A book of note?

Richard Herring's jottings to fetch

It could be an important historical document for the future museum of 21st Century comedy. Or it could just be a comedian’s scrawled notes.

Either way, Richard Herring is auctioning off the hand-written notebook he used for his Leicester Square Theatre podcast – and bids have already topped £400.

The book contains notes for each guest and a list of ‘emergency questions’, and the comedian calls it 'a real one-off collector's item'. 

It also includes the autographs of all the guests from series 7 to 10 – including Bob Mortimer, Limmy, Eddie Izzard, Vic Reeves, Dawn French, but excluding  Catastrophe’s Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, as Herring admits: ‘I forgot to ask them.’

It’s one of several items he’s selling off to help finance the filming of the podcast for video release. The eBay auctions,  all of which close next Tuesday, are here.
