Herb Dixon is what you get when you combine hilarious comedy and sound impressions! You have to see him to believe him!! Herb Dixon was born in Vancouver, British Columbia but grew up in the heart of the west, that original cow-town, Calgary, Alberta. As a teenager, he discovered he could make people laugh – really laugh! With his rubber face, his ability to recreate sounds, and his talent to tell an engaging story, it seemed he was destined for a career in comedy.
Experience: In 1979 Herb Dixon began making club audiences laugh as an amateur comic in Vancouver’s comedy Clubs. Twenty Years have passed from the time Herb decided to become an entertainer. All the while, Herb has built and honed his material on his way up the ladder of comedy. Herb’s high-energy style of performing is applauded and anticipated time and time again by comedy fans across North America. Today, Herb Dixon is one of North America’s most sought-after comedy acts!
Comedy Style: Herb Dixon takes everyday life experiences and skews them into epic comedy extravaganzas. It’s the kind of material everybody can relate to-because it happens to us all every day in our own lives. Only with Herb, it’s always a lot funnier! A Comedy Sound Impressionist, Herb Dixon brings a 3rd dimension of totally realistic sound to his performances. Known as the “Fort Knox of Sound”, Herb’s impressions make audience members look over their shoulders for the source of the convincing reverberation of cars, helicopters and other such mediums of sound. Among the favourites are the sinking of the Titanic, complete with blasting fog-horns; a Canadian Mountie on horse back in hot pursuit; and of course, Herb’s famous Harley Davidson impression. The sound is so loud, lifelike and believable, you can almost smell the hot exhaust fumes! Horses, cars, trains, planes! Boats, wild motorcycles and sinking ships – see, hear and feel the vibration of hilarious comedy entertainment! With Herb’s help, you’re aboard the Titanic after its encounter with the world’s largest ice cube. Complete with shrieks and blasting fog horns, disaster has never been this much fun ever before!
Personality: Herb has a natural ability to convey the most hilarious stories to his audience by renditions of real-life experiences. Herb brings humour to everyday events that we can all relate to and laugh at, even long after the stage lights dim.
Why hire Herb Dixon? Herb is known as one of the most consistent corporate performers. He adapts his routines depending on the audience response to his jokes. “I don’t tell ‘R’ rated jokes to a ‘G’ rated house,” Herb explains. “One of my definite strengths is my ability to read an audience. Their reactions always tell me which way to go, and I do. From corporate conventions to cruise ships to headline performances with some of today’s biggest stars, Herb Dixon finds a way to have fun with every audience.
