December 2012

Tim’s had his photo taken again! This time it’s an intimate and pensive shot for Tough Crowd, an exhibition of photographs by Dave Brown (‘Bollo’ the Gorilla from The Mighty Boosh) in partnership with Afrikids.

They are portraits of many fine and well-loved comedians on the circuit, including: Tim, Tony Law, Tim Key, Ross Noble, Bill Bailey, Richard Ayoade, Julia Davis, Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt, Nick Helme, Sara Pascoe, Davis O’Doherty, Chris Addison and many many more. Brown asked Tim and all his subjects to recall their worst moments on stage in order to capture some of the ‘dark side’ to stand up and achieve a moody and melancholy air to the collection.

The exhibition is at The Strand Gallery until 15th December 2012.

Limited edition prints are being sold here with all profits going to AfriKids, which is a child rights organisation working to improve life for Ghana’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

They are available in A3 size for £50 and A2 for £75. So you can browse the whole impressive collection via the link above or go straight to A3 Tim or A2 Tim for that Christmas gift that makes you popular forever or that treat to yourself just ’cause, in the knowledge that you are helping out a terrific charity which does amazing work.

Afrikids work ranges from traditional children’s projects including foster homes, schools and street child centres as well as tackling complex cultural issues such as child trafficking and child labour. You can donate or find out more about their work here.

Tim will be helping Tom and Alex celebrate the forthcoming apocalypse on their End of the World special, tomorrow morning, 7th December 2012, on triple j by providing the songs for the last ever Like A Version!

He’ll be live in the studio to perform one of his own tunes and his own interpretation of someone else’s. The show starts at 6am, but if that’s too early for you, the ATT* will be 7am-8:30am.

There’s no word as to what Tim will be playing, so you’ll have to tune in to find out which song he’ll be murdering lovingly re-imagining.

Tim will be on Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1 this afternoon. The show airs between 1pm and 4pm but the ATT* is 2:40pm.

They’ll be playing the lovely new studio version of ‘White Wine In The Sun’, available on iTunes and now Amazon too, the December proceeds for which all go to the National Autistic Society, as Tim announced here.

If you can’t listen live you’ll be able to catch it on the BBC iPlayer later.

As some of you might have already spotted on Twitter, the long clamoured for official Matilda The Musical Songbook is now available for pre-order from The RSC here and Musicroom here! You can see the song list and preview some of the book’s pages via those links.

It is released on Monday 10th December 2012.

This songbook presents all Tim’s songs from the show, arranged for voice and piano with chord symbols. There’s also an eight-page colour photo section and Tim’s written an exclusive foreword/tip sheet explaining a little about his writing for Matilda and giving hints as to how everyone can enjoy the book to the max!

If you’re in the UK, you can watch some of the cast perform one of the show-stopping favourites on the 100th Royal Variety Performance tonight, Monday 3rd December, at 7:30pm on ITV.
