If you’re in the UK and not yet got yourself a copy of the rocking Tim Minchin and The Heritage Orchestra, Live in Manchester CD, then here’s some good news for you!

On the 31st October, next Monday, this album will be properly released and, for the first time in the UK, available in your local independent record shop (or HMV)! Of course, if they have an appalling taste in music and haven’t got it in stock, then you’ll be able to order it in.

Alternatively, you can order it online from the usual places, who are also offering pre-orders for it at the moment!

There’s something a bit special on the radio today! Tim will be appearing live on In Tune with his Matilda The Musical partner-in-crime, Dennis Kelly. The dastardly duo (Tim’s Muttley, obviously) will be discussing the imminent opening of the musical and Tim will also being performing snippets of songs from the show!

In Tune will be broadcast on Radio Three, today at 4:30pm, and will be available on iPlayer afterwards. Also, as it’s radio, this is will be available for for everyone to listen to!

As if that wasn’t enough to get excited by, Channel 4 (and Channel 4 HD, for those with unhealthy obsession with pores and follicles) seem to be dedicating their late night schedule to Tim this Friday!

The whole thing starts at 10:35pm when Tim will be making his second appearance on 8 out of 10 Cats alongside Rachel Riley, Vernon Kay and Joe Wilkinson. After having to deal with Uri Gellar on his last appearance, this one should be a doddle…

Immediately after 8 out of 10 Cats, at 11:05pm, Channel 4 will be premiering a cut-down version of Tim’s ‘Ready For This?‘! Filmed at Hammersmith Apollo, years ago (approximately two), this will be worth watching if only for the flashy lights and impressive pyrotechnics and choreography. Oh, and there’ll be a weird-looking bloke bashing out a few tunes on a piano too, if you’re into that kind of thing.

If the thrill of an ARIA nomination wasn’t enough, Tim is up for yet another award, with this one being his first for his work on Matilda The Musical!

Specifically, Tim has been shortlisted for Best Stage Work at the British Composer Awards. He’s up against Orlando Gough, for his work on A Ring A Lamp A Thing, and Joby Talbot, for his work on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The winners will be announced on the 30th November.

This isn’t the only award Matilda The Musical is up for at the moment, with it being up for Best Musical Production, and Bertie Carvel being up for Best Performance in a Musical at the Theatre Awards UK! Winners for those will be announced on the 30th October.

As if you needed another reason or three to book your tickets to see it!

Irish Juice!

by Linzy 18th Oct | 6 comments

Irish folk, did you lament the lack of an interview with Tim on last week’s Late, Late Show? Well if you fancy tuning into the ultra-hip and trendy* teenage magazine show Juice, today on RTÉ Two at 5:30pm then you’ll be able to see an interview with him! It will also be on the RTÉ Player afterwards.

UK folk, unfortunately, unlike The Late, Late Show, you won’t be able to catch this one after it’s aired on the RTÉ Player.

*might be a lie – I’ve never seen the show

Comedy at Altitude!

by Shell 17th Oct | 6 comments

Tim will be appearing at the Altitude Comedy Festival in Mayrhofen, Austria, 26 – 31st March 2012. He’ll be performing comedy après ski not giving skiing lessons but will doubtless be donning some winter sports apparel, befitting a style icon,* at some point.

The idea is you spend your days skiing or snowboarding on the slopes and if you survive that and stay out of plaster, you can rest your aching limbs and soothe any chafed bits whilst enjoying comedy festival fun in the evenings.

If you fancy 6 days of comedy, winter sports, spas and partying then Altitude Comedy Festival is sold as an accommodation and entertainment package. You can check out the full details and line ups here or if you’re feeling lucky there’s an opportunity to win 5 pairs of tickets just by signing up to their mailing list.

*shiny hot pink salopettes and perhaps some mittens…
