As It Occurs To Me (AIOTM) was a smash-hit sketch show written by Richard Herring and performed in front of a live audience. It ran for three series and was nominated for a Sony Award. It's now back!
||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 6||AIOTM Audio Extra 6: The Tigers Come at Night. It's been on helluva slog, but we're nearly there. And on the final audio extra before the completely different video series begins (hopefully by May 2017), Richard is concerned about tweets from Jeremy Corbyn, who is more popular Morgan or Rowling and why we have a Doomsday clock. There's a moving tribute to one that has fallen and a desperate attempt to milk some more mileage out of half decade old material. And what's in Farage's garage this week. With songs about love and pancakes from the amazing Christian Reilly. Thanks for helping us on this journey. The stuff you've paid for (or not - but you still can http://www.gofasterstripe.com/aiotm) will be on its way asap. And now we rest.

||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 5||AIOTM Audio Extra 5: Hootenanny Lies. It's the penultimate AIOTM of the series, but the videos won't be out for a couple of months at least, so enjoy this bonus topical podcast which predictably is mainly concerned with a piss-covered President elect, but there's also time to cover Last Of The Summer Wine, washing baked bean tins, the return of the naughty dog, and who has the best manoeuvre. And for lover's of Dr Seuss and water sports there is a return for Farage in the Garage. If you want to help us finance the video podcast then head to http://www.gofasterstripe.com/aiotm for merch and secret channel pass, or come and see the final recording on February 12th https://leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873548587.

||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 4||AIOTM Audio Extra 4: Farage in the Garage. It's the AIOTM (aiotm) team's fourth attempt to give you bonus content and try and tempt you down to come and see a show live - https://leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873548587/events or subscribe to the channel of video extras http://www.gofasterstripe.com/aiotm, but is the tactic working or just putting people off? Dan Tetsell is back after his unexplained absence and the team (even producer Ben) have all been given kickstarter t-shirts (there are a few surplus ones available to buy at www.gofasterstripe.com PLUS the Cumpkin Tea Towel - the perfect Christmas gift). There is stuff about who was the real hero in Spartacus, the last person from the 1800s, The Cat in the Hat, Ferrero Rocher, a fitting tribute to a late Anus Arsehole and an amazing TWO Christmas songs from Christian Reilly. Plus the birth of a new cartoon character who is bound to become a perennial Christmas favourite. Itttt's Chriiiiiiissssssssttttttmaaaaas!||12/13/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 3||AIOTM Audio Extra 3: Dan has been mysteriously replaced by Matthew Crosby and everyone is trying to process the week's incredible and terrifying news, and Rich wonders if he can get back to the alternate Universe where Trump got dumped and see how things turned out there. Whilst acknowledging that the President- Elect is unsatirisable (and yes, Rich is saluting him in the photo - he for one welcomes our new bumpkin-overlord), they decide to give it a bit of a go, before moving on to cat death, Thundercats, sex robots and the vagaries of Twitter exchanges. Plus International Men's Day fun with Christian Reilly. The world will never be the same again, so it's reassuring that AIOTM will always be exactly the same.

