Korg Kaoss PAd 3 and Beardyman! Unbelieveable skills!April 14, 2009
Darren Foreman also known as Beardyman is a beatboxer from London.
Foreman moved to Brighton in 2001 to study at the University of Sussex. After seeing Rahzel play live, he started beatboxing at an improv show in 2002. He was given the nick-name “Beardyman” because at the time, he had a beard. Foreman also often uses the moniker “Professor Bernhard Steinerhoff” when performing for crowds during seemingly serious lectures; often he will begin a serious lecture in a German accent then break into the beatboxing.
Beardyman often uses humour as well as beatboxing in his act. He has impersonated Elvis, dressed as a monkey on stage at Bestival and once posed as an Austrian climate change lecturer before breaking into his set, with over 1 million views on YouTube
Beardyman also features in the Funky Sage ring tones in which he plays a floating head who beatboxes and gives good advice. His video “Kitchen Diaries” which features him combining beatboxing with cooking has been viewed more than 3 million times on YouTube. “Kitchen Diaries” also makes an appearance in ‘South Coast’, a Brighton based documentary about Hip Hop in the UK.
