December 2010

Are you in Australia and sick of all the UK press announcements? Well here’s a little something for you. Well, if you live in or around Sydney anyway.

A fourth date has been added to the run with The Sydney Symphony!

The extra show will be on the 27th March 2011 at the Sydney Opera House. Tickets will be available tomorrow from the Opera House website.

What’s your excuse for not going?

Have you had enough of Tim on your television and radio sets yet? No? Well this will be a bit of good news for you!

If you have a fancy DAB radio (or digital TV or the Internet) you can hear Tim curating BBC Radio 7‘s Comedy Club tonight and Sunday, 10pm – midnight, with Tom Wrigglesworth. Look at the photo of them together; I think they’re having a hair-off.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Tim will be interviewed on T4 (Channel 4). This will be aired in two parts at 10:45am and 11:50am so if you don’t want to watch the Hollyoaks omnibus then you don’t have to!

Tim will also be on the radio tomorrow, on BBC Radio 4‘s Loose Ends at 6:15pm alongside John Waters, Lisa Jardine, and Carl Davis.

The proceeds from the December 2010 sales of ‘White Wine in the Sun’ are going to The National Autistic Society.

Tim is delighted to be supporting this charity again this year, because he feels it is a poorly funded area, with its causes and treatment still not well understood.

This is a captivating song and a beautiful and intelligent exploration of why Christmas can still be meaningful even without religious beliefs. There’s just the right amount of sentiment and some very gentle humour illustrating Tim’s feelings about Christmas and the importance of family and home. It is a heart-warming song and may make you a little bright eyed.

You can download it from iTunes here.

The song can also be viewed on Tim’s YouTube Channel and this week he performed it live on Richard Bacon’s BBC 5 Live show. You can see that video here.

Emotional huh?

EDIT: In answer to some queries we’ve received: The proceeds from ALL legitimate downloads go to the NAS, including Amazon here.

Tomorrow morning, Tim will be valiantly encasing himself in warm, yet sheddable layers (studios can be very warm) and struggling through up to an inch of snow to appear on BBC Breakfast.

That’s BBC1, Thursday 2nd December 2010.

Despite it being the huskies day off  and too early for the reindeer he should be on your screens, all snug on the couch, some time after 8.15am.

This is one of those occasions where it’s not too kinky to wonder what the handsome comedy rock superstar/fashion icon will be wearing first thing in the morning…

EDIT: If you missed this, the full interview has gone up on the BBC site here.