||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 2||AIOTM Audio Extra 2: Richard's usual plan to write AIOTM at the last minute very nearly comes unstuck, when he is betrayed by the thing that he loves. But somehow he pulls it out the pan (in both senses) and constructs a topical bonus podcast (that is not the same show that you Kickstarted - that will be out in 2017) looking into what happens if you follow the Trump ideal of locker room talk, if it's possible to get away with imaginary murder, and looks at some of the most useless logical reasoning known to man from the Brexit camp on Twitter. Rich also recounts a bizarre coincidence involving Jason Manfordp (pictured), plus there's a song from Christian Reilly and a catch up of what Dan and Emma have been up to. Given the circumstances it's almost impressive.||10/18/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanAIOTM Audio Extra 1||AIOTM Audio Extra 1: Ram-Packed. After 5 years apart, the AIOTM team are reunited and it's like they've never been away. As well as recording the kickstarted video episode of the show (which will be released in 2017) the whacky funsters put together this bonus, topical audio podcast, created under the ridiculous last minute structure of the original series. This is NOT what you paid your kickstarter money for. This one (given we were in the theatre anyway) cost us NOTHING. And it sounds like it. Topics under discussion include Keiths, headphone jacks and poor-taste 9/11 tributes. Christian rallies behind Donald Trump in song and Richard provides his own contribution to the BBC Sitcom celebration. I mean who wants to see old comedy formats put back together years after they passed their sell-by date...? And find out what kind of umpkins the cool kids are interested in in futuristic 2016.||9/12/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Return||AIOTM - the Return. As it Occurs To Me is coming back. We're filming six new episodes that will be released next year. You can buy tickets to see the studio parts of the show being recorded here https://leicestersquaretheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873548587/events - The first one is on September 11th. Aptly. But as well as the six super-duper eps (which will be available as video and audio podcasts), we are going to be doing some mini-audio episodes at each record to whet your appetite. So the first one should be up soon. Resubscribe!||9/6/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanKickstarter Trailer||AIOTM: The New Class??? It's been five years since the AIOTM caravan closed its doors, all the cumpkins and dumpkins and minted cumpkins are mouldering in a corner, Emma and Dan have not had any work since and Christian turns up at the Leicester Square Theatre every Monday night, just hoping. Richard in the meantime has been off writing critically acclaimed plays and living the life of a millionaire bachelor. But due to popular demand (from himself) he has decided to try to bring the podcast back, with all new stuff (mainly) and all on swanky film. But he needs your help. If you'd like us to make six video eps of AIOTM then donate between a pound and five thousand pounds here: www.gofasterstripe.com/kickstarter In the meantime enjoy this skit, which you can also see on video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k60IYgcH86s||3/16/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 6||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 Collins say 'aside' or make an appearance in real life? Will Rich have to take the cumpkin-based punishment prescribed by last week's Moral Maze or does he have some kind of revenge planned for the dark and mysterious forces that make the ethical decisions? I don't know, why don't you just listen to the podcast? All I can tell you is that tears or some kind of bodily fluid will be spilled before the show is over. As much as we travel in time, can we truly change our fates? It's properly the end folks. Thanks so much for your support or your 1 star iTunes reviews. It's been fun. Apart from the pain and mental illness.||6/19/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 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 below - 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 (pictured) 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 getting an email from Francoise Pascal? How can the moral maze top last week's punishment? Only one way to find out!||6/12/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 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 some laws. And if it doesn't then one of the weirdos in the audience definitely has. Rich had been trying to impress his girlfriend's parents and is coping with the stress of getting into the exclusive after show area at the Jerry Seinfeld gig on Friday. Emma has taken out a superinjunction on herself, Dan has been licking things in public and Christian has been recognised in a toilet in Ipswich. Perhaps foolishly there is another Moral Maze with even more dire consequences for Rich, Pippa Middleton's Disembodied Anus, and the return of an old favourite up to his old duplicity. Christian is up in arms about Britain's Got Talent, but not the stuff that's bothering anyone else. Plus there's the first real screw up of the 26 episodes we've done so far and we don't edit so we've just got to deal with it. Seriously, it is the 21st Century. WARNING: if you download this show you might end up on a register.||6/5/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3 Stand-Up Extra||Secret stand-up. As a special once-in-a-series treat, here's this week's exclusive 40 minute set from Richard, which usually you can only get to hear if you come to the show or buy a special CD. Richard chats with the audience, makes inappropriate suggestions to women half his age, reads some of his teenage poetry, does a potential routine for his new show What is Love, Anyway? for the first time ever live on stage, and revives the classic routine 'Give Me Head, til I'm Dead'. But there's plenty of adlib fun with the audience and a routine about odd bits of facial hair that maybe should have been in the proper podcast.