With his entertaining, affable and larger –than- life presence, Herbert impeccably embodies his subjects to a tee!
Herbert prides himself on his compulsive attention to detail in both clothing and mannerisms, which offers his impersonations an air of truth and believability. While his vocal mimicry complements his visual accuracy, Herbert’s infectious humour, outstanding acting ability and admiration for his impersonatee’s, Herbert skilfully brings his impressions to life as an entertainer.
With an inspiring delivery of the infamous Battle of Britain speech, amongst his Churchill repertoire, Herbert is the perfect act for commemorative or corporate events.

As a consummate professional, Herbert is ever willing to adapt his performance to suit a variety of client briefs.
Plus, In addition to his exquisite Winston Churchill impersonation as an entertainer, Herbert also offers an eerily accurate adaptation of George Formby. The tribute act delivers a playful and amusing Life Talk on George Formby; including many popular well-known Formby songs, which Derek sings self-accompanied by the frolicsome tones of the ukulele and banjo, as much like George Formby himself, Herbert is an accomplished musician. Having regularly performed at private parties, public functions and elite events up and down the Country, Herbert’s Formby impersonation has proved a sure fire success with every audience, who often find themselves jovially singing along.
Herbert’s most recent impersonation was the tribute act he dedicated to the comedy legend Tommy Cooper. The tribute includes an enthralling Life Story of the comedic genius, incorporating whimsical jokes and marvellous magic tricks, to give his impersonation real authenticity. The late, great Tommy Cooper did not have to utter a single word and yet one outburst of his infectious laugh and the audience would be in hysterics.
Tommy had an insatiable appetite for work and a penchant for making people laugh, which are traits that live on in Herbert today. Primarily, if it’s laughter you’re looking for then Herbert is your man. A born entertainer and consistent crowd pleaser, Herbert will make the perfect solo act or comedy impressionist at any event or function.
