Retro RHLSTP 24 - Mark Addy

#24 Sean Bean's Pound Shop Subterfuge - Richard proves he is down with the cool kids by chatting to his teenage fans about skateboards and exams before introducing a man who is at home driving a Bronto-crane as he is befriending a talking snowman as he is having a friend who travels through time and gets off with Samantha Mumba whilst he waits around in Victorian London twiddling his thumbs, it's bona fide Hollywood superstar Mark Addy. Will he live up to Richard's hopes and be as nice and down-to-earth as he appears to be on screen or will it all go a bit Game of Thrones? There are some great insights into how he was persuaded to do some of his films, what happens when you go to a pub with your name, what it must be like to be in Chris Rock's posse, and how Sean Bean gets cheap shampoo. Tales of a good York boy in Hollywood and the craziness of LA and the dangers of auto-fellatio and how he ended up playing Hercules. York is the best! SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 349 - Tim Key

#349 timkey- Richard’s son is a chip off the old block, though Richard is upset that Lego has introduced things that are chips instead of blocks. His guest is University fraud Tim Key. The pair compare garments before Richard suggests a radical rebrand for the actor/comedian, teases out the story of how Tim got into the Cambridge Footlights, and how Tim’s poet character developed. Plus a fascinating discussion on what it is like to work alongside your childhood comedy hero (not Richard as it turns out), how Tim physically injured Richard and his inspirational gift to make up for it, who is the fastest over long distances and whether snow is frozen water.

RHLSTP 347 - The Parapod

#347 A Bag of Sausage Rolls - Richard is concerned about a doppelgänger who is out there somewhere claiming to be him (and whether it might be him) and why the fraud has such a paucity of ambition and his son has some unexpected good news. His guests are Ian and Barry from the Parapod podcast and MOVIE! They chat about how to turn a podcast into a feature film, the alternate universe where the script of a Disney film is slightly different, how foolish Barry sold a money making idea for 10p and how he met his own doppleganger in a wood and why Tenable makes Richard feel sick.

#21 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 the wonderful comedy genius James Acaster. They discuss how hot chocolate is not a flavour, sky diving in slip-ons, the dangers of eating chicken nuggets for a bet, the behind-the-scenes disaster that happened on the Conan show, how a rubbish ghost train was made more scary, shooting Private Pike in the face, crashing cars and the ace sitcom We The Jury.

RHLSTP 346 - Bob Mortimer

#346 RETRACTO! - After four years Richard has noticed a hubristic plaque at his local cricket pitch and is gunning for North Herts District Council - they will regret crossing him. His guest is a return of the number 1 RHLSTP guest and number 2 human being (after Michael Palin) Bob Mortimer. There’s so much fun including the benefits of coiling like a snake, the mystery of the tiny sink, retractable genitalia, the magic of having your heart touched, the wisdom that comes from a brush with death, an emergency joke book, why Bob is a fish who has been put back in the water, Bob’s part in Jarvis Cocker’s showdown with Michael Jackson and the Hells Angel Farmer who shagged his way to making Bob a comedian. And so much more. I could not recommend Bob’s book more. It’s fabulous and magical.

#20 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 Edinburgh Fringe of the eighties, the point where comedy and tragedy meet, what happens when you become the carer for your comedy partner, what happens if you never wash your clothes, the Doug who became a diplomat, how [Jerry Sadowitz] (https://www.comedy.co.uk/people/jerry_sadowitz/) terrorised the public, and curing rectal cancer. Sorry the first minute or so got lost, but I have attempted to recreate it (and it was nothing of any worth).

His guest is comedy legend and parrot joke expert Barry Cryer. Barry reminisces about the many stars he’s worked with over the 60+years of his incredible career including Bob Hope, Graham Chapman, Kenny Everett and basically any big name comedian you can think of. Plus Morecambe and Wise’s views on Monty Python, what it was like doing comedy in between nude tableaux, Tony Hancock’s ashes, the delight of getting a birthday joke from Uncle Baz, the joy of spoonerisms and some first rate swearing from the 86 year old honorary gay man with the perfect smokescreen.

She has the requisite disdain for the emergency questions and Richard's foolishly competitive nature and there are fun chats about her attempts to make a porn film, how she faced up to and exposed some weirdo funeral crashers, who puts the bins out in the Coren Mitchell household and how different the Universe might have been if Richard had realised that there was a possible flirtation beneath their first ever meeting. Richard also considers the Universe in which he now has £4 million and Victoria has some good advice about gambling. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

His guest this week is the Rod Hull faced comedian James Acaster. You will find out what it's like to survive three car crashes and two train derailments, how much you could expect to earn selling slurpies in Kettering in the 1990s and what it is that draws the police to conspiracy theorists. Acaster also completely Mitchells the new emergency question. But has he ever seen a Bigfoot? You'll have to wait until the end of the podcast to find out. But it's unlikely I reckon.

