American folk! We bring you the good news that Tim will be returning to your TV screens tomorrow night!
On Showtime, at 11pm ET/PT, your favourite Australian dork, Tim, will be appearing alongside Eddie Izzard, Jimmy Carr, Judah Friedlander, Chris Hardwick on The Green Room with Paul Provenza.
For those unfamiliar with the show, it’s basically a load of comedians in a roundtable setting, speaking off-the-cuff and uncensored in front of a studio audience with no rules, no agenda, no censors. Given some of the taboo subject Tim sings about, this sounds to me, like a show you don’t want to be missing out on!
Tim will be appearing at Hull City Hall as part of the Hull Comedy Festival on Wednesday 26th October 2011 at 7.30pm.
He’ll be performing solo, but joining him on stage there’ll be a piano polished to a level of shininess rivaled only by those leggings and his lyrical and musical gymnastics. Bliss.
Tickets are available from the Box Office: 01482 300300 (option 2) and online here.
More information can be found on the Hull Comedy Festival website here.
The burning question, of course, is: will there be more ice fishing material?
^ One for the nerds.
Seconds out! The shoes are off… again. Once more our nerdy minstrel will be teasing his hair to improbable heights, shimmying into his tightest attire, limbering up his fingers for yet more piano gymnastics and practicing those iconic dance moves for his feet and brows – all in order to perform again with symphony orchestras across Australia.
Following the amazing success of his sell out tour in March and his acclaimed arena tour of the UK, Tim is returning to Australia early next year, for a second round with their best symphony orchestras and this time the brilliant Australian composer-conductor Iain Grandage will be wielding the baton whilst Pete Clements and Ben Van Der Wal will be back on the beat with bass and drums respectively.
Tickets go on general sale to the public Friday 2 September, 9am.
The pre-sale starts Wednesday 31st August. Those signed up to Tim’s mailing list will have the pre-sale details sent to their Inbox.
We said we’d post a reminder about the TV broadcast of the BBC’s Comedy Prom and here it is!
This Saturday, 27th August, as well as the return of Doctor Who, is the broadcast of the BBC’s Comedy Prom, as recorded on the 13th August. Fortunately they don’t clash, however, they do have something in common. What? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
They say bad things come in threes, and here to disprove this nonsense, is Tim, with a third US gig announcement this month for another three American tour dates confirmed for this Autumn!
- St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, will play host to our fine, fuzzy-haired fool on the 30th September 2011.
- Barrymore Theatre in Madison, will see our prodigal piano player on the 1st October 2011.
- Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee, will present our bright, bare-footed buffoon on the 2nd October 2011.
Tickets for all shows go on general sale on Friday at 10am. You can grab Detroit tickets from Livenation, Madison tickets from the Barrymore Theatre box office and Milwaukee tickets from the Pabst Theatre box office. There are presales available for all three shows from tomorrow at 10am, and we’ll be updating this post with the details before it starts.
And, in case you missed them earlier, there are also US dates confirmed for New York, Mesa, Dallas and Boulder. More details for each of these can be found on the gigs page.
UPDATE: Presale details are as follows. The password is ‘electric’ for Detroit and Milwaukee, with a special link here for Milwaukee tickets. Madison tickets are available now, from the updated link above.
