Please Welcome a Man
Who’s tripping off his nuts on no sleep.
Richard Herring’s Lambanana Spit-Roasting Telethon Podcast
I was hanging out in Penny Lane the other day, funny enough, talking with the Beatles. Chatting to a barber showing photographs of every head he’s had the pleasure to know. I said, “What? You’ve taken a picture of every head who’s ever come in here? That’s a bit weird, isn’t it?” He said, “No, it’s just selection of photos to show what haircuts they could have.”

Who’s the most surprising famous person you’ve been in a lift with? And which I mean, you can’t have gotten into the lift with them; they had to be in the lift you were in.
Brad Pitt. Had a drink with – well, you know when you say I had a drink with Brad Pitt – I mean, I was in the same hotel, same lift, went out, we got to the same bar and I just pretended afterwards that I was chatting to him; I wasn’t. Yeah. He’s absolutely gorgeous. I felt like, oof, God. I had a bit of a turn when I saw him. He’s taller than you think. He’s beautiful. I wanted to lick his face.
If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?
The Mona Lisa. Just because I look like her when I haven’t got my eyebrows on. When I went to the Louvre to see it, I was embarrassed to ask people where it was because, you know what I mean, “Where is it? You know?” *RH notes that the painting is actually not that impressive.* Yeah, and you go, that thing of the eyes following you around. Well, any painting does that if they’re looking at you while you – I paint. I love painting, yeah. *RH asks whether KR is as proficient as Leonardo da Vinci.* No, but I do love painting. And I do love paintings. And I do love the Walker Art Gallery. Fantastic art gallery.
Have you ever seen a ghost?
No. Don’t believe in them. Don’t believe in them. […] No, it’s daft. Daft; I don’t believe in that sort of thing.
If you could have a hand made of ham or an armpit that dispensed sun cream, which would you prefer?
*Audience cheers when question is asked.* Is this a question that you’ve all heard before? The latter. No, not a fan [of ham]. Trying to be vegetarian. Trying to. *RH explains that the ham would actually be made of KR’s hand, thus not breaking any vegetarian rules.* Oh. And you ask this question to find out if other people are mental?
Recorded at the Liverpool Playhouse.
KR’s daughter, Emily Atack, was a previous guest on the podcast.
RH reveals that he had invited Paul McCartney to be a guest for tonight’s episode, but his manager confirmed that McCartney was unavailable.