It's a battle to see who will say the most inappropriate thing, but for once Richard is given a run for his money as the pair discuss the facts about Tourettes, the positive effects in terms of creativity, the gatekeeper of the brain and what it's like to be able to inadvertently create brilliant emergency questions. Plus discussion of the new Leicester Square Theatre Stair Robot (which is a real thing, though in this conversation it is sometimes tricky to tell fact from fiction), why not-yet-disabled people are so idiotic and self-defeating when it comes to access and equal rights in general and who it is who needs to a magic drug to cure them.

Retro RHLSTP 16 - Richard Osman

#16 Desert Island Dicks - Richard has been considering his own mortality after a visit to Highgate Cemetery, realising that one day he himself might die. But it's unlikely. So let's sniff Dicks whilst the sun shines and we have the biggest Dick so far in the series (though not the biggest guest) with host of Two Tribes and Pointless, Richard Osman. Rich pitches all manner of TV shows to the highly successful TV producer, who seems unimpressed (even with Goodnight Goodnight Sweetheart Sweetheart. You'll also find out what was with Prize Island, who won the World Cup of Chocolate (also what is the best crisps and chew) and Rich's performance on Pointless is roundly mocked. And in a segment that is bound to have a Sachsgate style repercussion on all internet programming, Richard Osman is very rude about Richard's mum, Barbara Herring, who has done nothing wrong, but point out a gross error made by the Egghead presenter (sorry he doesn't present that sh ow) SUPPORT THE SHOW!

Retro RHLSTP 15 - Michael Sheen

#15Rich has come back from his holiday for this and why wouldn’t he? But will his guest turn up this time? The bad news, if he doesn’t, is that Nish Kumar is ill... there’s no jeopardy here, obviously he turns up or there’d be no podcast. The guest is the fantastic UFOologist Michael Sheen. The pair discuss why the best bit has been missed out of the new War of the Worlds, how Michael would get inside Richard, finding out you’re not in a film when you get to the premiere, the big questions raised by the film Passengers and whether its worth having a robot with no downstairs, a missed Pointless opportunity and an audacious quiz show plan and what motivated Sheen’s decision to reconnect with his childhood home of Port Talbot. It’s funny, interesting with a strong homoerotic charge. Plus they talk about Tron. What more do you want? SUPPORT THE SHOW!

His guest the incredibly youthful Robin Askwith. They chat about working with giant gorillas, Oliver Reed in a fishtank, imaginative schoolboy pranks, getting shagger’s block on the Confessions films, the positive impact of a childhood illness and how in another time Robin might have been a stand up (and how he’s making up for lost time).

#14In A Round Hole - Richard has just returned from Vienna, burdened with ice-cream disappointments and further worries about his wife's insensitive choice of cheese. But he's got a blinding guest to cheer him up, a man who has appeared in the triumvirate of sci-fi classics, but that won't mean anything until he's learned to jaunt, Simon Pegg. They discuss what Tom Cruise is really like, the pressures of being a godfather to a superstar baby, playing pranks and throwing up on the set of Star Trek, what it's like working with your teenage film star crush, time-travel cock rings, Ben Dover's merchandise and Richard suggests a new sitcom which might provide an opening for the return of Spaced. It probably won't though. And Richard dares to ask Simon what he himself considers his worst film. There could be fireworks! SUPPORT THE SHOW!

#13Pathetic - Richard is very excited to meet the man who made him give up viewing porn (temporarily), Groove is in the Heart dancer and park ranger Louis Theroux. With a bad choice of words Richard almost Merchants the podcast early on and the interviewer becomes the interviewee as Herring gets Therouxed and opens up about his pre-marital life. Will he be the subject of one of Louis’ future documentaries? Can there be a more insulting thing to happen to a person given the broken people he generally focuses on. Louis’ interview with Jimmy Savile is analysed in depth. Should he have spotted the monster lurking beneath the surface? Plus revelations about fagging for Nick Clegg, the bullying of Max Clifford and having your bits ripped off by a chimp. It’s a fascinating 90 minute chat, more serious than usual, but still very funny. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

The pair discuss the rivalry and tensions in the world of classical music, what a post-Brexit Thick Of It might look like, the death of Stalin, how Veep was created, what you can find in the houses of former Tory ministers, and how close Iannucci came to being trampled by a hippo.

In what is one of Rich's favourite ever RHLSTPs the chat encompasses whether a vegan can eat a ham hand, how a six foot tall penis man would cope with his terrible life, what it's like to be part of a younger generation of comedians who are about to storm the comedy citadel and claim their rightful crown, and why there should be more women on Would I Lie To You?.