||6/1/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 3||It's the 25th episode of AIOTM (aiotm) and the silver jubilee is marked with a new 'umpkin'. If you think it's cumpkins or dumpkins then you have to get with it grandad! And Rich has more than half an eye on the listeners of the future. He has also become disturbed by the Canadian couple who won't reveal the sex of their baby (is it as disturbing as Baby Massage? The babies seem to think so) and has been recognised in Amsterdam airport (but who has he been recognised as?).Emma is gate-crashing literary festivals and Dan has been enjoying some odd time with his family, whilst Christian may be close to being friends with the actual factual Lembit Opik. The audience for once come good and provide some spectacular tales of stuff that has occurred to them. This week's Moral Maze has to be heard to be believed and has consequences that could only have been predicted by the strangest person on earth, but demonstrates why the public should not be allowed to make decisions about anything of any importance. One of the characters has written a diary and Richard is halfway through the series without having had a nervous breakdown, but it can't be far off. Some of the accents in this show will make Cheryl Cole seem like the voice of 1950s BBC. And if Dan Tetsell gives you a cucumber, don't eat it. It's the longest AIOTM (aiotm) yet and maybe the funniest and you will learn things about penis enlargement that you might not want to know. But it'd be even funnier if you'd come and seen it live. People came from America, Mumbai and Salisbury to see this show.||5/29/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 2||Series 3, Show 2 and somehow we've survived the Rapture, which has ruined Rich's plan to not write a script. We have a visit from a President and a future mayor and somebody's disembodied anus and from someone who would have made more of an impact had the news not somehow overtaken the show. I knew it was written too far in advance. Emma is worried about her parents, Christian pleased that his songs are being put to video and Dan is back, unsure what the worst thing about losing his child might be. There's another absorbing moral maze and Rich is also trapped in a toilet with a lake of piss. Business as usual.||5/22/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 3, Episode 1||It's Series 3 Episode 1 and one of the regular cast has gone missing, but there are super injunctions and conspiracy theories flying around as to where he or she might be. Plus since the last show Richard has won an award and lost at Mastermind and had to address whether he is real or imaginary. The nation is obsessed with certain parts of Pippa Middleton, but how far and how specific will this obsession be allowed to get? And what will happen if the cast revisit the Oxford Revue of 1988 and the ghosts that still haunt them? Were they funny then? Are they funny now? And in a new feature we lose ourselves in the moral maze to find out the ethics of floor Quavers. We also dare to reveal the truth about the super injunctions that other outlets will only do anonymously. Ah, it's good to be back. Really. Nearly all good. Guest starring Ben Moor.||5/15/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean2010 Specials - Episode 3||We've made it to episode 22, but will we get any further. And are the dark secrets of the twisting and turning Lost-style over-arching plot about to be revealed? Or will we just make far too much of the first birthday of the cumpkin? And did Rich take the lunch marmalade millions? Emma has tales of the 1970s and groping, whilst Dan reveals the singular of paparazzi and Christian has been the victim of crime. Richard's writing process is the subject of a soul searching documentary and he also looks forward with fear to his forthcoming appearance on Celebrity Mastermind, whilst looking back at his romantic trip to Prague, with deluxe clocks and cloacas all on view. Ultimately Richard may be about to discover the very meaning of (or lack of) his existence? Is this the end? For AIOTM and for Stephen Fry's Twitter account? If only we could turn forward time.||11/1/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean2010 Specials - Stand-Up Extra||SURPRISE! No AIOTM (AIOTM) this week, but in its place we've giving you Richard's exclusive and largely improvised secret stand-up set from the recording of Autumn Special 2. Every week at the live recordings there is a 40 minute stand-up set that you won't (usually) get to hear on the podcast. In this podcast you will hear for the first time ever, the full letter that Richard sent to the Vatican when he applied to be Pope, plus his teenage poem about Mrs Turner and a story of how he became a victim of a mild gypsy curse. Anglo-German relations also receive a severe blow and we find out how David Hasselhoff was almost disfigured in 1989. Plus there's some material about Alan Sugar that got dropped from the main show and then went annoyingly well and made Rich wish he'd left it in. Hope you enjoy it and we'll be back with the final show of the year (and maybe ever) next week.||10/24/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean2010 Specials - Episode 2||It's AIOTM XXI and although one God is dead, many others are still going strong and the cast are looking forward to their history being revealed in the forthcoming movie, The Social Leper. Rich is a safer driver thanks to a trip to Ipswich, Christian is sticking up for the monkeys, Dan has found his embarrassing University essays and Emma's poo stories prompt the audience to reveal all kinds of fecal embarrassment. There's a surprising job move for Rich and we're all celebrating the miners' safe return (well most of them) and decrying the emissions of taxi drivers and the marmalade based advertising of once respected broadcasters. Business as usual for what might be the penultimate episode of AIOTM. EVER!