    RHLSTP 350 - Louise Wener

    #350 Docking - Richard had written an actual joke and been dreaming of tiny animal attacks, plus performing music in quite an unusual way. His guest it arguably a more accomplished musician - it’s the impossibly cool and talented Louise Wener. 


    They discuss the similarities of their experiences of school and the 90s, what it’s like to appear on Top of the Pops (and the impossibility of both of them getting on the show), writing your own reviews, the sexism of the music industry, stealing Blur’s cheese and why being a rock star is better the second time around.

    Retro RHLSTP 24 - Mark Addy

    #24 Sean Bean's Pound Shop Subterfuge - Richard proves he is down with the cool kids by chatting to his teenage fans about skateboards and exams before introducing a man who is at home driving a Bronto-crane as he is befriending a talking snowman as he is having a friend who travels through time and gets off with Samantha Mumba whilst he waits around in Victorian London twiddling his thumbs, it's bona fide Hollywood superstar Mark Addy. Will he live up to Richard's hopes and be as nice and down-to-earth as he appears to be on screen or will it all go a bit Game of Thrones? There are some great insights into how he was persuaded to do some of his films, what happens when you go to a pub with your name, what it must be like to be in Chris Rock's posse, and how Sean Bean gets cheap shampoo. Tales of a good York boy in Hollywood and the craziness of LA and the dangers of auto-fellatio and how he ended up playing Hercules. York is the best!

    RHLSTP 349 - Tim Key

    RHLSTP 349 - Tim Key

    #349 timkey - Richard’s son is a chip off the old block, though Richard is upset that Lego has introduced things that are chips instead of blocks. His guest is University fraud Tim Key.


    The pair compare garments before Richard suggests a radical rebrand for the actor/comedian, teases out the story of how Tim got into the Cambridge Footlights, and how Tim’s poet character developed. Plus a fascinating discussion on what it is like to work alongside your childhood comedy hero (not Richard as it turns out), how Tim physically injured Richard and his inspirational gift to make up for it, who is the fastest over long distances and whether snow is frozen water.

    Retro RHLSTP 23 - John Robins and Ahir Shah

    Retro RHLSTP 23 - John Robins and Ahir Shah

    #23 Suck Each Other Off A Bit - Richard reveals the hypocrisy of his parenting techniques and reminisces about the death of Lady Di. His first guest is Edinburgh Comedy Prize nominee Ahir Shah - they chat about Brexit, how looking into the sun proves your strength and wisdom and the older generations disregard for metaphorical ladders. His second guest is Edinburgh Comedy Prize nominee, Jon Robbins (sorry) John Robins. They talk about break ups, being in relationships with comedians, the way that Edinburgh haunts the long-term Fringe performer, a darker version of The Cobbler and how John loves to go to bed with his mum. Colin gets to quiz both guests and hopefully will be back with his own Edinburgh Fringe podcast next year. By the time you hear this you will probably know who is the winner and who are the losers, but here's the clip that John was talking about: Dustin Hoffmann Oscar speech (whizz through the noms if you like). Do check out both these guys shows at the Fringe or on tour.

    RHLSTP 348 - David Mitchell

    #348 Vice Versa - Richard has seen a middle aged man score a major triumph over two trainee baristas over the absence of a plate. His guest this week also expects crockery in coffee shops, it’s David Mitchell. 


    They discuss the cruel and ever speeding passage of time, how to revolutionise body swap comedies, obituary photos, how David turned out to be right about Upstart Crow and how Covid disrupted his first West End run, why David won’t be appearing on Taskmaster and how Richard was spared embarrassment when having his balls scanned. It’s got everything. 


    Plus Richard tries out his new book “Would You Rather?” on the master of Emergency Questions. Buy the book/ebook/audiobook wherever you get your books

    Retro RHLSTP 22 - Iain Stirling and Jason Manford

    #22 The Main Thing Is Ricky Gervais Didn't Win - Rich is mortified about having accidentally crashed someone else's show and is thinking of becoming someone who pays to sit in a hairdressers. But the good news is that Colin is back to remind his guests of times that things have gone wrong for them. Rich's first guest personally knows many of the people that Rich not-so-secretly lusts over at CBeebies - it's Iain Stirling. They chat about working alongside puppets (in their own different ways), how Love Island has turned Iain into a huge Edinburgh smash, the tragedy behind the Amazing Bubble Man and whether somehow Richard might be Iain's dad. Then Richard is joined by the Radio Times Comedy champion and also champion poor time keeper, Jason Manford to chat about the old bamboo, setting up comedy clubs, bizarre coincidences and I think a misunderstanding about what a human centipede involves.
