Tim will be making an appearance on Australian telly screens this Friday as part of the Friday Night Crack Up!

Friday Night Crack Up is the climax of a week of mental health programming on ABC and will air on ABC on Friday 10th October 2014 at 7:30pm.

The two-hour variety show will be hosted by Eddie Perfect and will feature stars from all of your favourite shows, comedians and musicians, and will showcase major musical numbers, in-studio parlour games, sketches and surprising performances!

Tune in to watch the likes of the X Factor judges, MasterChef’s Matt Preston, Home and Away stars Nic Westaway, Alec Snow and Bonnie Sveen, Missy Higgins and Shaun Micallef doing things you never thought you’d see them do!

Eddie Perfect said, “I can’t lie. I have no idea how a live television variety show in support of Mental Health Week is going to work because none of us have done this before. What I do know is that we have an unprecedented line-up of singers, actors, musicians, comedians and writers joining together despite their conflicting network affiliations, throwing caution to the wind and bringing their considerable gifts to the table in support of mental health. It’s precisely my anarchic idea of a good time, actually. It’s time to talk about mental health; an issue which eventually touches every single one of us. Might as well enjoy ourselves while we’re at it.”

The ABC is working with the Society for Mental Health Research (SMHR) and its President, Professor Patrick McGorry, to help boost funding for mental health research and support the effort in discovering the next breakthroughs in preventing, diagnosing and treating mental ill health.
