to the official web site for the brilliant, multi award-winning Rainer Hersch - the British classical music comedian.

Rainer is a writer and performer. He does shows all over the world where he appears either as a solo stand-up or with anything from his own madcap, 8-piece band right up to a full symphony orchestra. He writes columns for newspapers and magazines, has starred in many series on both TV and radio, has toured more countries than you can wave a stick at and has always got something exciting going on. He performs in English, German, French and Spanish.
