A series of exhibition snooker matches in which comedian Richard Herring recreates his lonely childhood by playing himself at snooker and commentating as he plays.
Frame 147 - Maximum Break. An incredible landmark as the podcast hits its 147th frame. Sadly everyone involved is so knackered that this is going to be a total waste of 20 minutes of your life. Richard seems annoyed to be there, the players can't play, the referee can't remember whose go it is. Absolute fucking shambles.
Frame 146 - No, I'm Czechoslovakia. In a crucial frame in the contest, Me1 takes on Me2 at snooker to see who is the best at snooker. They are both tired and dizzy and there are a few fouls in this one and practically no decent play, But you have to take the rough with the smooth and snooker is a game of two halves, so shut up with your complaining and just watch or listen to it and be grateful it's here at all. What's wrong with you?
Frame 145 - Württemberg. In a crucial frame in the contest, Me1 and Me2 face off on the old green board to try to determine which of them is best at snooker, whilst Richard propositions an 82 year-old woman who was widowed today and everyone gets a bit too excited about Referee 3 (can you spot the mistake she made in setting up the board?). Hang around til the end for the greatest shot ever made in the history of self-playing snooker - great in audio, even better in video. Tech difficulties meant that the latest football scores came at about 8.07pom which is no use to anyone. Sorry.
Frame 144 - Referee Three. In this crucial frame Me 1 takes on Me 2 at snooker to determine who is the best at snooker. And recent refereeing errors mean the frame begins with a bang, with no expense spared for the special effects. Will a new broom sweep the sport clean of claims of corruption. It's an incredibly spooky frame with thrills and spills and pills and gills. Watch to the end. You won't believe what happens.
Frame 143 - Fire Referee 1 (Into the Heart of the Sun). An exhausted Me1 and Me2 take to the old green board to see who will win this crucial frame. They are keen to get it over with as soon as possible, but another monumental refereeing error extends play time. Bad for them, but loads more snooker for you.
Frame 142 - Frog. A very tired Richard Herring presents this crucial frame in the contest. Can Sybil repeat her amazingly accurate prediction from last week? What were the football scores at 8.03pm? Who raids a snooker match after it is over? Why is an old bamboozled man hosting a Twitch channel? Who will win this crucial frame? Find out by watching/listening.
Only here for the in offs
The only way snooker should be played. On your own, in a loft, on a wonky green board, live streamed to a bunch of losers. SPSF forever!
