Herman Finkers Biography

Herman Finkers is a Dutch comedian, who is well recognized in the Netherlands for his friendly, dry-witted humour and his ambiguous style of storytelling. In his way of telling a story, the moral should never be in the way of a good joke or pun. His humour is never at the expense of others, except his brother Wilfried, who is frequently the target of jokes. Wilfried co-wrote material and occasionally appeared in his brother’s shows.


His career as a cabaret performer started after his study when he made his stuttering his trademark. His first program was known as Op Zwart Zangzaad. In 1979 he won many prizes at the Delftse Cameretten festival. He temporarily stopped performing in 2000 due to a lack of inspiration and motivation. Soon afterwards he was diagnosed with a form of leukaemia. He was given an estimate of 10 to 15 years of life left. On August 5, 2006, a Fuchsia was named after him.

In 2007 he started playing in theaters again, with a show known as Na de Pauze (After the Break). On December 31, 2015, he gave the traditional New Year’s Eve performance (“Oudejaarsconference”) on Dutch television, which was viewed by 3 million people. In 2020, he played the lead role in the film The Marriage Escape. He is a Catholic. He is very passionate about the Tweants dialect. He has translated a number of his shows into Tweants Low Saxon, which is his mother tongue.


He also wrote and directed two short animation films, which were completely in Tweants: Kroamschudd’n in Mariaparochie (Baby shower in Mary’s Parish, which tells the story of the birth of Christ in a setting of Twente) and his comic interpretation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
