Herbert Howard Jones

Biography

Grew up in Notting Hill, London in the sixties. Went to a boarding school in Norfolk and then local schools. Got a job as a porter (not reporter) at the BBC London, worked in a jewellery factory and also at a solicitor's office as a trainee legal executive. I'm a creative spirit who likes dabbling in music and art. I always wanted to be a stand-up comedian but as a profession it appears to be too deadly serious! The funniest joke I ever heard was told by American comedian, Jerry Seinfeld - the sock joke. (You might be able to Google it). I am also very fond of dogs and cats and have had several pets in the past. At the moment I am a magnet for stray cats who seem to like my back garden. They all take turns at the food bowl while strictly keeping their distance from each other!
