    #258 Tub of Spunk - RHLSTP returns to the Grand Opera House, York for the second week running. York is the most haunted city in Europe and Richard finds out what percentage of his audience have seen a ghost. The answer might surprise you. His guest is footballing and eating legend, Jon Parkin. 


    They discuss the journeyman sportsman’s slightly unconventional training routine, his writing off of a golf buggy (and almost a goalkeeper), shitting in a bath in Magaluf, missing out on starters, how to lie your way out of being late for training, how he became friends with Jilly Cooper, self-inflicted injuries, gambling problems, depression and where he goes next now his playing career is over and if there’s any place for a bluff, proud, honest (except when he’s not) old-fashioned Yorkshireman in today’s game. Would he do anything differently if he had his time over? Would he f**k?

    #257 Glass Pyramid - Richard is back in York, this time at the Grand Opera House and he’s come up with a plan to rescue the magic football bones of Richard III from the thieving Leicester-folk. His guest is York City’s second most famous comedian supporter and food-poisoning victim, David Reed.


    They talk about crap student impro, working with the Twirlywoos, living next door to your parents, why you shouldn’t eat at *****, whether rescuing Jesus from the cross would be good or bad for the world, playing a nervous Peter Cook and how many Herring hands you could fit in one Walliams hand.

    #256 Psychic Sex Twin - Richard is back at the Leicester Square Theatre and filling for time as nothing has happened to him in the week that has passed since last week’s show. His guest is comedian and project manager Athena Kugblenu.


    They chat about disposable nappies, inappropriate work emails, podcasting in your kitchen with your baby on your knee, how stereotypes about a continent the size of Africa do not hold up, whether indiscretions mean a left-leaning politician must resign, whether it’s culturally appropriate for Richard to kiss his teeth and how stand up and podcasts can level the playing field. Plus some baby talk, just to annoy the people who don’t like that

    #255 Spaceship Moon - Richard is back at his spiritual home of the Leicester Square Theatre and has more news about what you shouldn’t put up or on your genitalia. His guest is the most well-read man in comedy Robin Ince.


    They talk mainly about his fabulous book “I’m a Joke and So Are You” https://www.amazon.co.uk/Im-Joke-Are-You-Comedians/dp/178649258X/ and where comedians get their crazy ideas from. They take in whether childhood trauma leads to a life in comedy, whether comedy calms or aggravates the voices in our heads, wanting to throw babies downstairs, the dangers of looking at the next person up and wishing for what they have and whether it’s true that we can’t say anything any more.

    #254 Oklahoma - Rich liked the Newcastle Stand so much last week, he’s returned to talk about how squirrels ruined his day and to list the questionable achievements of the city. His guest is surrealist and former clown, Seymour Mace. 


    They discuss what God was thinking when he tested Job, stealing from a gold mine, appearing in a terrible non-zombie zombie film, that you’re all want to see now, meeting Arthur Bostrom, the genius and kindness of Bernie Clifton, how being on stage can be the only place a comedian feels happy and how a severed cow can bring you love.

    #253 Woody Allen Lift Horror - Rich is at the Newcastle Stand and mourns the possible end of Pizza Express but celebrates besting Piers Morgan. His guest is bricklayer turned comedian turned fillum star, Dave Johns. Dave takes us on his remarkable journey from Byker to I, Daniel Blake and beyond sprinkling the show with brilliant anecdotes about his brushes with A listers.


    Hear how Ken Loach ruined Dave’s donkey ride business, how he was tricked by Homer Simpson, how he captured Lee and Herring’s jacuzzi discomfort, misused modesty pouches, how he ended up sharing chips with Cindy Crawford and his disastrous gig to cross dressers on a nuclear submarine. A great lesson in how to stay down to earth when success comes knocking, from one of the most popular and most cheeky acts on the UK circuit.
