Please Welcome a Man
Who doesn’t understand why he’s in Bilston Town Hall.

Cool Kids
I was hanging around Bilston Craft Gallery earlier today. It’s the largest dedicated craft venue in the West Midlands, I don’t know if you know that. I was from Liam from One Direction; he was hanging around. He’s from Wolverhampton.

Emergency Questions

What was the weirdest reason you ever skived off school?

I was a head prefect, yeah, so it doesn’t… yeah. Oh, I have got an answer to that but it’s so bleak I’m not going to mention it.

What is the unhappiest animal you’ve ever seen in a zoo?

Did you know that – I’ve got a very – Did you know that there’s a zoo in Dudley? I mean, what… You’re allowed to slag off Dudley. I mean, imagine being a lion in a beautiful jungle in India – Are there lions in India? Africa? – And ending up in Dudley? Imagine that happening to you. The only school trip we ever had was to Dudley Zoo, or once we went to the sewage works. I remember I took a clothes pin and put it on my nose and got detention for it. I think of that visit every day; every time I flush the… because the things you see. It’s not just the shit. It’s like the generation game down there. People throw cuddly toys, crockery… Yeah, people throw plates down the toilet. They do, don’t they? I don’t think [zoos] are nice for kids anymore. I think they’re intrinsically bleak. And the one in Dudley is the bleakest of all. You know, I’ve blocked it all out. I only have memories of the sewage works. They have everything though, I think.

Who is your favourite hometown celebrity?

*Audience member shouts Jas Mann’s name.* Jas Mann, the guy from Babylon Zoo? Thanks, yes. Yeah, Jas Mann, the guy from Babylon Zoo. They had the one-hit wonder, Spaceman? And his mum goes to the same temple as my mum. Connections.

Recorded at the Bilston Town Hall as part of the Wolverhampton Literature Festival.

SS reveals that this is the second time he and RH have met, the first time being at a friend’s wedding.

In order to make up for the fact that this recording does not take place at the Leicester Square Theatre, RH says that the acronym stands for Richard Herring’s “Lovely Super” Theatre Podcast.
