Herb Shriner (born Herbert Arthur Schiner on May 29, 1918 in Toledo, Ohio; died April 23, 1970 in Delray Beach, Florida) was an American humorist, radio personality and television host.
Shriner was best known for his homespun monologues, usually with roots in his adopted home state of Indiana. He was often compared to fellow humorist Will Rogers.
Shriner moved to Fort Wayne as a toddler, when his mother Edith left his father. Shriner learned to play the harmonica as a grade school student. By the time he was attending Central High School, he had formed a quintet, later an octet, which made frequent local appearances. When the group disbanded, Shriner worked on his own, and when his lip gave out one night during a performance, he filled time by telling homespun stories. The laid-back, deadpan comedy routines became more popular than the music, and soon he was regaling audiences with tales about his fictional (and never named) Hoosier hometown.
