RHLSTP with Richard Herring
£10 - £18
Richard Herring’s interview podcast, known to the cool kids as RHLSTP (as any regular listener will know), is usually recorded in London’s glittering West End at the Leicester Square Theatre, but now it’s going on the road. Join the “Podfather” (Guardian), “King of the Internet” (Time Out) and “The UK’s online comedy pioneer” (The Times) as he chats with hilarious star guests in a theatre near you. Previous guests include Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Sarah Millican, Steve Coogan and Bob Mortimer. You can listen to all the 200+ previous episodes on Acast and iTunes. But it’s much more fun to see it live and hear all the bits that are too libellous and controversial to podcast.Winner of Bronze Sony Award for Best Comedy at Sony Radio Academy Awards and four-time winner of the Chortle Internet Award.
Prospect Magazine reviews RHLSTP
Richard Herring’s Leicester Square, Theatre Podcast (RHLSTP), Go Faster Stripe
RHLSTP, as it’s known to its fans, is probably the best comedy interview podcast going. It’s been around for a while but has really hit its stride with guests including comedian London Hughes, Jon Ronson and Brian Blessed. Herring’s a deliberately shambolic interviewer, with long, rambling encounters propped up by a bizarre list of “emergency questions,” but this style has a way of bringing out surreal anecdotes and stunning revelations from his guests. The interview with Louis Theroux, who is on uncharacteristically open and wise-cracking form, is unmissable.
