Tim’s second live UK DVD, Ready for This? was filmed in front of a justifiably enthusiastic audience during a sell-out, 3-night run at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, in London.

In this spectacular show, Tim confronts the pressing issues of the day: environmentalism, rationalism, prejudice(ism) and his amour de boobs(ism). The universal human experiences of love, truth… ginger body hair and um… dancing bears?…are all there to enlighten us and make us giggle.

Ready For This? features: Prejudice, If I Didn’t Have You, Bears Don’t Dig On Dancing, Canvas Bags, Confessions, White Wine In The Sun, the acclaimed nine minute beat poem; Storm and many more.

The DVD comes with an exclusive 28-page ‘Songbook‘ of, often handwritten and annotated, lyrics and with some photos from the tour. The show is also available on Blu-ray but the songbook is not available with that format.

Extras on both formats include: the animated internet sensation Pope Song, an interview and performance of 5 Poofs and 2 Pianos from Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and a music video: Google Street View, made for The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, 2009.

Here, for your delectation is a lovely clip from the show: Tim singing ‘If I Didn’t Have You’ in a in a pair of delightfully uncomfortable, yet stylish, skinny jeans and featuring a particularly fine example of the, now world famous ‘Wiggle’…oh yes.

Ready For This? will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and iTunes from 29th November 2010.

You can pre-order your copy now, here.

Psstt! We’ll be announcing an exciting competition in relation to this release, very soon, so keep an eye on this site from time to time…just one eye…no need to overdo it.

EDIT: To answer a couple of questions that are already popping up:
This is a new recording for the UK DVD but it is the same show as Ready For This? recorded at the Enmore in Sydney and released in Australia already. There are brand new ‘talky bits’ and ‘If You Really Loved Me’ replaces ‘You Tube Lament’ – this is reflected in the ‘Songbook’. The Extras are…extra too.
For those not based in the UK, if you cannot order via the link then it will be available from this site and other retailers who ship worldwide, at some point.

Jenny on 29th of October 2010

Hey, I’m wondering… does anyone know if the disc would work on a play station 3 in the U.S.? Because I want this video dammit.
Would they even send it to me here?

The Canadians and Americans who stated above they believed they couldn’t purchase the DVDs — read Tim’s FAQ:

I don’t live in Australia or the UK – how can I buy your merchandise?

The “from” on the merchandise page simply indicates from where the merchandise is being sent; both the UK shop and the Australian shop will happily ship things internationally.

Filming of Lost, I mean. That will teach me to comment when I should have been parenting (it probably won’t though). Don’t judge me.

Tracey/rm on 17th of October 2010

Two DVDs I’ve been looking forward to this year, this, and the last season of Lost. (ok, 3 if you count Toy Story 3, 4 if you count any avatar special editions). I was there, both days (and the Friday too, well colour me stalker) so I know this will be amazing, if only I had been there for the filming off Lost…

The extras sound brilliant!

And I’ll keep one eye casually on this site from time to time.

It’s probably really dorky off me, but I think it will be really lovely to have a DVD of something I saw live. I know lots of people already have this, for various things, not just you/Tim, but I don’t.

I pre-ordered this as soon as it was available to do so. I was lucky enough to be there on the Saturday, second row centre. The show was freakin’ sweet and I’m totally looking forward to the next one at the O2 in December! I hope there will be a DVD release of that one as well.
