Please Welcome a Man
Who had baked beans for lunch and just realized this is the only recording he’s done in over a year where he’s not allowed to fart during it.

Richard Herring’s Les’s Superb Triumph on Pointless

Cool Kids
I was talking with Carrie Symonds. I was sitting on her £10,000 sofa that matched the curtain and wallpaper. It was a bit gaudy, I thought. It had no arms either. Apparently that costs extra; they couldn’t afford it. And she says the people at John Lewis call it…

Guest Best Known
For her appearance on Stand-Up Hero.

Emergency Questions

Do you ever get confused with *another person with the same name as guest*?

Um, it hasn’t come up yet. *RH notes that both CW’s have disclaimers on one another’s Wikipedia sites.* I mean, it sounds like a very efficient system. *RH notes that the other CW was in a motorcycle crash.* Was she? Wow.

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?

Michelangelo’s David and the reason is because I’d studied, um, Romans and Greeks a little bit in my A-Levels and Michelangelo’s David is sort of a copy of The Doryphoros by Polyclites. And I always kind of really liked it.

Is the Pope Catholic?

I mean, he’s gotta’ be, really.

Is Jesus Catholic?

No. He wasn’t Catholic. [He was] Jewish. *RH suggests that Jesus founded Catholicism in order to abandon Judaism.* I don’t think that’s exactly what he said.

Where do you stand on transubstantiation?

I think it’s impossible for us to determine now.

Do you think towns should bring back the forum?

Is that where the people shout and have discuss stuff? And have a debate? Because there are still markets. Okay. Yeah, I think they should. It might take the heat off Twitter.

If you could have a hand made of ham or an armpit that dispensed sun cream, which would you prefer?

I have a follow-up question. The armpit that dispenses sun cream, does it also dispense BO? Because if you’re sweaty then you might, like, rub, you know, all over yourself with the sun cream. *RH notes that some personal hygiene will be required.* Okay. Okay. Alright, no, yeah good. I’m sticking with the sun cream.

Have you ever seen a ghost?

Well, I mean it’s probably pretty well-documented on our podcast that we hear children crying in our 300 year-old house. But we think that’s just parental madness/concern about our children. The cat meowing. I did once – when I was about five or six – I woke up in the night and I thought I saw the head of Medusa on my wall. And that was quite scary. I mean, in the box room.

Notes

This episode was live-streamed via Twitch, but since RH and CW live together there was no need for social distancing.

This is CW’s second appearance. CW had previously appeared with other members of the Drunk Women Solving Crime podcast.

RH reveals that he won the episode of Pointless Celebrities wherein he was partnered with Les Dennis. This was RH’s fourth appearance on Pointless Celebrities.

RH reads a caption about himself from a website called Famous Details, claiming that RH has never been married and is not currently in a relationship.

RH notes that another website asserted that his net worth was $1.5 million.

Just prior to drinking a non-alcoholic beer, RH notes that he has not had an alcoholic beverage in 118 days.

RH references a previous episode with Mike Wozniak, where RH predicts that CW will leave him for a woman.

RH displays the puppet representing his lost testicle.
