Last night on Conan Tim performed ‘Prejudice’ as many of you correctly predicted in the blog that announced it.

If you are in Australia you might want to delay looking at the video below as you’ll be able to see the show on GEM this Thursday 9th June, 2011.

However, for those in the US who missed it and those in the UK and elsewhere, here’s the bare footage for your delectation:

[edit – ok, this video seems to have gone away. not our fault. oh well, you’re not reading this anyway, it’s too long ago isn’t it.]

Tim is currently on a two month tour of the US and you can find all the dates and ticket links here.

TIM is the best! Saw him in Chicago and he rocked!

I’d not heard this song before, and wasn’t expecting “ginger” to be the word. Brilliant!

“Shut your funky mouth” is not what he sang methinks, but it’s one way past the censors!

[…] friend of mine sent me a link to this video of Tim Minchin performing a song about prejudice. And since I can’t easily link that clip, […]

Awesome performance of that song, one of Tim’s best, especially with the backing band. Loved it!

Lori on 10th of June 2011

Fucking awesome!!! So glad you decided to sing it here in the U.S.! It’s one of my favorites. Now it’s on my DVR! See you in Chicago, TIm

Rachel on 10th of June 2011

Tim looks so filthy! I love him !!!

Jennievfrost on 9th of June 2011

Not like he was about to sing “Cos Fxcking with the G-Word is just not on” ;D what a babe!!

The link above won’t work for me but you can view it for a while on the CTV’s Canadian site. Tim’s performance is on clip 5 of 6 which you can skip to minus the commercials. Great performance as usual. http://shows.ctv.ca/Conan.aspx#clip481031

That was gorgeous. Go Sandgroper!

America loves you, Tim!

Spooky on 9th of June 2011

Wow, what an epic arrangement and performance! Would love to see Tim tour with a band back here in the UK.

Join these two FB groups if any of you are interested in seeing Tim on Top Gear and QI with Stephen Fry – I’ve been hoping for awhile that he would be a guest, but perhaps these shows need to be made aware of how big a star Tim is!

awesome as always x

Damn, stupid comma splice, changes the whole meaning of the sentence. I meant to say: Well done, Tim, not ‘Well, done, Tim’.

cheers.

Judy Lupchansky on 8th of June 2011

Could not get this video to work anywhere it’s posted, but found the clip online in Canada at http://watch.ctv.ca/#clip481031

Well, done, Tim (though I missed the ‘it’s a homophone!’ lyric; that’s one of my favourite bits of that song).

Gs on 8th of June 2011

This link doesnt work????

Megan on 8th of June 2011

Whoo go Tim Minchin! Mon the Gingers :)

Laura on 8th of June 2011

Tim, I can’t believe you’re FINALLY coming the America. I have seen every one of your Sydney shows in the last several years and when I moved back to New York your fabulous concerts were lost to me. But why not New York? If there was ever an audience that would “get” your stuff it would be in NYC. So I guess I will drive to Philadelphia. But NY would be SO HOT for you! Welcome to our country, it’s about f’n time.

Simon on 8th of June 2011

Will there be any other cities/dates announced?

Alice on 8th of June 2011

He didn’t look as cool as normal, no bright green contacts :(
Still, awesome song, and great piano playing

Steve R on 8th of June 2011

Very appropriate for Conan!

Swampfoot on 8th of June 2011

I should have figured that out – most days I am incredibly dense. :-)

Rahcle on 8th of June 2011

wonder if the americans got some of those aussie terms in there?

Evil_Lynz on 8th of June 2011

Haha, he so almost said “but fucking with the G word” instead of “Messing with..” Brilliant stuff Tim!

Hilary Day on 8th of June 2011

Love it! brilliant …..

Tracy Fitzgerald on 8th of June 2011

love it!!

Daniela on 8th of June 2011

@Swampfoot: Conan said that because they’re both red-haired, so the song was a favour to both.

Elaine (elainepixie) on 8th of June 2011

Excellent!

noodlebach on 8th of June 2011

@ swampfoot, Conan was referring to the song since they’re both firetruck tampons.

sarah on 8th of June 2011

its probably becouse conan is all so ginger so he feels the song is about him and all ginger people and the way they get teesed

Laura on 8th of June 2011

@Swampfoot Pretty sure Conan was expressing gratitude for Tim’s “only a ginger” advice… as a fellow ginger himself.

sarah on 8th of June 2011

it could be becouse conan is allso ginger so he feels hes sticking up for him and and all gingers

Lewis on 8th of June 2011

Swampfoot, I think Conan said “you did us both a favor” because of the context of the song (it being in defence of red heads). I doubt this was a last minute fill in because of the house band being involved. Doesn’t strike me as something you’d throw in at the last minute. :)

Judy on 8th of June 2011

@Swampfoot He meant because Conan is a ginger himself.

Lewis on 8th of June 2011

Awesome! May you blow them away with Rock ‘n Roll Nerd next time! :)

markbiwwa on 8th of June 2011

Tim Minchin and Conan make TimCoco; a comedic juggernaut of epic proportions and a fuzzy mane of hair.

Swampfoot on 8th of June 2011

What was with the “you did us both a favor” comment by Conan at the end? Does this mean Conan had a guest drop out and Tim filled in at the last minute?

Barney on 8th of June 2011

How don’t people know the punch line to this yet?

Natalie on 8th of June 2011

Classic performance.
Thought the first “only a ginger” would’ve got a bigger laugh though.

meanwhile on 8th of June 2011

Have you ever accidentally said the word you aren’t saying while singing this one?
