Herman van Veen (born 14 March 1945) is a Dutch stage performer, musician, actor and songwriter/writer. He is the creator of the Dutch cartoon Alfred J. Kwak, for which he also wrote and performed the theme music.
Van Veen was born in Utrecht, The Netherlands. He started performing with Erik van der Wurff in his twenties while at the conservatory. He rose to fame in the 1970s with stage shows that combined witty cabaret, satire, performance art and music. Van Veen built a many-sided career that made him especially popular in Belgium and Germany, but he also toured widely in other European countries. A Broadway show in 1982 failed to wow US critics though.
Herman is the father of Dutch actress Babette van Veen and a Unicef ambassador.
