RICHARD HERRING announces the first ever LIVE frame of cult/irritating snooker podcast Me1 vs Me 2. Further to his hugely successful Leicester Square Theatre and Edinburgh podcasts, and his hotly anticipated live show We’re All Going to Die! watch a grown man play himself at snooker whilst commentating. Taking place at the Assembly 3 at 21:30 on August 12th, see Referee2, commentator1, Richard1 and Richard2 in the flesh. Mental breakdown has never been so entertaining!
Me1 vs Me2 Snooker with RICHARD HERRING is a series of exhibition snooker matches in which RICHARD HERRING recreates his lonely childhood by playing himself at snooker and commentating as he plays. Who will win Me1 or Me2 and is there any real difference between these closely matched players? Will their different personalities shine through? And how much of this can you listen to before you become as unhinged as Me1, Me2 and the commentator Mes? This really is just a grown man playing snooker against himself on a wonky 6ft by 3ft snooker table in a room which is not quite big enough. WARNING: This is an incredibly self-indulgent and boring show. You only have yourself to blame if you listen and then become hooked and begin to favour one of the two Mes over the other.
All profits from the show will be donated to Scope www.scope.org.uk
WHAT iTUNES LISTENERS HAVE SAID ABOUT
RICHARD HERRING – Me1 vs Me2
– Richard has been threatening this podcast for sometime and now it’s here it is surprisingly funny. Highlights include tripping over things, forgetting whose turn it is and remembering the fact that you are listening to a middle aged man talk to himself in his basement.
– Quite frankly the worst podcast ever… an old man recording himself playing snooker on not even a real-size snooker table against himself. Really?
– I found this got better after the first 7 hours. Or at least less worse.
