On March 14th, Tim will be taking to the stage alongside an eclectic line-up of comedians, scientists and politicians, including Dara O’Briain, Dr Ben Goldacre, Robin Ince and Simon Singh, at a benefit gig for the Coalition for Libel Reform, who are trying to get unfair UK libel laws reformed.
This is what Tim had to say about the matter: “Here is what current English libel laws say: ‘Dear inquisitive, hard-working person with the public interest at heart: If a rich b*****d tells you to shut-up, you’d better shut-the f**k-up or be prepared to go broke’. It needs a tweak, we reckon.”
The show is taking place at the Palace Theatre in London and tickets are priced between £20 and £40.

Tim has been nominated for the Music or Variety act in the 2010 Chortle Awards, along with Wilson Dixon, Frisky & Mannish and Hans Teeuwen.
It’s the ninth year of the Chortle Awards and Music or Variety is one of the two new categories, the other being Sketch or Character act.
Polls close at 11.59pm on February 21 and you can vote *ahem* numerously here.

Wow, there hasn’t been any news in a while but that changes right now!
For all you Aussie folk reading this, be sure to tune in to Ten on Monday at 8:30pm.
I’m sure some of you are thinking, “but that’s when ‘Good News Week’ is on,” and you’d be right because, along with Jimeoin, Kitty Flanagan and Colin Lane, Tim’s appearing on it so if you’ve ever wanted to see him take part in a comedy panel quiz show that isn’t ‘Spicks and Specks’ then now’s your chance!
