RHEFP 2017 #3: Iain Stirling and Jason Manford - 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…
 
RHEFP 2017 #2: James Acaster - Three Nights in Peterborough. Richard is so close to becoming the Radio Times Comedy Champion that he can almost taste it, which will just make his ultimate failure all the more painful and thus amusing, but luckily he almost shat his pants on a children's roundabout. HIs guest went one step further than that, it's th…
 
RHEFP 2017 #1: The Doug Anthony All Stars - The Boy Who Cried Batman. The King has returned and he's at the spooky New Theatre Grand Hall where the Masons get up to all sorts of mysterious time-travelling. And Richard is very excited to be welcoming comedy legends the Doug Anthony All Stars, Paul, Tim and Paul. There's lots of chat about the Edinbu…
 
RHEFP 2013 #25: Jason Manford and Wayne Mazadza - The Final Curtain? After 75 mostly audible hours of entertainment Richard is hanging up his badger sporran and relinquishing his monarchy of Edinburgh for the last time. And he's going out in style with a man who has had lunch with Gino and Mel, Jason Manford. They chat about gate-crashing Ramadan, …
 
RHEFP 2013 #24: Baconface, Simon Donald and Jarlath Regan - It's All Bacon. Richard reveals that tomorrow's podcast will almost certainly be the last RHEFP (rhefp) ever, so if you have enjoyed these 75 hours of free goodness and resent giving him any money, then why not sponsor Rich on a potentially fatal attempt to run a half-marathon in 5 weeks t…
 
RHEFP 2013 #23: Caroline Rhea, Barry from Watford and Alex Edelman - Going Down On Colin. Richard is waiting for the Perrier people to turn up with his Spirit of the Fringe award, but the only person winning anything today is Colin, who in his last appearance is festooned with gifts. Though some of them will be stolen by first guest Caroline Rhea (…
 
RHEFP 2013 #22: Ed Byrne, Bridget Christie and Luke Wright - Slithery Calves. Rich is worried about the bullying that Chelsea Manning might be getting in prison, but is relieved to see Colin is still alive (if he was ever alive). His first guest is Ed Byrne who knows the correct pronunciation of Sudoku and is very happy to talk about Pointless for …
 
RHEFP 2013 #21: Paul Putner, Scroobius Pip and Sarah Campbell - Just A Band. Rich starts by praising the many toilet-seat wee-ers that Edinburgh seems to attract for their amazingly committed work and spots some celebrity lookalikes in the audience. Then he chats to Paul Putner about the Curious Orange, Little Britain and Glam Metal Detectives bein…
 
RHEFP 2013 #20: Mark Thomas, Rob Delaney and Chris Stokes - Pointless. Rich is a little weary and struck down by awards day depression and annoyed by journalists spotting themes from too small a selection of shows and top 10 joke competitions. He also has a theory about what might have happened to Colin. His guests are a busy (and slightly late) Ma…
 
RHEFP 2013 #19: Peacock and Gamble and Dana Alexander - Double Bumhole. Richard is concerned about all the people calling him 'The Spirit of the Fringe' this year. Come on people, that's for the corporate awards committees to decide, not you. He's tired out and dreaming of dangerous balloon rides with derivative double acts. And then his dreams com…
 
RHEFP 2013 #18: Alexei Sayle and David Kay - In a Cupboard with Lembit Opik. Richard has finally committed murder at the Fringe and is wondering if something similar happened to Lady Di (though hopefully no Cif was used then). He's very excited to be chatting to legendary stand-up Alexei Sayle about Carry On Columbus, how he nearly ended up as a Go…
 
RHEFP 2013 #17: Al Murray, Paul Provenza, Sally Anne Hayward - Pissing on Thackeray's Grave. Richard is surprised by a treasure found in his charity bucket and annoyed by middle lane drivers. But he is soon cheered up by a menage a trois with a couple of Muppets, Paul Provenza and Al Murray. What is it acceptable to say on Twitter? Can a joke make …
 
RHEFP 2013 #16: Colt Cabana, Fred MacAulay and Nadia Kamil - Flying Asshole. Richard is annoyed that terrorists have been nicking his ideas for atrocities by considering putting bombs in boobs, but is glad to see that Colin is back so hasn't died (but then is it possible for a ghost to die?). It's a podcast of contrasts with wrestler Colt Cabana di…
 
