Florian Herrnleben was born as the eldest son of the puppeteer couple Wolfgang and Elisabeth Herrnleben in Bamberg . His great-grandfather Hans Herrnleben founded the Herrnleben puppet theater in 1945 , and was a well-known humorist and popular actor in Bamberg. Florian Herrnleben first appeared on stage at the age of five, and at the age of six he took on his first role on the puppet stage. He became known throughout Bavaria in the mid-1990s when he appeared several times in his role as Kakadu Plapperix in the children's program Schlawinerplatz on Bavarian TV. Internationally, he has already worked as a puppeteer for the Italian plush toy manufacturer Trudi at the toy fair.
After his father, Wolfgang Herrnleben, suddenly fell ill, in 2006 he initially took on the role of Bamberg Punch and Judy and the organizational management of the puppet theater. With the death of his mother in 2011, he became the sole owner and artistic director of the family business.
Productions / Punch and Judy Stories
Since taking over the puppet stage, Florian Herrnleben has mainly concentrated on re-enactments from the puppeteer's family's extensive archive, which includes well over 800 of his own pieces, adapted fairy tales and adventures. However, he also wrote new puppet adventures, for example the play "Sandkirchweih für Zwerge", which is also his author's debut for the famous Bamberg Sandkerwa , which traditionally opens with a big puppet adventure by the Herrenleben family.
Florian Herrnleben revived the popular radio plays by Bamberger Kasperl, which were originally produced for local radio, and released several recordings with stories from Bamberg Kasperl. Together with Johannes Speckamp, he also produced an album with 11 children's songs by Bamberg's Kasperl. In the lead role as Bamberger Kasperl, he spoke to Bastian Pastewka , Dirk Bach , Martin Schneider , Lisa Feller , Bodo Bach , Ralf Richter and many more on the radio play CD "Children's stories with Bamberg Punch - SPECIAL". His CD with the environmental stories was created in cooperation with the Bavarian State Ministry for Environment and Health.

Under the motto and simultaneous program title “Pregnancy test: Passed!”, As a new father, he ponders pregnancies and becoming a father per se.
