Spencer Jones is The Herbert in Proper Job

To Do List Daily: Spencer Jones is The Herbert in Proper Job – Tue 8 March

Hilarious buffoon (and BAFTA-nominated) Spencer Jones returns to Soho Theatre as The Herbert in Proper Job – a properly goofy hour of funtimez!

Slapstick king of mime Spencer Jones is ripping up the comedy rule book. Catch him in Soho Theatre’s Downstairs intimate basement space before he goes interstellar!

They Say: 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?