RHEFP 2013 #15: Ardal O'Hanlon, Terry Alderton and Zoe Lyons - Patrick the Cement Mixer. Richard has lifted out of his fatigue and feels energised and ready to face another podcast and it's a fantastic line-up. First is Terry Alderton who vividly remembers how much Richard enjoyed his 1999 Perrier nominated show (not very much). He discusses his co…
 
RHEFP 2013 #14: Paul Foot, Sean Hughes and Benny Boot - Abattoir. Richard is mildly hungover and grumpy and though he threatens to do 'A Baconface' the show must go on. First up is Paul Foot who talks about Russell Brand, pantomime cows, part of his life flashing before his eyes and the things that he wakes up thinking about that disturb him. Stand…
 
RHEFP 2013 #13: Sarah Millican and Geoff Norcott - Round Three. Richard uses the podcast as an opportunity to send a sincere get well message to an ailing performer and tries to quash the ludicrous Spirit of the Fringe rumours that are being bandied around about him before introducing a woman who is more adversary than guest. They chat about Geordi…
 
RHEFP 2013 #12: Bo Burnham, Milton Jones and Paul Gannon - Deus Ex Machina. Apologies to completists, but the first couple of minutes of today's podcast got lost in a recording malfunction, but only cos Jerry spotted it was recording wrong, so in fact the majority has been saved, rather than a little bit lost. Hopefully from thereon in it's OK as R…
 
RHEFP 2013 #11: Hannibal Buress, Greg Proops and Lost Voice Guy - Imaginary Ocelot. Day 12 of the Fringe and Richard seems to have lost the ability to speak. Which would be a problem if he didn't have such eloquent guests. First up is a jet-lagged (take note Bo Burnham) Hannibal Buress who talks about being a bum, why the actors on Saturday Night L…
 
RHEFP 2013 #10: Michael Legge, David O'Doherty and Felicity Ward - Orangeman's Day. Richard is a bit frazzled and confused as the daily grind of two shows a day starts to take its toll, but a podcast full of comedy talent will revive him. Plus he's just seen Clare Grogan in the street. Michael Legge is back as a last minute replacement for a jet-la…
 
RHEFP 2013 #9: Omid Djalili, Ben Moor and Michael J Dolan - Positivity. Richard is excited by the news of pregnant pandas in Edinburgh zoo and has a suspicion who the father may be, but there's not time to hang around, with two guests who both appeared in the Heath Ledger film, Casanova. First up is the upside-down banana eater and Rich's 2013 flat…
 
RHEFP 2013 #8: Janey Godley, Ashley Storrie and Doug Segal - Hologram Colin. After over a week of the Fringe, Rich is perhaps a little weary, but glad to see some regulars in the front row and to have actual copies of his new DVD, Talking Cock (www.gofasterstripe.com). His guests are mother and daughter stand-ups and podcasters, Janey Godley and As…
 
RHEFP 2013 #7: Ian Lavender, Tony Law and Carey Marx - Molly Sugden's Space Pussy. A week into the Fringe and madness may be descending. An exuberant Tony Law has been celebrating having someone to help him look after his children by making a night of it. And the night might still be going on. It's hard to tell, as he's always like this. But will m…
 
RHEFT 2013 #6: Rory McGrath, Josh Widdicombe and Carly Smallman - Is It Still My Mind? Rich has been to see Adam Buxton and you will find out if he makes good on the promise of a hand job for the flowers. And he has two guests today. First up Josh Widdicombe who has just slightly trapped his hand in a door, but isn't going to make a bid deal about …
 
RHEFP 2013 #5: Susan Calman and Lee Camp - Like Syphoning Petrol. Rich is worried about the loss of his lucky street shoe and that his huge fame will mean he can't walk the streets any more, but Susan Calman is on hand to bring him down to earth with a bump (almost literally). In a highly-charged and flirtatious third date a few lines are crossed, …
 
