get your name in it, get a limited edition signed programme and give some money to Scope.
If you want all these amazing things then go to my new justgiving page
and donate at least £15 (you can give less but you won't get the above benefits). The more you donate the bigger your name will appear. Then email me your address (even if you've done so before) to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send out the signed programmes as soon as they are ready.
You will need to get your donation made by the end of July.
You can also buy quarter, half of full page ads. Contact me for rates.
These are the non-RHLSTP gigs this month
7th Drury Lane - The Best
21st Muswell Hill - The Best
- Interview podcast
28th Me 1 Vs Me2 Snooker
30th Greenwich Festival
It's pretty much over. The DVD should be out soonish and there is one remaining last chance to see it live.
9th September Stratford-upon-Avon
I am writing a second draft of my Alternate Universe sitcom "Everything Happens (for no reason)". Don't hold your breath.
