Joanie on 3rd of November 2009

SIm Tweed on 1st of November 2009

Wendy Burt on 1st of November 2009

Myself & my 12 year old daughter saw you for the 1st time on the Jonathan Ross show on BBC America and we instantly fell in love with you and your humor.I am 47 and married for 13 years and we live in a tiny mountain town called Willsboro,New York, next to Lake Champlain.My husband is somewhat of a “mountain man” and doesn’t appreciate english humor at all.Thank God our daughter “gets” it and we enjoyed you immensely.We look forward to anything we can see of your work.Unfortunately we have crappy dial-up computer service so no U-tube for us unless we go to the library.Thanks for the laughs,we are instant and life-long fans!

Cassie on 30th of October 2009

Hey Tim!!! I watched the interview!!!

Trust you to be able to remove the pants of the host of the shw before your interview is over! lol :D

Can’t wait to see your show in Brisbane in December!

Rock on!


Jane on 29th of October 2009

Saw your interview with Jonathan Ross – wouldn’t normally watch him cos he’s crap – but could watch you anytime cos you are so gorgeous. Music was brilliant, as always, particularly bit at the end with Jamie, but Ross was crap and could have done much better interview. Did enjoy close up of your stunning eyes though!
PS Got a lovely moody b&w pic of you on my computer desktop that I gaze at every day – makes work worthwhile!.

Ed on 29th of October 2009

watched it….brill…..you’ve got a new fan!!! Watched STORM on youtube amazing!! :)

Tom Taylor on 28th of October 2009

Reading? was that at the hexagon? I WAS THERE

Eleanor on 28th of October 2009

ahh I have already watched it 3 times. Im so lame.

Danielle on 27th of October 2009

…and it was bloody brilliant. and then after watching it a few more times on youtube for posterity I stumbled across this one and it is the treat of a lifetime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSFCDhLhuB8&feature=related

thanks tim


Shane on 27th of October 2009

Is there anywhere I could download that song cuz it was unbelieveable.
Also you should definetly do more shows in Ireland I missed your last one

Fi on 27th of October 2009

Tim – absolute GENIUS on Wossy! I saw you 2 weeks ago in Aberdeen and just LOVED you! Actually made me cry laughing. Utter comedy gold!

Liana AGE :13 on 27th of October 2009

OMG u was so cool an i found i hilarious wen u started singin nd playin piano with that other guy .. you pushed him under the piano hahahhaha hilarious. by luv ur music btw.x

KellyAnnLovesTimMinchin on 26th of October 2009

Friday Night With Jonathan Ross was AMAZING!
im really really liking Five Poofs & Two Pianos – it still makes me laugh so hard now, and its days later.
Tim Minchin is gorgeous, and gets cuter each time i see him, he came on the screen, and i just thought: ‘God, he’s hot!’
I really do love him and i hope he goes even further, and i hope i can somehow get tickets for his Ready For This tour.
He is rather cute.

Melissa on 26th of October 2009

I sat up all night waiting for this, I couldn’t belive it when he was on last and Boy George was taking forever :O
Five Poofs and Two Pianos is already on my iPod haha, what an amazing song and an amazingly funny interview :D

Digitalgoldfish on 26th of October 2009

Hey Tim

Saw you on Friday night at Hammersmith Apollo. I saw you a year ago at 9 lessons, and you were the star of the show; putting even Dawkins in the shade! Seeing you on Friday in full flow for a full length show was just brilliant. I’ve never seen a comedian get a standing ovation before, but you deserved it. I don’t want to take away from your own achievement, but for me, comparisons with Eddie Izzard are obvious. I’ve seen him 4 or 5 times, and I think you were actually better. There are only bigger things to come! Just promise you’ll continue to come to Skeptics events, even when you are really really famous!

Jemma Thomas on 25th of October 2009

I must have watched it around 3 times now, I think its hilariously funny. Especially when he pulls down ”wossy’s” trousers. Awesome! A must-see! :)

Kyla on 25th of October 2009

I watched Tim on Wossy’s show and was so impressed I decided to get tickets to the show last night. Definitely worth it. Got to love how you can do this sort of thing in London!