RHEFP 2013 #4: Brendon Burns, John Lloyd and Keith Farnan - Thistles Up Your Anus. Richard is bamboozled after receiving flowers from a man and the unexpected feelings that has awakened, and on top of that an unexpected double booking has occurred. So two guests for the price of one with Wrestling fan and victim of marsupial abuse, Brendon Burns an…
 
RHEFP 2013 #3: Norman Lovett and Christian Reilly - Colin's Revenge? Richard is reeling from a not really all that near death experience, but luckily Norman Lovett is on hand to provide laconic wisdom and laughs and the kind of honesty that comes with being one of comedy's elder statesmen. There is some frank discussion about Jimmy Savile and what …
 
RHEFP 2013 #2: David Baddiel and Katie Mulgrew - The Queen's Tiny Head. The Fringe is only just up and running and Richard has already has his perceptions turned around by a performer who has made him question the way we all eat bananas. Today's guest is David Bad-eel who is doing his first stand-up show at the Fringe for fifteen years and it's all…
 
RHEFP 2013 #1: Jenny Eclair and Alfie Brown - Urine Teeth. Rich's 22nd Edinburgh Fringe is underway with vandal, novelist, punk poet and reprobate Jenny Eclair as the first guest of the new run. She's a character witness in Cupboardgate with a controversial theory about who was responsible and she's worked with (though not as far as we know 'worked…
 
2012 #19: OMO Sexual - Michael Legge and Jarlath Regan. Richard has a bit more of a spring in his step than he's had for a few days and he's been given a t-shirt by one his potential stalker killers - it's nice that they can give as well as take - and he's enjoying his most recent iTunes review. He's joined by Michael Legge, a man who eschews honey…
 
EPISODE 50: Freaks and Geeks - Rumpel, Orbax and Pepper and Keir McAllister. The Fringe is over and Richard is winding down like a non-Duracell bunny. There's a definite end of term atmosphere and some literal clock-watching, but there's still much to entertain - even if it is mostly visual. Kangaroo King Rumpel returns after last year's bizarre ap…
 
2012 #18: Yorkshire Robin Hood – Al Murray and Celia Pacquola. Richard Herring, the sweaty-backed comedian happy to give piggy-backs to his fans as long as they ask first is on a downward spiral of tiredness and illness, but still trudged down to The Stand to interview Al Murray. He literally has the hardest job in the world. Literally. And he does…
 
2012 #24: Fireworks - Phil Nichol and Tony Jameson. After last year's lost podcast with Phil Nichol, Richard is praying all will work today lest Phil starts to take it personally. Nichol takes us through some of his less successful Fringe shows and how he got involved with acting and pretending to be Terry Gilliam. He's got some stories about spect…
 
2012 #23: Rasputin Beard - Martin Mor and Ro Campbell. Richard has egg all over his trousers, but it's not the result of experimenting with sex with birds after recent cloacal revelations - he's been competing for an Edinburgh trophy at the Malcolm Hardee Awards. Has he finally won something in Edinburgh? ... No of course not. His guest is Martin '…
 
2012 #22: Tokyo Honeymoon - Simon Evans and Lloyd Langford. Richard is showing off because Nicholas Parsons came to see his Talking Cock, but the audience seem unimpressed by his celebrity connections or his attempts to foment an Anglo-Scottish war. Simon Evans is the guest for the first three quarters, but then he has to go to be Prime Minister (i…
 
2012 #21: Monkey Jesus - Nick Doody and Steve Gribbin. Rich is delighted that at last some funny news stories have appeared for him to joke about, like badly restored frescos and Prince Harry's embodied anus, but the audience aren't so sure that he is as funny as he thinks he is despite him having a T-shirt which PROVES he is the 6 star King of Edi…
 
2012 #20: Performers from the Moon - Felicity Ward and Hayley Ellis. Richard is almost better, though he's reeling from the demolition of the Time Gentleman Please pub and from not being on the comedy awards list despite not being eligible. But his guest Felicity Ward (who has only come from Australia - it's not like she travelled through space) is…
 
2012 #17: Wanker's Chariot - Simon Donald and Helen Arney. Richard is still reeling a bit from a late night assault of friendliness and his usual crappy performance at Best Of The Fest, but luckily some of the normal folk have strayed into his den of Morlock-faced comedy fans and he can bully them to make up for it. Comedy legend Simon Donald is on…
 
