Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe, Tim Minchin heads out with a sparkly new sow, featuring a hefty dollop of fresh material and a spoonful of the classics combined in a manner specifically designed to make you want to go to the lavatory. He won the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer in Edinburgh, 2005.
Since moving to the UK from his native Australia Tim has developed a large fan base and picked up numerous accolades with The Times calling him ‘The best musical comedian since Bill Bailey’ and The Scotsman hailing him as ‘An extraordinary performer’. Tim also has a large following in the USA where he performed a six week run in New York earlier this year as well as winning the award for Best Alternative Comedian at the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. In Australia he has performed sell-out shows across the country, most notably at the Sydney Opera House and a documentary about his life, ‘Rock’ n’Roll Nerd’ will premiere at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival.
The superstar musician, comedian, writer and actor, Tim Minchin, has been touring the UK since September 2008 with his brilliant new show, ‘Ready for This?’ direct from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. ‘Ready for This?’ features exciting new material combined with much loved vintage Minchin classics. Audiences should bring their best rock star sunglasses and prepare to be dazzled by Minchin’s stellar talent as he confronts all the pressing issues of the day: sex, death, dancing bears and ginger body hair.
“Minchin is a genuine musical virtuoso, whose songs are constructed and sung with an attention to detail that would make Rufus Wainwright sit up and look nervous. And that’s even before we get to the jokes." – The Times
