The Project

This evening, 6.30pm–7.30pm, Tim’ll be on The Sunday Project on Channel Ten.

He joins hosts Hamish MacDonald, Chris Bath, Tommy Little and Rachel Corbett, alongside fellow guests Rob Langdon and Kris Smith.

UPDATE: Tim’s on at the very end of the programme.

If you can’t sit around your tellys at the allotted time, the show will be available afterwards on The Project’s website. (Sadly Tenplay’s catch-up is geo-blocked outside Australia.)

Here’s the segment:

Adam Zwar & Tim

Adam Zwar & Tim

Tim’s to star in Squinters, a new six part comedy series, created by Adam Zwar and Trent O’Donnell, for the ABC.

The series, set entirely in cars, follows the lives and aspirations of rush-hour commuters from Sydney’s western suburbs as they drive to work in the morning and then catches up with their day again on the return trip. The title refers to the fact they are heading east, into the sun, in the mornings.

Tim joins a stellar cast: Jacki Weaver, Miranda Tapsell, Mandy McElhinney, Damon Herriman, Sam Simmons, Andrea Demetriades, Wayne Blair, Christiaan Van Vuuren, Justin Rosniak, Jenna Owen, Susie Youssef, Rose Matafeo, Steen Raskopoulos, John ‘MyChonny’ Luc and Nyasha Hatend.

Produced by Jungle, Squinters will shoot in October in Sydney and Los Angeles and is set to air on ABC in 2018.

In December, I’m moving to Sydney with my family, so it might be a good while before I play West Coast US shows again.

This micro tour is a happy-sad farewell to this lovely-wild city (and brilliant-crazy-scary country) that we’ve lived in for 4 years.

The gig will be a bit different. There are some guest musos lined up, and I’ll be playing songs rarely heard. And plenty you have.

It’ll be special, I reckon. Come come.

WIGU Aus Signing

There will be an exclusive book signing event held for When I Grow Up at Harry Hartog Bookseller, Westfield Bondi Junction, Shop 5036 500 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction, NSW, on Saturday 21th October, 10am – 12noon.

Tim’s new magical picture book, inspired by his hit song from the acclaimed and multi-award-winning Matilda the Musical, is illustrated by Steve Antony, an internationally published, award-winning author and illustrator. It imagines life from a child’s viewpoint, with all the humour and poignancy of the song.

This Australian edition includes a bonus download of Tim performing the song.

The event is not ticketed; you can just turn up and join the line to meet Tim and get your books signed. He’ll be bringing a trusty pen and his ever winning smile.

If you’re not able to make it to this event, there are several places to buy the book online.
The UK edition publication details have already been announced here.
There will be another announcement soon to reveal the cover of the US edition which Scholastic US will be publishing in 2018.