2012 #16: Weasel Prophylactic - Nick Helm and Jay Foreman. Rich is husky and ill and worrying about the parallels between his life and the fate of Rodney Bewes and trying to live his life vicariously through the life of his audience by fixing up random people based on what they've got in their hair. Colin is back on the front row, which freaks out …
 
2012 #15: Olbas Tissues - Susan Calman and Tiffany Stevenson. Rich is a bit woozy and under the weather today, not sure of where he is and if it is Edinburgh where that is. It must be nearly all over by now right? His guest Susan Calman has kindly given him some Olbas scented tissues, which he becomes unnaturally obsessed with. Both Richard and Sus…
 
2012 #14: New is Old and North is South - Tony Law and Lou Sanders. Richard is resting on his laurels after winning gold at Mark Watson's Edinborolympics for throwing an orange into a bucket whilst wearing another bucket on his head. Tired from the exertion, he's hoping he can take a back seat and get through a day of work without anyone knowing he…
 
2012 #13: (horn noise) Sarah Millican and Pete Johansson. It's like Ross and Rachel all over again. After last year's sexually charged podcast, Sarah Millican returns to fuel the will they/won't they speculation. And Rich, though tired and slightly hallucinating due to lack of sleep is determined to give as good as he gets (with the comedy) as last…
 
2012 #12: F*ck C*nt F*ck - Brendon Burns and Grainne Maguire. Having conquered the world with his 'Who remembers Pacers and Clive Doig?' routines, Rich tries to emulate Michael 'Man Drawer' McIntyre with his new 'lost sunglasses are always found when you buy new sunglasses' bit. But perhaps he feels the need to fill a bit, in case his guest Brendon…
 
2012 #11: O is for Oranges - Janet Ellis and Ahir Shah. Even Rodney Bewes couldn't make this up, Richard is interviewing the woman responsible for his sexual awakening, Janet Ellis. This could get messy. If you're a fan of producers of 1980s kids shows you're going to be delighted by the amount of time Richard wants to talk about Clive Doig and Bid…
 
2012 #10: Have We Got Bewes For You? - Craig Campbell and Helen Keen. Richard met the unLikely Lad Rodney Bewes yesterday and is still trying to work out the fact and fiction of the astonishing things that he revealed. And if Edinburgh ever becomes a deserted wilderness (and it seems to be getting that way if ticket sales are anything to go by) the…
 
2012 #9: Game For a Laugh - Matthew Kelly and Matthew Osborn. Richard is doing his best to keep up his UN appointed peacekeeping activities in the sunshine and his guest is the versatile, bus pass toting actor and presenter Matthew Kelly, who is only two foot high. There's time to chat about Educating Rita, Excavating Rita, Keith Allen, Sir Ian McK…
 
2012 #8: Advice for Flashers - Nina Conti and Christian Reilly. Richard has just seen an 80 year old man running for a bus and it's his highlight performance of the Fringe so far and he's a bit overexcited because his latest DVD 'What is Love, Anyway?' is now available from www.gofasterstripe.com (including the first ever videoed Me1 vs Me2 snooker…
 
2012 #7: Dude Love - Mick Foley and Gavin Webster. Wrestling legend Mick Foley is coming on to the tiny Stand wrestling arena and Richard is determined that only one of them will leave the stage alive. Which is probably foolish of him. But he's had a good life. Rich has some predictions for the Scottish Premier League title and some stuff to say ab…
 
2012 #6: Jimmy Savile's Drawers - Lucy Porter and Markus Birdman. Rich has not been well and low flying jets going over his venue have come close to increasing his laundry bill. But the show must go on and today, at least, the guests have turned up. Lovely Lucy Porter talks about babies, being on the Perrier panel and reveals the most shocking rumo…
 
2012 #5: Burns Baby Burns - Simon Munnery and Mary Bourke. After three days in a row of different audio failures one begins to suspect that the podcast is cursed. Today the desk finally recorded the show without a hitch, but that's not much use when the main guest hasn't shown up. ITV2's Brendon Burns was nowhere to be seen and couldn't be contacte…
