Thanks very much to everyone who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign. We hit our target (though Chris Evans, not that one, forgot about VAT so we'll have to find a couple of grand more from somewhere) so all 18 shows will appear on youtube
, vimeo and iTunes on video for free (as well as audio on iTunes and the British Comedy Guide)
We've got some amazing guests lined up with more to come (and some very exciting names in the frame). Some of these are sold out, but the Leicester Square Theatre has a reserve list, so get in touch with them. Book your tickets here
June 1st Bob Mortimer and Lou Sanders
June 8th Emma Kennedy and TBA
15th June Louis Theroux and Robert Webb
22nd June Johnny Vegas and Roisin Conaty
29th June Robin Ince and Mark Watson
6th July TBA and TBA
13th July Bridget Christie and TBA
20th June TBA and TBA

Remember monthly subscribers
will be the first to find out the big name guests via their own secret newsletter, but if the names I've got come off then you will want to book for those last three. Keep your eye on my Twitter feed
and the LST website
And we got a few episode sponsors via the kickstarter, but if you'd be interested in promoting your website or small business to up to 150,000 listeners and/or over 30,000 viewers (and don't mind me slightly taking the p*ss) then get in touch via email@example.com and we can discuss rates.
The King of Edinburgh Fringe
I am doing all 11 of my solo shows, plus Happy Now? over six weekends in August and September. You can get tickets to individual shows, but you get discounts if you buy for three or more, or six or more and to see all 12 is only £100 plus you get a one-off hand-drawn and signed T-shirt that I will have created for you.
I will be previewing some of this stuff throughout June and July - keep your eye on my gig guide
Other June gigs

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.
- 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.
I am on a couple of episodes of Best Behaviour on Radio 4. I turned on the radio last night and heard a familiar voice that I couldn't quite place. Then I realised that it was me. You can listen again to them. Here's this week's
I have been commissioned to write a new sitcom pilot for Channel 4, with an idea that combines my love of Goodnight Sweetheart with my hatred of Sliding Doors and takes it all to a whole new level. I also wrote an episode of the new series of Man Down, although the script was mainly stuff for Rik Mayall to do, so I don't think much, if any of it, has made it to screen. But that show is brilliant and it starts on June 1st, so do watch it.