I will be keeping an eye out for the next show, and aim to get tickets much sooner so closer to the action (last row in the venue due to the late notice). I will also be telling all my friends about the show, will gain you a few more Kiwi fans.

Kim on 25th of October 2009

Tim, you were great on “Wossie”! Have only discovered who you are, better late than never!

emma ( pixie ) on 25th of October 2009

OMG !!!!! i watch you last night on WOSSY and you were amazing…. i love you !!! -x-

Anna Reece on 25th of October 2009

You were GREAT!! loved that song, so clever and funny! I hadn’t heard of you before now but am now a fan.

Matt Peet on 24th of October 2009

Absolutely fantastic, this guy is a genious… must catch him on tour.

Margaret Crombie on 24th of October 2009

Never heard of Tim before Mr Woss!! On my god, frigging hilarious, please visit Scotland again!

jOE bAKER on 24th of October 2009

Funny guy ! Great banter between the 2 of them, loks like an iterestin guy !

Lauren on 24th of October 2009

It was awesome, by far the better musician too xx

Lyndsey Evans on 24th of October 2009

Great job on Wossy Tim!! :) I especially loved the duet you did with Jamie Cullum, particularly when you kept swapping places whilst still playing – genius!! We had interchangeable musicians in my jazz band and it was so cool when they swapped instruments mid-solo.

Hope the Apollo gig is going well tonight – cannot wait to see you tomorrow night!!! x

Cy on 24th of October 2009

I saw it! XD
Tim was hilarious~

Not many people can intimidate 50 Cent!!

rachel on 24th of October 2009

Thought you were brillant on the johnathan ross show and you do have nice green eyes, very sexy *wink wink*

Adam on 24th of October 2009

Seen Tim on the buzzcocks a few times and didnt really know who he was, checked out some of his videos and think the guy is brill. A great comic and his songs are great if he tried to make it mainstream im sure he could no problem at all although i hope he sticks with the comedy. He was great on johnathan Ross show too.

Check out Inflatable You

Hannah on 24th of October 2009

Hey Timmy, Please please please can you do another gig in york, or leeds maybe! Im dying to see you :)

Hannah on 24th of October 2009

Sammie on 24th of October 2009

Richard Hall on 24th of October 2009

Curtis on 24th of October 2009

The song which he played was very very funny!It was very on topic when you consider recent events.

Sarah B on 24th of October 2009

Just saw Tim, on Ross, sooooo amazing funny and clever. As a budding musical comedian myself , its great that you’re getting well known as I’ve had other comedians (ok Chortlers) say to me that what I’m doing isn’t proper comedy. You give me confidence to continue developing songs. I love you – in a purely platonic and of course envious way.

Annah on 24th of October 2009

That was a really great show last night :) Good luck with hammersmith :) x

Mark Brockway on 24th of October 2009

Without doubt Tim was possibly the most original and brilliantly funny guest ever to grace the Ross sofa. Great gig Tim.

Keith on 24th of October 2009

Great song on the show, and also the duet with Jamie Cullum too was good, Tim is a musical and comical genius, I want to see him live on tour sometime, maybe next tour you can do a show in Bedford?

Dressed in Black on 24th of October 2009

Someone was really quick in putting 5 Poofs & 2 Pianos up on YouTube for us non UK dwellers.


Rhiannon on 24th of October 2009

Just got back from the Apollo which was amazing, and went straight to iplayer for Wossy, absolutely loved it, only a bit disappointed it was Johnathan with his trousers down, not Tim

Robin Mitchell on 24th of October 2009

OneLooseNut on 23rd of October 2009

Ann T on 23rd of October 2009

Brill Tim on Jonathan Ross – a frenzied breath of fresh air to comedy, can’t wait to see you at Hammersmith tomorrow night…PURLEASE do ‘If I didn’t have you……..’

Meg on 23rd of October 2009

Everybody loves you now… except the Daily Mail and Jan Moir, but who needs them. Please put the 5 puffs and 2 pianos as an extra on the new DVD. Pretty please. I actually need it in my life.
Another advantage is that I no longer have to explain who this Tim Minchin person on my bag is. So thanks.
