As It Occurs To Me - Series 3, Show 6

As It Occurs To Me - Final Episode. It's the end my friends. It really is. Really, really. But don't cry, just say goodbye, it could be worse. Rich has stories of CJ from Eggheads and Al Qaeda and is unjustly critical of a charity trying to de-worm orphans in Haiti, Emma has the best poo stories to make you sick, Dan is dressed as Adam Ant and Christian is looking forward to next week's show. Will Pippa Middleton's Disembodied Anus survive? Will King Herod make an appearance? Will Andrew...


As It Occurs To Me - Series 3, Show 5

It's the penultimate AIOTM (aiotm) ever and Rich smells like a baker. He has had last week's moral maze punishment hanging over his head (see video extra - but beware once you've seen it you can't un-see it). Emma is back to her scatological best, Dan has been captured by an artist and Christian is worried about the effects of nuclear catastrophes. What will Rich do at Lily Allen's wedding? Who is up to star in Attitudeless Badger? What would the 11 year old Rich think about 43 old Rich...


As It Occurs To Me - Series 3, Show 4

It's Season 3, Episode 4 of AIOTM (aiotm) and Rich and his forearm are regretting allowing the audience to make decisions about what is moral and what is not. He has been working hard on his punishment and is just hoping there is a 14-17 year-old boy who will be prepared to take the fruits (or seeds) of his labour. Dan, Christian and Emma are all lending a hand and together they have created one of the most horrendous comedy props in the whole of history. This show might actually break...


As It Occurs To Me - Season 3 Intro

As It Occurs To Me - AIOTM Autumn Special 1

It's episode 20 and As It Occurs To Me is back for a short autumn run. Richard fears the consequences of being the 21st Century Dustin Gee, but not as much as Stewart Lee should. God is also keeping an eye on the chubby comedian's material and if His representatives on Earth are anything to go by then He doesn't like it. In the meanwhilst Emma has met an iconic TV star, Christian is a rock god and Dan looks like someone's dad, though Ben Elton is not looking like an ah-argh stand up...


As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 8

The final show of the second series and all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But 6 Music is saved and the Bloomsbury is packed to the gills so it's a party atmosphere. Van Morrison has been supporting Christian, Emma is well up the duff, and Dan has been celebrating the fact he can now go to the zoo and not look like a paedo. Rich has almost met Rory from Dr Who and Lembit Opik on the same day, and is taking a pop at God for winging it when he came up with the 10 commandments, which...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 7

It's the penultimate episode of season 2 and the whole country is reeling from the worst spectacle they have witnessed in years, the motorcycle clothing shop sketch. Is there any way back for us now? And is the way back to just keep doing the same sketch until people realise it is a new zenith of comedy? We've moved to the Bloomsbury Theatre because we think we're Virginia Woolf. Emma's been unable to use her new iPhone 4, Dan, who is half German has been praying for England to lose at...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 6

It's the 16th episode of AIOTM (AIOTM), 16 lost weekends of trying to satirise all comedy by producing a comedy show with no comedy in it. According to AM1975. As usual at this stage of the series, Richard is worried he is going mad and drunkenly wonders if he can convince some people who work in a motorcycle clothing shop that he has a motorcycle, to the amusement of only himself. Emma's dad is hanging out in bookshops enjoying his literary fame. Dan is wondering if he can get a laugh out...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 5

Real Andrew Collings has banned any of the Tiny Andrew Collings family from appearing on the show. Will there be anything funny in it? And will they pay any attention anyway? Richard is angry with Dettol and their plans to destroy the world and ITV HD for making him miss the one moment where England looked like they might win the World Cup. But everyone deserves a second chance whether it's fumbling goal keepers or shit broadcasters. Emma is in trouble on Twitter as usual and Dan has...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 4

It's 'As It Occurs to Tiny Andrew Collings' Show 1 and the start of a new world order. But will Rich escape from Northampton and his responsibilities with his new child? Well if he does then he will be discussing the temporary immortality of Betty White, gun laws and how to deal with cold callers. Dan has been eavesdropping on strangers and Emma has been trying to work out what a blowjob is, whilst Christian has been manipulating those who won't do what anyone tells them. But we haven't...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 3