||10/18/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean2010 Specials - Episode 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 comedian. Strangers are wanting to marry off Rich and his non-imaginary girlfriend and she may be up for it, even if Rich has been watching porn films 'for research'. Plus there's been some unseasonable behaviour for early October and a big surprise about one of the country's favourite sceptics. All in all it's good to be back. Hope you agree!||10/11/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean2010 Specials - Edinburgh||What a ludicrous idea. In a Fringe where Herring is already performing 36 shows in 26 days, what would possess him to write an hour of stand-up and sketches about what he has been up to? Utter lunacy. Christian didn't got to bed til 6am by which time Richard was up and furiously typing at his keyboard to bring you stories of ghosts in the swimming pool, the Pride of Scotland and how he is more Scotch than a significant proportion of Edinburgh residents. Emma is fascinated with caterpillars and not in a cute way and Dan has been watching some experimental theatre involving birdlife and faeces. Whilst the spectre of Richard Herring might hang over Andrew Collings' solo show, there is an elephant in this packed and chandeliered room which is at least reminiscent of Collings. With Haribo coming out of their eyeballs how will the sleep deprived cast cope with this early start? And who is the most Scotch character on their roster of freaks? You might be surprised by the answer.||8/16/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 8||The final show of the second series and all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But 6Music 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 Doctor 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 seems a bit hypocritical given the way Rich puts this show together. Infants will be born, but will they be slaughtered? And disenchanted characters will return to wreak their revenge, but which ones will turn up? No one could ever guess they will guess, it's obvious. Is it s**t or is it good? It doesn't matter. All that counts is that it is over. For now. And it's time for a party around Richard's belly button. Thanks for listening. See you again in August for the Edinburgh special!||7/4/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 football (so blame him) and Christian has been signing boobs because he is rock and also roll. We pull out the stops to annoy Bob Rudge and take a leaf out of the book of the lazy writers of My Two Dads. Blah blah blah Tiny Andrew Blah and we meet the odd daughter and dad from the Vodaphone adverts and eat the crumbs from out of God's kitchen bin, and what's going on with the high-backed armchair? It's repetitious and relies on stupid comedy voices and Rich has become everything he hates. But come in and join us, the cumpkins are lovely. And there's some stuff about football too.||6/27/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 of the King Herod bit that was written five minutes before the recording started, and Christian - whose guitar breaks just in time for his song - has a fine suggestion on how to solve the financial crisis. We're also trying to pull down the statues in Trafalgar Square, wondering how Richard has maintained a 20 year career in comedy when he knows no jokes, suggesting a new commentator for the World Cup, and considering if we should all have taken some cocaines to get some much needed publicity for the show. The real questions are: did Rich think the motorcycle thing was funny, or did he write it on purpose so the end would work? And does he have a high-backed armchair? Cos if he does, what other rumours will be true?||6/20/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 s**t broadcasters. Emma is in trouble on Twitter as usual and Dan has joined the iPhone revolution at the most ridiculous time possible. Tam Dalyell is on hand to congratulate the English and Kriss Akabussi gets a booty call. The audience are the filthiest and most depraved thus far, but into the 'As It Occurs To Me concept'. And I wouldn't like to be Matthew the Gospel writer once this has gone out. It's revenge time for him making King Herod look like a dick. And who has Richard been mistaken for? Antony Worrall Thompson? Oh for f**k's sake. Push me in a river now. And leave me with my rats. Or bats. Or cats.||6/13/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 b*****b is, whilst Christian has been manipulating those who won't do what anyone tells them. But we haven't won any BAFTAs even if half of Lionel Nimrod's Inexplicable World have done so. Maybe it's cos we want to throw toddlers into ponds. If nothing else you're about to find out who Tiny Mrs Collings is. And hopefully the furious back pedaling will save The Collings & Herrin Podcast. Or make the tension much worse. Please tweet Rich and make sure he hasn't been crucified in a basement though!||6/6/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 about what it might be like to pretend to be Tam Dalyell. And if you don't like any of this stuff then it's Sue's fault. Always best to blame your peers.||5/30/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 wishes he was in Flight Of The Conchords and Christian takes on Billy Bragg and Gil Scott-Heron ensuring that the Venn Diagram of who understands which jokes in the show gets ever more complicated. Meanwhile Rich is a victim of more crime and is hoping elves will write the script so he can sit out in the sun, finally, just once before he dies. It's all post-post-post-post-post modern, which actually makes it quite old-fashioned in places. England won 3-1 by the way.||5/23/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2 Stand-Up Extra||Each week at the live show of AIOTM, Richard 'Merring' Herring performed 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. 