"Funny bones and inspired lunacy from a very gifted and funny comedian whose sureness of touch and natural like-ability is a trump card in the highly serious and competitive game of comedy"
Herbie got his start in comedy at just five years old, entertaining the customers in his mother’s hair salon in Cambridge, England, creating characters and enchanting the ladies trapped under the dryers. Since those formative and crucial years, he spent the early nineties touring and recording as a drummer/percussionist with a diversity of original bands, sometimes sharing the line up with the likes of Supergrass, Suede & Jools Holland.. but it was during one particular life changing performance, to a belting wave of laughter... he fell off the drum kit.
"Scores every time"
Finally becoming a full-time comedian in his twenties, he wrote and performed his first one-man show. Since then, appearances have taken him around the world and across the UK in theatre, comedy clubs (incl.. Jongleurs, The Comedy Club and The 'International' Comedy Cellar), universities, cruise ships (Disney, Marella, P&O, Princess), casinos, military shows, touring theatre shows (most recently supporting The Stylistics on their UK theatre tour), comedy festivals, music festivals...
Has written and performed alongside many of the biggest names in british comedy and now with a mix of music, surreal characters, sharp one-liners and observations... he's a popular headliner on the international comedy scene today.
An accomplished corporate performer, awards host and presenter.. recent venues include The O2, The NEC, Silverstone, Soho House, Winter Gardens Blackpool, Old Billingsgate, The Corinthia, The Sheridan, Ascot and Twickenham Stadium.
Herbie also presents his own 'family friendly' comedy show... clients including Nickelodeon, TUI and Disney cruise lines.
Starred in many leading pantomimes... most recently with QDOS and Evolution productions.
An established Voice-over artist for various platforms including TUI WORLDWIDE. In 2018 the 'voice of God' for the O2 Arena's 10th birthday with Vernon Kay and Chris Moyles. And again more recently for The 2020 BMW Awards with Claudia Winkleman and Superstar DJ Fatboy Slim.
In more recent times, with a break from live audiences.. Herbie has been rekindling his creativity by revisiting, co-writing, filming and co-starring in 'The GAZEBO Project' with the aim of finally reaching the broader audience it truly deserves.. The GAZEBO demo teaser can be seen here in the CLIPS section.
