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.
Winter Tourney - Round 2, Matches 1 and 2
Winter Tournament - Round 2, Matches 1 and 2. Rich is about to take a shortish break (geddit) but manages to get in two frames before lockdown, though the snooker board is warping by the second. Impressionist Me37 takes on Viking Me15 and Oversharing Me18 faces off to one of only two previous semi-finalists still in the contest Gay Me3. And there's some pearls amongst the excrement tonight. We'll meet again, don't know where don't know when, but one thing will be different on the next time we're together. Apologies for the many technical issues with this event. But it's all part of the fun.
Winter Tourney - Matches 15 and 16
It's a thrilling end to round one of the Winter Tournament as we finally find out who the last 16 players will be. Interestingly all finalists from the first three tournaments are already out, so we're guaranteed two virgin finalists (even more virgin if teenage me was still in). Tonight sees Female Me take on Somerset Me in one of the most exciting frames ever and then self-doubting me takes on oversensitive me in one of the most forgettable frames ever. Next week, if God be willing, we'll be back with the start of round two. Incredibly exciting times, especially for any five year olds watching.
Winter Tourney - Matches 13 and 14
We're approaching the end of round one and tonight sees the Titans that are Samuel Beckett Me and Italian Me fighting it out for the chance to play newcomer Motorcycling Me and perennial loser Northern Irish Me. There's controversy, there's a lot of xenophobia and there is some of the worst self-playing snooker that has ever been broadcast in any medium.

Winter Tourney - Matches 11 and 12
The winter tournament continues apace as the arena gets renamed during the broadcast as news filters through of a tragic demise. It's Boring Me versus Sleepy Me and Ventriloquist Dummy Me versus Total Recall Me, so at least one dull and at least one high concept character will be in the next round. But which ones. Only one way to find out. Plus this month's monthly badger draw winner announced - Next month it could be you. Support us here http://gofasterstripe.com/badges and get loads of extras.

Winter Tourney - Matches 9 and 10
Big Drama. Two self-playing snooker legends in action tonight in former champion Me31 and three times semi-finalist Me7. If they both win they will meet in round 2, but Conspiracy Theory Me, me 22 and Serious Me, Me4 will be doing their best to stop them. All in an arena named after a murdered horse.

Winter Tourney - Matches 7 and 8
After a week off to accommodate Richard's film career, we're full steam ahead with Teenage Me taking on Yorkshire Me and former champ Welsh Me taking on the lowlife that is Meninist Me. By the end of tonight 40 players will have become 28 and we'll be halfway to knowing the line-up for Round 2. But for now let's just sit back and enjoy some of the greatest self-playing snooker ever committed to tape.

These players and their entourage have been self-isolating for years, and now the cool kids are finally catching up. Learn from the masters, not their pupils, by listening to this genius podcast.
I hate regular snooker but this is something else. Self playing snooker should be an olympic sport!
