New Newsletter

Hi all I have set up a new and swanky newsletter system, which you have been added to. But some people are finding the newsletter has gone into their junk file. So I am emailing you to ask you to check your junk. Always check your junk. I am checking mine right now and it's full of salty spam. You can see the latest newsletter here - Or in your inbox or junk folder. Thanks for your time Richard K Herring

Richard Herring - Golden April Showers to you all

Hello Happy Spring time to you. Don't forget to put your clocks forward tonight. Unless you're reading this after the clocks have already gone forward. Don't keep putting them forward. If you go too far you'll be dead and won't be able to put them back again. Am having a lovely, if slightly exhausting time being a new and old dad.

Richard Herring February News

Hi all My big news this month is that I am now someone's father. My daughter Phoebe was born on the 10th February. Luckily she looks just like her mother, though she has inherited my flatulence (and we are guff twins - I can't tell ours apart).


(Richard Herring February News) Hi all Still no patter of tiny feet, or splatter of filling nappies, but baby Herring is due next week, so I thought I'd get the newsletter in early.

January extra - King ot Ediburgh Fringe

Hi all Just wanted to let you know about a couple of extra things KING OF EDINBURGH FRINGE I am eschewing the Edinburgh Fringe this year so I don't have to rent a ridiculously expensive and rubbish flat in Scotland.

Richard Herring. It's 2015

Happy New Year everyone It's a brand new year and maybe this time the human race can go a whole 365 days without anyone being a dick. Fingers crossed. My attempt to reach 72kg by January 1st 2015 did not come off (though I never dreamed it would) though I got surprisingly close, hitting 79.4kg in August. I began 2014 at 95.

Hi all Just a couple of quick things.

It's Richard Herring Monday!

Richard Herring November 2014

Hi all Hope you're as excited about Bonfire night as I am. Not at all excited. To be honest I am still mainly concerned with getting all this year's cumpkin out of my hair. Though can't wait to see what Ian Gunpowder gets up to this year. Here is the stuff that you can ingest through your ears and eyes for free and for money this month.

Richard Herring - October News

Hello I’ve had a month off and put on half a stone, but now it’s back to work and back on my diet. Luckily after this year’s Fringe I can’t really afford to eat any more anyway! But I had a fun September playing Terminator 2 pinball on my computer. "Get the CPU!" Right, Terminator 2 pinball fans? Is this thing on?

Richard Herring - September News

Hello all A happy September to you all. Thanks to those of you who came to see the play and/or stand-up show in Edinburgh. I was very pleased with both, but ticket sales were not as high as I hoped (or needed to get anywhere near breaking even), so it was disappointing financially.

Richard Herring - Edinburgh News

Hi all We're just a week away from the start of the Fringe, so just a reminder of what I am up to in Auld Reekie this year, plus news of a ticket offer. Please feel free to recommend these shows to anyone you think might be interested. I am in a BIIIG theatre this year. There will be plenty of tickets available.

Richard Herring July news

June News

Hi all Edinburgh is looming and I am trying to write a play (about ten pages in so far, but don't worry, it will be ready in time). The We're All Going To Die! tour is over (the DVD should be out in the autumn) so most of the focus is on Edinburgh and the massive theatre I need to fill!

Richard Herring May News

Hello everyone I've just got back from St Petersburg where I've been researching my new play and drinking vodka (which counts as research, right?) and tonight I am appearing on Pointless Celebrities, so that's pretty much the peak of my career. I am starting to put weight back on too, so I am going to go for a run after this.

Hello all We are approaching Halloween, but remember, we have nothing to fear but fear itself.... and monsters. And Frankingsteins are pretty scary too. Or maybe they're covered by monsters.

Richard Herring - September News

Hey everyone I have just got back from holiday on the Amalfi Coast, a place that taught me that if life gives you lemons, you make a sickly sweet liqueur and flog it to tourists in nice bottles, knowing that when they get it home and are no longer in the sunshine it will taste of nothing but lost happiness.
