    Rosie Jones RHLSTP #215

    Rosie Jones RHLSTP #215

    Rich’s diet continues to go well, but will he be in his 2015 suit by the end of the series? The anticipation is killing us all I know. His guest this week is the sweet-looking, foul-mouthed Rosie Jones.

    They chat about her meteoric rise to stand up success, how pacing affects comedic impact and can save you having to write too much stuff, what it’s like to be on shows she once worked behind the scenes on, how Jimmy Carr messed up her jokes, some extraordinary stuff about having sex with dead animals, disabled representation in the media and how inappropriate humour can help us through tricky situations and ultra-serious acting scenes.

    Plus the other Rosie Jones and a new take on Sliding Doors and how comedy can help people to understand disability. You’ll love her. She’s awesome.

    Matt Lucas RHLSTP #214

    Matt Lucas RHLSTP #214

    Richard believes he will soon be a multi-millionaire but agrees to give 1/365th of this profits to charity. His guest is comedy legend Matt Lucas. They talk about the power of honesty in comedy, even if the comedian comes out of it badly, how Matt became possibly the only person who’s rung up to complain about a TV show to end up working with the stars, the combination of talent, hard work and luck that is required for success, being in a Blur video by accident, dealing with tragedy and a considered look back at Little Britain and how it should or shouldn’t be judged in hindsight. And the importance of talking about issues rather than shouting over the social media divide. Also Rich reveals his gay experimentation and considers changing teams.

    Les Dennis RHLSTP #213

    Les Dennis RHLSTP #213

    Happily-married Rich meets a man who works in a castle and the woman he has found love with, before introducing the legend that is Les Dennis.

    They talk about a mysterious spate of Norfolk-based graffiti, both types of dying on stage, the strange dynamics of a double act, living your private life out in public, getting tax advice from Ken Dodd and how go survive in showbusiness for half a century and counting. There are stories of the great comedians of the past and a heartwarming story of overcoming tragedy and heartbreak to come out stronger and a career that includes The Comedians, game shows, soaps and the RSC. It’s a truly remarkable and inspiring podcast from one of the loveliest men in the world who isn’t afraid to laugh at himself and make the jokes harsher than even Ricky Gervais can manage.

    Matt Forde RHLSTP #212

    Matt Forde RHLSTP #212

    Richard explains why he is constantly upsetting businesses who ask him to fill in surveys, before meeting this week’s guest, impressionist and satirist, who is still unable to write jokes about the future, Matt Forde.

    Find out about the extraordinary day where Matt was mentioned in parliament, diagnosed with a surprising disease and chased down the street by a spitting Finn, the rollercoaster of verbal abuse of being a child mascot for Nottingham Forest in 1993, whether Nottingham has anything that isn’t imaginary to be proud of, interviewing Blair and Farage, March based predictions for what will be happening in May, how topical it is possible to be and how broken the political system might be and how 650 idiots might save it. Plus a doctor’s blasé remedy for a fatal allergy and the hubris of claiming you know everything about Mark Lawrenson.

    Richard meets a nuclear physicist impersonator and has a friend who will never be any more than that. This week’s guest is disgraceful self-toucher Joel Dommett.

    They chat about the gamble of going into the jungle, the pitfalls of the modern dating scene, running a super marathon with the runs, being defeated at Pointless by someone who doesn’t understand the rules, the perils of proposing with a Spotify play-list and how it’s possible for two comedians never to gig together in 11 years.

    Richard has been spending a lot of time with his kids and consequently his stand up is going to be all Kids Do The Funniest Things from here on in. But it’s been a good ride. His guest is the non-award nominated yet brilliant stand up, Suzi Ruffell.

    The pair talk about where all the working class comedians have gone, Herring’s life of crime and how the police will never catch him, the Portsmouth witch, more horrible teachers, nocturnal worrying and the weirdness of anyone objecting to love. Plus the million to one chance of a man persuading lesbians to have a threesome.

The best comedy podcast on the Internet.

Richard Herring is a very funny man. He talks to other very funny people. It's a staggeringly simple concept that he carries off superbly.
