The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk

The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk, a comedy of the absurd

The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk is a weird and wonderful place to be, as the first BBC Two series in 2019 demonstrated to the nation. Each of the 15-minute episodes saw comedian Spencer Jones’s alter ego navigate the basic tasks of adulting while distracted by his own imagination as conveyed through surreal sketches and musical mayhem.

Ahead of its second series, last month, an RTS event gave a preview of the action to come – and insight into the psyche of Jones, a Bafta and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee.
