An unlikely hero dressed in white tights and a T-shirt with a photo of a budgie on it. Childlike and cheeky, The Herbert brings a show stuffed full of physical, musical, prop-heavy insanity.

A sort of grubby Mr Bean with a hint of Tommy Cooper. This guy is such a dickhead. Writer and star of BBC's BAFTA-nominated Big Babies and UK Barry-nominated for best performer in Edinburgh 2014, Spencer Jones was a New Act of the Year 2015 runner-up.

"Punch you in the gut funny... Possibly the nicest, funniest, silliest, most heart-warming hour you can have" **** Scotsman

"Gloriously hilarious" - Chortle

"Spencer Jones has built one of the silliest, most consuming shows of the Fringe" ***** Times

"This is a performance that can be read as pure daftness, channelling the spirit of Tommy Cooper, or as something deeper and existential. The truth is probably both" - Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
