Richard Herring’s Lovely Sunday Tipping Point Podcast
I was hanging around with Ben Shephard and the contestants on Tipping Point, which I recorded in July 2019, and to be honest I can’t remember who they are now.
Guest Best Known
As the voice of the International Man in Richard Herring’s fantastic The Problem With Men book – the audiobook version; he’s not in the book. He’s not magic. But of course he was also Man on Street on series 3, episode 5 of The Mash Report.

Do you think that there’s a true conspiracy theory?
Probably have got a couple, actually. I don’t – I actually have not delved into them in any… Most of them… Most of the time, when I think about conspiracy theories, I try and wrap my head around how someone has arrived at the mad – like, the Lizard People, or something like that – I go, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Let’s break this – Tell me how. I want to come on board with you. I’ll make that leap, but tell me how that people are lizards, or whatever.” The other stuff, you know, what can you do? Something like 9/11 or whatever, where people are just going to piece together, like, thousands of documents. How can you argue with someone who goes, “Well, have a look at this. How do you explain this? A sharp of 3mm fuselage from the plane…” You know, all that stuff. You go, “I don’t know. Whatever, mate.”
Have you ever milked an animal or a human?
Yes, I have. I’ve got a recollection of milking a goat. Maybe – I think maybe on a school trip. I can’t remember. But I remember something. We might have gone to – We used to go to the zoo. I remember going to London Zoo for a school trip. *RH makes a joke about milking a tiger.* No one knew. I walked into the reptile house; milked a lizard. No one saw it. Wanked off a lizard into the Queen’s ear; left. That sounds like a David Icke conspiracy.
Have you ever been on a plane that’s been in an emergency and seen a genuine look of fear on the face of a flight attendant?
Wow. No. I don’t think so, no. No. Sorry, no. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced that.
Do you think you would have made a good sheriff in the Wild West?
Wow. I mean, you know, you’d like to think so, wouldn’t you? You’d like to think so because you want to be, you want to be a Gary Cooper-type but then you think, How – What would you do if you were confronted with the big, bad, massive one with the moustache and he’s coming to town. They do what they want, those people. And you don’t want to be that one in the western who’s like, “You call yourself a sheriff?” You go, “Yeah, I’m the sheriff.” And they go, *Makes spitting action.* “Spit on the floor.” First of all, you should be in jail for that. And then they just shove you out of the way and go, “Ha!” And I fall, I fall on the dirt, like that. My glasses fall. “My spectacles!” I think I’d be that sort of sheriff. Just pathetic. And I’d be really emasculated by, like, a real man comes along and sorts it out. And then I have to put the badge back on and go, “Fuck’s sake.” You know?
Have you ever seen a ghost?
No, I haven’t had anything. I mean, I’d like that. I’d like to experience that, but I just don’t know. You know. Could you ever conceive of a time when you would have an experience like that and go, “Okay, this has changed my outlook.” It’s hard to think of, isn’t it?
This episode was live-streamed via Twitch, with RH and guest in each of their own homes due to COVID-19/coronavirus.
