RHLSTP 251 - Francesca Stavrakopoulou

E#251 Christ, the Child Killer - Richard is a the Corn Exchange in Exeter, a town famous for the the most comical suicide bomb of all time. And Richard is talking religion with Biblical scholar, Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou. They try to ascertain who wrote the Bible, what Jesus got up to in the bits that didn’t make it into the book, whether anyone in the Bible actually existed, whether gods have genitalia, if God was married, why Eve was Adam’s second wife, whether being a woman or an atheist is a bigger handicap for a Biblical scholar and why St Paul had the wrong idea about sex during the Apocalypse. Plus the logistics of Noah’s Ark and the craziest bits in the Bible. Check out Francesca’s book “God: An Anatomy”, fully illustrated. Yup, even that bit. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 251 - Francesca Stavrakopoulou

RHLSTP 250 - John Kearns

E#250 CBE? - Back to the Winchester Theatre Royal for the second week running and Richard is annoyed at his child’s teacher’s money-making schemes. His guest was also the final guest of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe run where Richard tried to run the podcast into the ground (dare he do it again?) it’s John Kearns. It’s a giddy and self-indulgent podcast where most of the material is deemed too shoddy or contentious for broadcast, but takes in a possible return for a much-loved comedy hero, the possible return of Top Coppers, the leap of faith required to follow your comedy path, tracing Raymond Briggs, disappointing children at the Science Museum and whether John will be getting a lift home. It’s weird, it’s wonderful and it feels like the birth of an amazing, awkward, intergenerational double act. If you enjoy it half as much as Richard seems to then you should have a good time.

RHLSTP 249 - Ahir Shah

E#249 Sexy Borg Queen - We’re at the Winchester Theatre Royal and Rich is blaming the city for the loss of one of our greatest authors. His guest is the comedy Doogie Howser Ahir Shah. They discuss how politics will have changed between the recording and broadcast of this podcast, the sexiness of evil, Percy Pigs as an antidote to terror, perpetually burning coffee shops, being accused of plagiarism by the UK’s grumpiest comedian, the possibility that Richard is Ahir’s dad and whether a violent uprising is the only hope for the Millennials. Plus the return of some old favourite emergency questions. See Ahir on tour http://ahirshah.com/ SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 248 - Nick Frost

E#248 Lock Keepers - Richard had so much fun at the Richmond Theatre that he’s come back again. Sure he’s wearing the same clothes, but a week has gone by and that’s plenty of time to do laundry and dry-cleaning. His guest this week is first series of RHLSTP hero Nick Frost. They chat about Nick’s amazing, if rather sad autobiography https://www.amazon.co.uk/Truths-Half-Little-White-Lies/dp/1473620880/, how his mother took on the boys who bullied Nick (and their mum), a night out with Quentin Tarantino,comeuppance for terrible aeroplane passengers, ghosts, acceptable positioning in a Human Centipede, sharing a single bed with Simon Pegg, punching walls, why Captain Pugwash the movie is unlikely to be made and making a tree famous. It’s a more serious chat than last time, with a remarkable and thoughtful guest who has been through more tragedy thanyou might have imagined. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 247 - Tape Face

E#247 A Spice Girl Broke My Toilet Seat - Rich has had his lactose tolerant choices mocked at the supermarket again, but he will rise above it as he comes to posh old Richmond Theatre to talk to Sam Wills aka Tape Face. They discuss the bizarre world where a child stalked a clown, how to clip through a tennis racquet, the accidental discovery of the character and who thought it up, the gamble of going on a talent show and how it might have just paid off, living and working in Las Vegas, taking props through airport security and the controversy over the cloning of Tape Face. Plus the best kind of tape to use and instructions on how to apply it to your mouth. Richard realised his Boss Cat error after this recording, but to be fair the audience were given the chance to correct him and failed him, so it’s their fault. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 246 - Jayde Adams

E#246 Gurt Lush - Richard is back in Bristol and surprised at some of the refurb choices apparently made at the SS Great Britain. His guest is the gorgeous force of nature that is Jayde Adams. They chat about the genius of Michael Barrymore, the world of competitive dance. officiating weddings in an inflatable church, Amazon Prime specials, finding comedy in tragedy, working class feminism, why it’s polite to your audience to try and do a good show and how comedians can still shock and surprise. It’s an extraordinary interview from a brilliant comedian in a city that has a lot to be proud about. SUPPORT THE SHOW!

RHLSTP 245 - Mark Olver

E#246 Dual? - Richard is back at the Bristol Old Vic and is just happy to be no longer in Leicester, but what is Bristol famous for? You’ll find out. His guest is legendary Bristol comedian Mark Olver. He discusses how his dad failed to catch a bungee jumper, living with Bristol’s most famous comedians, his move into TV Warm Up and his favourite ever Pointless (non-) player, how he has to carry on performing through vomit, horses and injury, how his birthplace has nothing going for it apart from ice cream and how best to describe the low-point of Richard’s career. A brilliantly entertaining hour from one of Bristol’s most modest sons, with a lot of material that will appeal to people who live within the environs of the city and are particularly interested in the road works of September 2019.

RHLSTP 244 - Lucy Beaumont

E#244 The Marx Brothers - Rich is back at Hull City Hall for his last RHLSTP recording of 2019 and he has had an accidental slip off the wagon. But does it count? His guest is Hull’s finest comedian and wonderful oddball, Lucy Beaumont. They discuss appearing on Crimewatch, being used as a crow stepping-stone, waking you to find biscuits on your head, whether Olly Murs is nice than Russell Brand, becoming a cleaner at the place you went to University, getting drunk at the Hootenanny, collecting lost body parts in Harrods, the real size of Arnold Schwarzenegger, past life regressions, what Hullenzians put on their chips and why Hull is the best city in the world.

RHLSTP 243 - Grace Petrie

E#243 Is Leicester Sh*t? - A week has passed, the costume change proves it, but Richard is back at the Haymarket Theatre in Leicester and still fuming about the bones that he believes are rightfully his. Never mind, local resident and inexpert quizzer Grace Petrie is here to convince him that Leicester is actually all right, despite all evidence to the contrary. They discuss how she accidentally became a protest singer, how it’s ultimately a good thing that her industry can’t box her up, the universality of teenage angst at school dances, the inspiring Hannah Gadsby, how social media is amazingly not the best place to have discussions about human rights and how to get around swearing on Radio 2.
