We’re big admirers of not only Richard Herring’s output over the last 25 years, but also his ethos – both championing the underdogs and ensuring audiences get a fair deal, as well as having a regular charity collection box at his shows, and annually saving International Women’s Day from social media idiots for good measure. In recent years, he’s been working increasingly with ‘our lot’ too, which gives us an ample excuse to cover the work of a man who helped shape the alternative comedy scene we know and love today.

The smash hit podcast shows he’s been running since 2012 feature the stand-up veteran and former Fist of Fun and TMWRNJ star discussing the art of comedy with some of the biggest names in the business, recorded in front of a packed audience at the Leicester Square Theatre, then releasing the results online via British Comedy Guide, Go Faster Stripe and/or YouTube.

Since the show began, 134 installments across ten series have been released, with previous TVO related guests including Stewart LeeArmando IannucciGraham LinehanRob DelaneySteve PembertonReece ShearsmithMike WozniakSteve CooganRebecca FrontBob MortimerLou SandersSharon HorganJessica HynesDiane MorganSarah KendallAisling BeaCariad LloydTony LawVic Reeves and Tom Davis. So if you haven’t dived in yet, these are essential listening, offering a unique glimpse into the minds of some of our favourite people, hosted by one of our favourite people for good measure.
