Harvey Cobb is sort of a comedian, kind of a juggler, definitely a host, and almost an artist. He grew up in a small industrial town in the North of England where he learnt to ride a unicycle because he was bad at football. After finding a local youth circus, at the age of ten Harvey began busking on the streets of Durham, Newcastle and Edinburgh where he learnt how to perform and how to embarrass himself in public.

On stage, Harvey creates his own signature blend of ludicrous nonsense, vulnerable sincerity and a ridiculous amount of Pink Rain Boots/Gum Boots/Wellies. He combines absurd and honest stand up with silly circus to keep his audience laughing, and crying, and questioning their life choices.

In the infamous summer of 2020, Harvey began running The Headless Cabaret, a weekly online circus show: “Circus made for the Screen”. After its positive reception, Harvey joined forces with juggler and filmmaker Fidel Rott to form Headless Productions. Together they run The Headless Cabaret (now in real life and online), a late night showcase of young, obscure, out of the box performers based in Europe. As part of Headless Productions, Harvey wrote and starred in Harvey Cobb and The Abundance of Pink Boots, an online mini-series combining circus and sketch-comedy.
