John Herman




Improv Impresario John Herman is a creative whirlwind on the Seacoast, with his improv comedy troupe, Stranger than Fiction, his mystery band, “The Man Who Was Thursday,” his theatre roles and his new weekly video podcast, “The Eye” (www.johnherman.org). He’s a comedian, cartoonist, filmmaker, music producer, show host, director, voice performer, writer and a few other assorted things. “It is always hard for me to categorize what I do,” says Herman. “I wear a lot of hats because a lot of things excite me.” And he manages to channel that multi-layered excitement into his class at Epping High School where he teaches Mass Media and Communication. His zeal recently landed a gift of three digital cameras and a computer from Internet visionary Jeff Pulver, to jumpstart a student multi-media project.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
