Talks and Public Speaking

My name is Richard Vobes and I have been trying to break into television all my life. I have had some strange adventures along the way, but it's been a journey of laughs and tears, thats for sure. I now offer an hour long humorous talk for all types of gatherings. You may not believe it, but my career has included appearances on ITV's The Bill and Poirot; I have been a fire eater and laid on a bed of nails. I have even wriiten and stared in a mad-cap slapstick series on Children's TV and explored the nations heritage on the Community Channel.

The Bald Explorer

The Bald Explorer explores British history, travelling the landscape in search of heritage. In this teaser video, the Bald Explorer is in the Welsh Marches on the search for the ancient Briton Caratacus and the location of his last stand against the Roman invading force in A50.


Children's Writer

Richard Vobes started writing short stories, plays and television scripts when in his teens and early twenties. He went to mime school and performed his one man show all round the UK. In the mid 1990s he produced a pilot for a children’s television series entitled Snug and Cozi, the comedy slapstick adventures of two crazy spacemen who crash land on Earth. Two series were produced and broadcast on Children’s ITV. In recent times, Richard made a history documentary series called The Bald Explorer which was broadcast on the Community Channel on Freeview and Sky TV. Richard has eaten fire, walked on glass, lain on a bed of nails and juggled five balls on a walking globe at many gala shows and family fun events all round the country. He is concentrating on writing children’s books and Splidge the Cragflinger is the first of the series. There are plenty more books to come. Richard has three children and lives in Worthing, West Sussex.
