Herbie got his start in comedy at just five years old, entertaining the customers in his mother’s hair salon in Cambridge, creating characters and enchanting the ladies trapped under the dryers. Since those formative and crucial years, he toured as a drummer/percussionist, playing with a diversity of musicians from bands such as Dio, Groove Armada and Dizzy Rascal. But it was during one particular performance when, (to a wave of laughter) he fell off the drum riser, before finally becoming a full-time comedian in his twenties, when he wrote and performed his first one-man show. Since then, his work has taken him around the world and all over the UK in radio, television, stand-up clubs, universities, music festivals and in theatre. Now with a mix of music, surreal characters, sharp one-liners and comedic observations he's established himself as a popular headliner on the comedy circuit today. Herbie lives in London, on the edge of insanity.
Herbie plays several surreal comedy characters/voices ranging from a retro style game show host to an eccentric elderly conductor.
Has also performed 'family friendly' comedy for clients such as Disney and Nickelodeon also sharing the stage with Basil Brush and Sesame Street.
An accomplished corporate performer and awards host, recent clients include O2, TUI and CHP Financial Consulting. Recent venues include The Ivy, Ascot and Twickenham Stadium.
Currently co-writing and developing a brand new TV sketch series.
Funny bones and inspired lunacy from a very gifted and funny comedian whose sureness of touch and natural like-ability could be a trump card in the highly serious and competitive game of stand up comedy” The Stage and TV
