Richard Herring is my favourite living comedian. My favourite living British comedian. The podcasts he does with Andrew Collins have given me more pleasure in the last year or so than... well, quite a few things. He makes me laugh like a schoolgirl.
As well as being very funny he also has a big heart. After every one of his gigs he hands round a bucket and collects money for Scope, the excellent cerebral palsy charity. And over the years he's raised quite a bit for them. Good man.
He's currently on a mission to raise even more money for Scope. In fact, he wants to raise £20,000. At the moment he's up to just over £12,000. Which is pretty good going. So why not help him out by visiting his JustGiving site? Come on, even if it's just a few quid - I know you can all afford it:
