    Frame 101

    Frame 101 - A Quiet Place. Rich is meant to be working, but takes a break (get it) to play his final frame of snooker of the decade. But what if his wife finds out what he's doing? He has to be super quiet, a bit like in that film. Will this be the end of Me1's marriage? And is that what Me2 wants? And who will win? And does anything matter any more? The suspense will kill you and Me1's wife may kill him, which will make future episodes less exciting. Happy New Year Listener.

    Frame 100

    Frame 100

    Frame 100 - It's finally here. We're made a century break and it's time to find out who will be in the lead at this crucial though completely arbitrary point of the contest. Will it be Me1 or Me2 or will a different Me come in and win it? There's only one way to find out. The Mes have failed to make a profit at snooker this year and the recent live event actually made a loss. But if you want to help and indeed to see that tournament when it is edited together then become a monthly badger at http://gofasterstripe.com/badges In the meanwhilst sit back and listen to this frame with some of the most impressive snooker in the whole 100 frames. Will it be the first frame ever where there isn't a foul shot? Only one way to find out.

    Frame 99

    Frame 99

    Frame 99 - Commentator Two Is Impressed. We're approaching the 100th frame of this long running contest and both players seem keen to win this not very important frame. And there is some scintillating play and records tumble like frozen fractals all around. The headphones started running out of juice about halfway through so I hope the sound is OK. I couldn't be arsed to check. See Me1 VS Me2 snooker LIVE at the Cockpit Theatre on 4th December. Amazingly some tickets left: tickets here

    Frame 98

    Frame 98

    Frame 98 - Recycled Art Exhibit. It's 17th November 2019 and the news is full of the antics (or not) and the sweat (or not) of the Grand Old Duke of York, but I doubt that that will get a mention in a serious sporting contest like this. But the snooker board has to be cleared of rubbish before the play can commence, which is apt as this is almost certainly the most rubbish snooker that has been witnessed in almost 100 frames. Who will be ahead at Frame 100 and does it matter? Does a foul on the final black ball end the game? All questions that must be answered in the next 26 minutes.

    Frame 97

    Frame 97 - Wasp Mortuary. It's been too long, but Me1 and Me2 are back on the old green board for a quick frame, even if they floor is littered with the bodies of insects. There's early controversy as one player gets away with knocking and replacing a ball, but then it's pure high-adrenaline snooker where only one player can win unless it's a draw. Who will emerge victorious as Frame 100 looms. Don't miss the chance to see Me1 Vs Me2 Snooker live on December 4th at the Cockpit Theatre in London. Tickets here - https://www.thecockpit.org.uk/show/richard_herring_me_1_vs_me_2_snooker Be quick because who knows if they will sell out?

    Frame 96

    Frame 96

    Frame 96: Dizzy The Mes are all ill having been dizzy and in bed all day, so perhaps it was an unwise decision to rise from the sick bed to play snooker. Or perhaps it was the best decision of all time. Although there are some lapses in concentration from the commentator and the referee that might have severely affected the result, the records were tumbling on the old green board and it's an amazing game of snooker. Who won? You know how to find out. Keep an eye on richardherring.com/gigs for news of the upcoming live frame. If you want to give to the RHLSTP kickstarter head to rhlstp.co.uk/kickstarter
