His first guest is Edinburgh Comedy Prize nominee Ahir Shah - they chat about Brexit, how looking into the sun proves your strength and wisdom and the older generations disregard for metaphorical ladders.

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 first guest personally knows many of the people that Rich not-so-secretly lusts over at CBeebies - it's Iain Stirling. They chat about working...

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 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...

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 Edinburgh Fringe of the eighties, the point where comedy and tragedy meet, what happens when you become the carer for your comedy partner, what...

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, how to crash a car, having sex with a Dalek (for old time's sake) and how the Stig saved Manford's life. Plus growing up in the Triangle of...

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 time via http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RichardHerring. Simon Donald is the first guest and the discussion turns to what constitutes...

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 (pronounced Ray, apparently) who is on hand to talk about animatronic cats, swearing Scottish children and Larry David's inability to tell a...

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 a long time. It might not be entertaining for you, but Richard is very happy to be there. Also what is it like spending your life looking quite...

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 comedic reinvention, an appearance on Doctors that he had forgotten about and his love of Andy Kaufman. Stand-up from the fabulous Zoe Lyons. Then...

2013 #14: Paul Foot, Sean Hughes and Benny Boot

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-up comes from Benny Boot. And then Sean Hughes chats about his nursing career, his transvestism and his brushes with death and tsunamis. Then...

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 Rich chatted to Milton Jones about whether comedians need writers, Planet Mirth, Celebrity Mastermind and Christianity. Paul Gannon comes on to...

2013 #10: Michael Legge, David O'Doherty and Felicity Ward

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-lagged Bo Burnham (he'll be on the show on Tuesday), chosen as the comedian who is most similar to the YouTube sensation and not because he was...

2013 #09: Omid Djalili, Ben Moor and Michael J Dolan

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 mate Ben Moor. They chat about Keith Allen sabotaging the Oxford Revue 1988, Planet Mirth and stamped on Twixes, before Ben dashes off to...

2013 #07: Ian Lavender, Tony Law and Carey Marx

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 mixing a pumped up Law with a quietly spoken (possibly too quietly spoken to be heard) Ian Lavender cause them to reach the same level or...

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 it. He chats about Million Pound Drop, Tim Lovejoy pretending to be his friend and goes into proper depth on the badger/cow conundrum. And...

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, mostly involving lactation. Find out where to see Calman nude, why the pair spent a cold December day in a flower shop together, how to play...

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 and carrot-chemical obsessive, furniture snob John Lloyd. And the double-header works so well that we might do it more. If you've ever thought...

2013 #03: Norman Lovett, Christian Reilly

More
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 he might have been trying to achieve in those mortuaries, whether Keith Allen can solve the world hunger crisis, what Phillip Schofield likes to...

2013 #02: David Baddiel, Katie Mulgrew

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 about fame (not the musical). Find out if David has any non-famous friends, what it was like doing a TV show with wet-lipped Michael Gove, how...

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 with' Keith Allen), so there's plenty to talk about. With memories of embarrassment and sexual awakening on the Twister mat, reviews for pubic...
