Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast

With a decade of acclaimed Edinburgh shows under his belt, Richard Herring is a stand-up institution. In his podcast RHLSTP (pronounced as an unbroken string of consonants), he conducts on-stage interviews with famous names from the comedy and wider entertainment world. While there’s plenty of cheekiness along the way, Herring has proved himself to be a superbly deft interviewer, gently coaxing his guests off the usual script and towards genuinely candid moments. Recent guests have included Michael Palin, Konnie Huq, Grayson Perry and Sarah Millican. The live shows will hopefully return later this year.
