Every season stand-up comedians audition for America’s Got Talent and Season 13 is no exception. So far, two stand out — the Roseanne-esque Vicki Barbolak and veteran stand-up comic Andy Huggins who shared the stage with AGT judge Howie Mandel 27 years ago. But they haven’t seen Herb Marple yet. He will perform during Week 6 of auditions and it will be memorable. America will either love or hate Herb Marple — he’s known for his vomiting act.
Herb Marple is a character developed by actor/comedian Dennis Hurley of Los Angeles. The Ithaca alum launched his improv career with the Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade. Over the years, he’s appeared on episodes of Superstore and The Daily Show, among others. Check out Hurley in the super popular Justin Timberlake video “Can’t Stop the Feeling” below which has been viewed more than 859 million times. Hurley is the grocery store worker who dances in the aisle. New episodes of America’s Got Talent air Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC, right before World of Dance.
