The Audition

Actor-comedian Spencer Jones and his wide-eyed, idiot alter-ego, The Herbert, had become a recent Fringe favourite by the time this nomination came about. Donning his pair of tights and hunch-backed jacket, Jones – not sure whether he’s still in character not – told the story of auditioning for a Steven Spielberg robot movie, with the help of goofy prop gags, mischievous physical comedy and tennis ball characters.
