'Beardyman was a fun, entertaining finish to the event. The audience were (in order) interested, confused, amused, entertained!'

Production Bureau


Beardyman has an astounding talent for producing the sounds and rhythms of entire musical tracks using only his mouth.

The award-winning beatboxing champion Beardyman combines humour with his musical performances. Live, he often appears on stage in the guise of a 'serious' speaker (an environmental expert, a self help guru) who starts with a speech which looks set to bore the audience, before launching into a set of hip-hop, funk and soul inspired vocal gymnastics.

Despite writing a symphony at the age of ten, Beardyman became obsessed with music technology and dance music. He has appeared live with Groove Armada, Chaz and Dave, Blondie, Bill Bailey, and the Beastie Boys. In addition to straightforward beatboxing, Beardyman also uses a selection of digital effects and samplers to create multi-layered tracks live.

Beardyman's talent has been seen and heard on outlets as diverse as BBC1's When Will I Be Famous, the Comedy Proms from the Royal Albert Hall, MTV, Lily Allen and Friends, Radio 1, and Radio 3, along with live performances all over the world. He's also provided sounds and speech for TV ads for PlayStation and Sky TV, and also wrote and presented the Radio 4 programme Beardyman and the Mimics, in which he explored the natural world's inclination to copy the sounds around it.

Starting out as an internet phenomenon, Beardyman has also inspired a small group called Barbists, who consider his words to be religious teachings. Rapidly becoming an international star, Beardy has come to the attention of Hollywood and is providing a voice for an upcoming Disney film.
