Having heard a bit of a clamour for his satirical lyrical trickery and musical athleticism, Tim will be performing at the lovely Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday May 29th, 2014.
The presale starts today, Thursday 24th April, 2014, at 10am PDT with tickets via Ticketmaster.
Use the presale code: MINCHIN
Tickets go on general sale at 10am PDT tomorrow, Friday 25th April, 2014.
Those who emailed in a photo of their glum face and ticket stub, for fuckuppery make-uppery, you’ll be contacted shortly, if you haven’t been already.
UPDATE 10:32am PDT: There’s been a bit of a glitch with the number of tickets put on presale. It is being sorted out and if you try again shortly you’ll be able to buy them.
For those of you who were disappointed last October when The Great Visa Fuckuppery meant that Tim was not allowed to appear at Festival Supreme: This is the news you have been waiting for!
As Tim said in his Great Visa Fuckuppery blog:
“I really want to do something to try to make this up to y’all. …could you do something for me? Try to keep hold of your ticket stub from Festival Supreme. OK? …take a selfie with your sad, sad face next to the ticket before you lose it. That way, we have some chance of putting on some sort of free compensatory gig next year.”
So now’s your chance. Tim will be doing a gig in LA in the next couple of months, but before the main announcement he’d like to see those ticket stubs and sad, sad faces so that he can arrange for you to attend the gig for free. Yippee!
All you have to do is email the photos of your sad faces next to your Festival Supreme ticket stubs to [email protected] and then, sometime quite soon, you’ll be emailed with details of how this will work.
Act fast though because you have just 48 hours to find those ticket stubs, take suitably sorrowful snaps and email them to the address above.
Deadline: Friday, 18th April 2014, 12:30 PDT
UPDATE: Tim has extended the deadline by 12 hours to Saturday, 19th April 2014, 00:30 PDT
It’s been a while since there was a bit of new Tim footage on UK TV, but Comedy Central will be putting an end to that this week!
On Saturday 29th March, at 10pm, Comedy Central will be showing the best bits from the Just for Laughs festival from recent years, including one of Tim’s performances from 2011!
The show will also feature some wonderful appearances from Rich Hall, Russell Kane, Mark Watson, and Kristen Schall, as if the fuzzy-haired one isn’t reason enough alone for you to tune in.
After rocking out American and Australian TV sets as Atticus Fetch last year, you’ll soon be able to grab a copy of Californication Season 6 to watch Tim live out his rock star fantasies whenever you want!
Want to watch a particular scene over and over again? Not a problem. Missed the season entirely? Well you’ll be able to fix that. Want to skip all the bits with Tim in? Well, you could, but we don’t condone that kind of activity here…
That’s right, Season 6 of Californication is coming to DVD (and to Blu-Ray as well in Australia) in quite a few countries over the next month, so here’s a handy guide as to where and when you can get hold of it.
US: 25th March 2014 – DVD
Canada: 25th March 2014 – DVD
UK: 14th April 2014 – DVD
Australia: 23rd April 2014 – DVD and Blu-Ray
France: 23rd April – DVD
Germany: 8th May 2014 – DVD
If your country isn’t on the list, please check with your local retailer as it might still be being released in your area.
Look at how excited Tim is about this!
On Sunday 15th June at 3pm, the Royal Shakespeare Company will present the first ‘relaxed performance’ of Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre in the West End. The National Autistic Society is working closely with the RSC on this special performance offering full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities.
Tim: “Through no work of my own, two of my favourite organisations – The Royal Shakespeare Co and the National Autistic Society – have come together to organise a relaxed performance of one of my favourite musicals! I’m so bloody chuffed it’s happening, and only wish I could be there to witness it.”
The performance will provide a relaxed environment, with elements of the production adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels will be adjusted to soften their impact and there will be a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around the auditorium during the performance. Designated ‘chill-out’ areas will be provided outside the auditorium with soft seating and activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
Tickets for this performance will be offered at the reduced rate of £20 and can be booked through the RSC Ticket Hotline 0844 800 1110 or in person at the Cambridge Theatre box office.
All those who book will be sent a visual story to help them familiarise themselves with the plot, characters and the setting before they arrive at the theatre. Further event details can be found on the dedicated RELAXED PERFORMANCE section of the Matilda the Musical website.
The original cast recording of Matilda the Musical is available from iTunes and on CD. The CD is available from the RSC Shop or the SHOP tab on this site.