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 encountered, his work on the 1990 West London phone book and Jesus' least successful parable about how birds don't need tables. With special appearances by the Reverend Peter Organ, the potentially incestuous twins, the blue-tit trapping care worker and Royston Vasey. It's surprisingly good given Richard went on stage with little or no idea how he was going to fill the time.||5/20/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 2, Episode 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 island of Cornwall in time for the show (aside: he did), if the show won any awards (aside: it didn't), and if anything amusing has happened to Tetsell in the last five months (aside: it hasn't, though he does nearly fall asleep at one point in the show, due to the rigours of being a father to a young baby). Is Richard super famous in Liverpool? What is worse than finding five men's sperm in your jack o' lantern? And can a man ever truly be in love with a lift if they are speaking different languages? And what will happen if we say we're going to blow Robin Hood Airport sky high? We might have to wait to find out about that last one. Who cares anyway when Christian Reilly is on an impossible mission to sort out the Greek economy? It's brilliant (aside: it's not. It's s**t).||5/16/2010||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 10||The final episode of AIOTM, but will it be the last ever? Rich is being haunted by ghosts of podcasts past and future and wondering if he has had a wonderful life. Dan is aiming for a Christmas number 1 and Emma is walking a marathon. Plus it's sold out, so there should be some sexy action or revealing of genital assemblages. And thank God that people are getting cathedrals slammed into their face and people are stealing our 8 and a half week old material. Will Andrew Collings finally be in the show? Of course he fracking won't! But every slightly successful character from the series will certainly be back!||12/13/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 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 to sabotage Andrew Collings' career, even if success will only be a Pyrrhic victory. The world meanwhile goes crazy about Kay, Subo and the death of a rat and all we can do is quote Matthew 6 at it and hope that makes things better. All this is made harder by having to follow Stewart Lee who is clearly superior to us in every way. But has he been nominated for a Loaded Lafta? No, he hasn't. There's another reason for him being the best.||12/6/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 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? Oh grow up. Luckily the 9 year-old Herring comes to the rescue with tales of The Thriling Three and we're going to rip Andrew Collings a new arsehole (or "a hole" as he might insist on calling it). Him and anyone else we suspect of being a Cylon. Death to Tiny Tim!||11/29/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 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 purchases. And he's competing with Peter Kay in the charity / self promotion interface. And that's just the half of it. Stop reading this and listen to the bloody thing. Oh boy!||11/22/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 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?||11/15/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 5||Show 5 of AIOTM is an offensiveness special. Rich gives his definitive thoughts on where the boundaries of comedy lie and decides the only way forward is to become more offensive. Along the way we discover too much about cumpkins, Keith Chegwin's cock, Emma Kennedy's grandad, Dan Tetsell's hatred of personalised novels, Christian Riley's live of dinosaur rock, and experience Richard's second great yoghurt based masterwork. It's quite a good one. Hope you don't view it as a slap in the face. But if you don't, you're clearly not a genuine comedy fan!||11/8/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 4||Episode 4 of AIOTM is a Halloween special. Rich speculates that his comedy might be written by aliens, whilst Emma talks about the rats in her tree. Dan admits that his skills as an impressionist are limited, and Christian has been having some troubles at an agricultural college. With guests including AA Gill, Derek Acorah and the ghost of Michael Jackson. It's spooktacular, isogamous, and supports the postal strike with some reservations.||11/1/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 3||In the 3rd episode of As It Occurs To Me, Richard is fighting illness and fascism, Dan makes astonishing revelations about his Nazi heritage, Emma's filthy mouth continues to spout obscenities, and Christian is drinking bitter with his baby. DickIbegyourpardonNick Griffin gets even more coverage and Bonnie Greer gets a marriage proposal. It's the longest podcast yet and arguably the best on so far. And you can't get swine flu from it as long as you weren't in the theatre.||10/25/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 2||In the second episode of As It Occurs To Me, the audience is in danger of being swept away in a gigantic balloon, we get celebrity endorsements from Jan Moir, Jenson Button and Leona Lewis, we find out how people are prejudiced against people that they wrongly assume are racist and Rich reveals his strange Nando's paranoia and his unusual linguistic diet.||10/18/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSeries 1, Episode 1||In the first episode of As It Occurs To Me, Richard discusses his week which includes a visit to Berlin to find out about David Hasselhoff's potential to solve all the world's problems, Snow White's 8th and 9th dwarves, Emma Kennedy's audition for Mamma Mia, Dan Tetsell nearly being sick on his baby, Channel 5 turning into an exploitative casino and how the ghost of Stewart Lee haunts him in his dreamscape. It's a solid start, but things can only get better. Surely.||10/11/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
