Rainer Hersch

Internationally recognised Conductor

Rainer Hersch is unique – he is both an internationally recognised conductor and stand-up comic who has closed the show some of the world’s most famous comedy clubs including Carolines in New York and the Comedy Store in London.

Rainer started his working life in concert agencies, managing some of the greatest artists of the world.  At the same time he developed a hobby – performing stand-up comedy on the London circuit.  Short, unpaid slots led to longer, paid appearances and gradually developed into a parallel career.  In time, Rainer realised that this was his true vocation and gave up his last straight musical job, Touring Manager of the London Festival Orchestra, to enter the world of professional comedy.

Twenty-four years later, this unique training has kept him in constant demand – combining laughter with music.  In addition, he has built up a considerable reputation as a broadcaster and presenter for the BBC and Classic FM.  He has also been consistently delighting corporate audiences with entertainments that are witty, interactive and fun.  These range from classical themed sets with his mini orchestra, corrupting well known works with hilarious effect, to pop singalongs based on classic rock hits.

Rainer Hersch will entertain and engage your audience with presentations that are sophisticated, novel, appeal across nationalities, are clean and above all funny. As a keynote speaker Rainer Hersch uses his experience conducting some of the great orchestras of the world to provide fascinating insights into leadership, teamwork and motivation.

Stand Up

Rainer Hersch was superb, a resounding success. Firstly, his preparation was greatly appreciated. He set up the night before and had a lot of the cables/equipment with him which helped the technical crew. He was punctual on the day which helped alleviate our nerves. Then, he delivered to the brief on the day – for sure. We are very pleased with his keynote speech. The hour seemed to fly by as he inspired and entertained the audience with interactive dialogue – what a great performance! He put on a great show.


The mix of comedy and classical music was hugely entertaining and the auditorium was filled with laughter from start to finish. Our delegates not only had a brilliant time but they also left with fascinating insights on what conductors do as well as key takeaways on leadership and motivational techniques for teams.
