It’s been a while since there was a bit of new Tim footage on UK TV, but Comedy Central will be putting an end to that this week!
On Saturday 29th March, at 10pm, Comedy Central will be showing the best bits from the Just for Laughs festival from recent years, including one of Tim’s performances from 2011!
The show will also feature some wonderful appearances from Rich Hall, Russell Kane, Mark Watson, and Kristen Schall, as if the fuzzy-haired one isn’t reason enough alone for you to tune in.
After rocking out American and Australian TV sets as Atticus Fetch last year, you’ll soon be able to grab a copy of Californication Season 6 to watch Tim live out his rock star fantasies whenever you want!
Want to watch a particular scene over and over again? Not a problem. Missed the season entirely? Well you’ll be able to fix that. Want to skip all the bits with Tim in? Well, you could, but we don’t condone that kind of activity here…
That’s right, Season 6 of Californication is coming to DVD (and to Blu-Ray as well in Australia) in quite a few countries over the next month, so here’s a handy guide as to where and when you can get hold of it.
US: 25th March 2014 – DVD
Canada: 25th March 2014 – DVD
UK: 14th April 2014 – DVD
Australia: 23rd April 2014 – DVD and Blu-Ray
France: 23rd April – DVD

If your country isn’t on the list, please check with your local retailer as it might still be being released in your area.
Look at how excited Tim is about this!
On Sunday 15th June at 3pm, the Royal Shakespeare Company will present the first ‘relaxed performance’ of Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre in the West End. The National Autistic Society is working closely with the RSC on this special performance offering full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities.
Tim: “Through no work of my own, two of my favourite organisations – The Royal Shakespeare Co and the National Autistic Society – have come together to organise a relaxed performance of one of my favourite musicals! I’m so bloody chuffed it’s happening, and only wish I could be there to witness it.”
The performance will provide a relaxed environment, with elements of the production adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels will be adjusted to soften their impact and there will be a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around the auditorium during the performance. Designated ‘chill-out’ areas will be provided outside the auditorium with soft seating and activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
Tickets for this performance will be offered at the reduced rate of £20 and can be booked through the RSC Ticket Hotline 0844 800 1110 or in person at the Cambridge Theatre box office.
All those who book will be sent a visual story to help them familiarise themselves with the plot, characters and the setting before they arrive at the theatre. Further event details can be found on the dedicated RELAXED PERFORMANCE section of the Matilda the Musical website.
The original cast recording of Matilda the Musical is available from iTunes and on CD. The CD is available from the RSC Shop or the SHOP tab on this site.
Tim will be performing at KROQ’s 6th Annual Kevin & Bean’s April Foolishness show on Saturday 5th April, 2014, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
He’ll be joining an all-star line up including Jim Jefferies, Patton Oswalt, Adam Carolla, Marc Maron, Doug Benson, Eddie Ifft, and Taylor Williamson. For full event details, including the various price bands, take a look at the KROQ website.
Tickets go on sale Friday 14th March at 12:00pm, via Ticketmaster.com and all participating Ticketmaster outlets.
This year’s proceeds from Kevin & Bean’s April Foolishness will be donated to Fisher House and Cedars-Sinai NICU.
The show is sure to sell out, so best get a wriggle on if you fancy some foolishness this April!
UPDATE: (2nd April 2014) Unfortunately Marc Maron will no longer be performing but the amazing Reggie Watts has stepped up to join the line-up.
The spectacular Tim Minchin And The Heritage Orchestra (Live At The Royal Albert Hall) will be on E4 tonight/the early hours of Saturday 8th March, at 12:25am.
Filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2011. Tim’s joined on stage by the awesome 55-piece Heritage Orchestra, led by Jules Buckley, and by Pete Clements on bass and Brad Webb on drums. Oh the majesty!
The concert features orchestrations of old favourites such as You Grew on Me, Not Perfect, Dark Side, Prejudice and Rock ‘n’ Roll Nerd, as well as newer classics like Thank You God, Lullaby and many more. It’s a heady mix of soaring music in a very special, wonderfully lit setting with Tim’s sharp satirical comedy and iconic dance moves.
Behold, a marvellously cheesy taster and a look at the fabulous Royal Albert Hall:
E4 is showing edited highlights. If you’d like to see the full show, the DVD is available from the UK & Europe Shop and the Australasia Shop. Both ship internationally if you are outside these regions and we’ll announce on this site as soon as it is available in North America.
