A show about failing, failure, how to fail and why you sometimes have to fail
Fresh from an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe and sell-out October run, the BAFTA nominated Spencer Jones is back at Soho Theatre for another joyful hour of "goofery" as "The Herbert." 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. 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? Over 16s only. Valid ID may be required. Runtime: 1 hour.
"Spencer Jones has built one of the silliest, most consuming shows of the Fringe."