It's the 13th instalment of AIOTM, but that doesn't stop Tiny Andrew Collings appearing on the show, even if his mum would think that was a bad omen. Rich is in deep water for having sworn live on air on 6Music and Emma is showing off about her iPad, whilst Dan would almost certainly prefer to have a baby. Almost certainly. Meanwhile, Christian is up to his ears in rice worries. It's time to find out what Richard's mum makes of his book, to take a good look at Creationism and to daydream...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 2

Richard Herring audaciously attempts to rename five of the seven days of the week, in a way that will make for an easy rhyme to remember them by, but which might make it hard to arrange any actual meetings. His power struggle with double act partners past and present continues, but the real secrets are reserved for those brave souls who endured the heat and missed the football to pay to see the show live. Emma has a story that combines her love of celebrities and her love of poo, Dan...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 1a - Stand-Up Extra

Each week at the live show of AIOTM Richard 'Merring' Herring will be doing an exclusive (usually) unbroadcast set of stand-up material, with as much brand new (or obscure stuff) as it's possible to fit in given the time constraints. You will have to come to the live show to hear it. But this week only, as a super special surprise extra podcast we're releasing the set for FREE! Hear about the sniffing man on the train to Birmingham, how Richard dealt with the oldest heckler he had every...

As It Occurs To Me - Series 2, Show 1

Sony nominated AIOTM (AIOTM) returns for its second series. In show one Richard Merring forms an uneasy coalition and progressive alliance with Dan Tetsell and Emma Kennedy in the hope that they can curb his worst excesses. But it's a spring clean and all the old favourites are being purged. No cumpkins, no Quantum Leap and definitely NO Tiny Andrew Collings (aside: not unless he can somehow sneak his way in). You'll have to listen to find out if Richard made his flight back from the...

As It Occurs To Me - Season 2 Intro

Preview taster of Season 2 of the Sony nominated, Lafta nominated, win nothing podcast As It Occurs To Me, in which Richard Herring reveals he has no idea what the series will begin with... but takes four minutes doing so.

As It Occurs To Me - Show 9

Podcast #9 and Richard is conflicted about whether he should be happy or sad that AIOTM has been nominated for a Loaded Lafta and what this means about his relationship with Jesus. Dan gets an unexpected gift from a stranger, whilst Emma is living in a cold and flooded flat and Christian's mental breakdown seems to be surpassing that of even Herring himself. But while our musician rails against love, Rich is moving in with his girlfriend in order to replace his broken dishwasher and trying...

As It Occurs To Me - Show 8

AIOTM 8 and Richard's mental balance is about as good as Spike Milligan's after ten times as many Goon Shows, Emma has more tales of actresses shitting, Dan has had his child indoctrinated into the Catholic Church and Christian has taken up acting. After a week of just watching Battlestar Galactica and playing Countdown will Richard have anything new to say, or will he rely on ever more ancient callbacks? And what's Scott Bakula up to after his week deep inside a short, fat, Somerset man?...

As It Occurs To Me - Show 7

Show 7 of AIOTM and Richard seems a bit stressed and overworked. Is he OK or is he on a spiralling descent to madness and death? Emma reveals more secrets about mad actresses and Dan worries about the imprint of his boot ending up on his baby's face. Christian encourages Richard to take his own life. Or are those just the voices in Herring's head competing with Carol Vorderman and Richard Whiteley? Rich also meets Neve Campbell and DJ Ironik and considers his life via his video game...

As It Occurs To Me - Show 6

In Show 6 of AIOTM, proceedings have been hijacked by the man from behind Rich in the queue in Waitrose (aiottmbritqiw!) but for how long? Rich reminisces about his childhood, Emma gives the backstage goss from the X Factor, Dan has leg boobs and Christian is being sarcastic about the remit of the show. Has Rich been eating 'man flesh', and will he or a tramp outside the theatre marry a 19 year old in the audience? There's only one way to find out and, err, I think you should do it. Get us...
