So last Sunday’s live broadcast of Tim Minchin vs the SSO was marred by gremlins in the speakers (no, not Gizmo; he wouldn’t hurt a fly and besides, he’s a mogwai) – a more technical explanation of which can be found here along with an apology from the ABC for the problems.

Well, the good news is that it will be broadcast again this Sunday; same time and same place as last time (8:30pm, ABC2). This time, though, they’ve rounded up the Stripe and his gang and are holding them in cages so that this showing will go out glitch-free!

The call for inviting your elderly relatives over to watch this still stands. Hopefully they’ll enjoy it more now that they’ll be able to hear Tim!

Oh my god, I love him! The stuffed transmission was so grrr! I had been looking forward to watching it for weeks! Then it got screwed… And then they replayed it and I was sooo happy! Tim… Beauty, Not Perfect, White wine in the sun… You make me cry! So Incredible! And thanks for the Pope song!!! I was like, OH MY GOD!!!! THAT’S HOW I FEEL!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

So glad I got to see this – was afraid we poor, Minchinally-challenged Americans would have to wait years. I am baffled by Australian television censorship, though… He could say “f*ck” (or “f**k,” har har), but not “c*nt”?

Wonderfully subversive. I want more. Please, please put on DVD.

Devastated we weren’t able to see this as it sounds fantastic. I’ve been a massive fan of Tim’s work for years, but not everyone is able to have digital TV.

Don’t understand why it was relegated to ABC2 instead of ABC1 anyway. Phoned the ABC to ask if it would be repeated on ABC1 or at least uploaded to iView, but nobody there was able to definitively answer.

When will Tim release a best of album. (what goes on it is controversial no doubt)
White wine in the sun
Not perfect
Thank you God-Sam’s Mum
The Good Book
Happy Little Africuns
Fuch the poor
If I didn’t have you
You grew on me
and other gems………………………

Brilliant x too many times. Who else is able to make you laugh, cry and think all at once. Tim is a much deeper thinker that he would like us to believe. Could keep saying nice things but I’ll just stop with, “please keep the good times coming”.

Saw the concert live at the Opera House and again last night and I will never be able to listen to Not Perfect again…….unless it has full symphony with it!! Fantastic!

Sean McKellar on 4th of April 2011

Stuff a DVD – I want this on Blu-ray!

Sue Norman, Claremont WA on 4th of April 2011

Thankyou for the broadcast Tim, the energy, vitality and compassion in the verse was a real eye opener, to someone who has not attended one of your concerts, or does not own any of your music. Having a daughter who is a percussionist, and who has performed with many orchestra situations, but who is now freelance and teaches, it was a pleasure to observe the brilliant percussive footage during the footage with the SSO. Go percussion, I say! Thanks again, for a “free” concert, in my loungeroom. I admire your ‘mind’, and braveness of honesty! Music binds it all together, as only music can.

I went to the Opera House show last week and loved it so much I watched it all over again on TV last night. Such a brilliant blend of humour and humanity. And rage insightfully aimed exactly where it should be. Bravo Tim Minchin, bravo.

whilst being caught up in being a mum of three and trapped in the realm of wiggles barbie and clone wars i actually found something on the box that had me glued to the seat thank you Tim for an experience i will remember for a long time and for reminding me that there are normal people out there in that big world of ours.

JayVee on 3rd of April 2011

What a brilliant show that was – with our without bugs…
Please release it on DVD so we can relive that phenomenal experience….

Dwayne Bakewell on 3rd of April 2011

BTW, a DVD release would be greatly appreciated. I’d love to own this

Dwayne Bakewell on 3rd of April 2011

The show was fucking awesome. I’m only a new fan of Tim but I enjoyed it very much. Very talented and very witty. I LOVE that he played the Pope Song too, definately my favourite!!

Jo on 3rd of April 2011

Jo on 3rd of April 2011

Damn – missed last week. I watched tonight and Tim’s show was absolutely brilliant. I especially loved his first encore – nice to know no-one’s perfect…. And SSO percussionist was fantastic!!!

Andrea on 3rd of April 2011

OpulentDingo on 3rd of April 2011

Just watched Tim vs SSO on ABC2… kind of by accident… ‘Who is this guy?’ I was thinking… ‘Bare feet and mascara and threatening to send your kid back to the slum orphanage…?’ …sorry – that’s probably some kind of heresy on the guys own website… anyhow – I watched the rest of the show, and yeah well, Mr Minchin turns out to be a bit of a comic genius… as a new dad ‘Lullaby’ had me grinning and squirming at the same time. Brilliant – wish I’d seen the show live. Maybe next time…
