"There are officially 1,170 comedy shows in this year’s Fringe, and countless more not in the programme. But there is only one like Spencer Jones’s." ✭✭✭✭1/2 (4.5 stars) Chortle

"No other Fringe show will put a bigger smile on your face​" ✭✭✭✭ Evening Standard 

"Eggy Bagel is an hour of joyful, inoffensive silliness which could tickle the coldest of hearts." ✭✭✭✭ The Skinny

"Only those with the stoniest of hearts could fail to fall for The Herbert.✭✭✭✭ The List

His amazing 2015 show Spencer Jones is THE HERBERT IN PROPER JOB had glowing reviews and won Best Fringe Show and Best Performer at The Comedians’ Choice Award as well as having a week's sell out run at the Soho Theatre with this "joyful hour of goofery".

Spencer won the 2016 Broadcast Digital Award for Best Scripted Online Short for his ten minute short SPENCER JONES'S CHRISTMAS. Cave Bear and Tiger Aspect produced the short, which was one of Sky Comedy's Christmas Shorts. 

Spencer has filmed appearances in the BBC's upcoming LIVE AT THE BBC and for AL PORTER LIVE AT THE OLYMPIA for RTE2 in Ireland.

"An unlikely hero dressed in white tights and a T-shirt with a photo of a budgie on it. Childlike and cheeky, The Herbert would much rather splurge cash on trinkets from the internet than knuckle under. He’s amassed quite a collection and has more than a few ideas of how he can pass the time with them. His wife and relatives despair of him, he’s a dad after all – and there is something strangely wrong about his baby son! Finding and quickly losing a job in a nuclear power plant, and waiting on hospital results for his son, The Herbert cheers himself with some mucking about of the highest order, using objects from the ordinary to the plain weird in ways beyond what they were intended for. It’s something to do right?"

A show about failing, failure, how to fail and why you sometimes have to fail to win.

The Herbert makes a triumphant return to Edinburgh with a brand new show stuffed full of physical, musical, prop-heavy insanity. A sort of grubby Mr Bean with a hint of Tommy Cooper.

‘Punch you in the gut funny… Possibly the nicest, funniest, silliest, most heart-warming hour you can have this August’ **** (Scotsman). ‘Gloriously hilarious’ (Chortle.co.uk)
