Quote from: Ron Superior on May 18, 2023, 08:19:04 PMFucking love Tim. Saw Mulberry in Reading. The idea of doing an entire show about lockdown is ballsy, people have had enough, and it's mostly about how tough it was for him, but it was great just cos of how unique he is. Wish I'd bought one of his Mulberry caps.
Quote from: Wayman C. McCreery on May 22, 2023, 06:06:23 PMHe's always done the high status/low status thing brilliantly but I've never seen him be so vulnerable and (at times) sincere before. A wonderful show.
Quote from: Des Wigwam on May 23, 2023, 09:07:10 AMYes that's exactly how I feel. I think that's one reason why he's such a good guest too. Where the host is someone who is more the alpha type he manages to out-alpha them but with that flawed self-confidence that could fall apart at any time. It never seems like he's also better than the listener. Late Night Poetry works really well for that reason too. Him losing the upper hand to Tom Basden is always a joy when it happens and resets things.
Quote from: heathenpoet on May 18, 2023, 12:00:03 PMSaw Mulberry last night - first time seeing Tim Key live - and thought it was fantastic. Highly recommend catching him on this tour. Great mix of one-man-play and stand-up with his slightly confrontational audience interaction, often followed up with a cheeky grin to himself.
QuoteI needed some money, so applied to a gameshow where you could win a car. They painted a picture of me as this timid character. They called me Timid Tim. Absolutely true. I won a car, a Ford Ka. Sold it a week later.
Quote from: notjosh on June 11, 2023, 10:07:22 AMCame across this by chance recently, not sure how many know about it. In 2002 Tim Key was on C5 reality show "Britain's Worst Driver". There are only a few clips online, and the only one with any significant bits of him are in the opening ep, from 18:50:

Quote from: Gurke and Hare on June 11, 2023, 04:20:21 PM"You've got to go with the flow of traffic, and the cars behind me are all going at 30mph so I will too." was great.
Quote from: stranger on June 10, 2023, 11:05:40 AMHe was great at Ally Pally last night, really enjoyed it. Agree with everything in the above post.
Quote from: Ron Superior on June 11, 2023, 02:54:48 PMI don't think it's been mentioned here but they're making a feature length film of their Herb McGwyer short. Key and Basden are still in it, Basden wrote it and Carey Mulligan's been added to the bill.

Quote from: imitationleather on June 13, 2023, 12:00:03 AMSaw him tonight at Soho Theatre and it was just fantastic. Really loved all the stuff about lockdown, it was mining humour from it with exactly the right tone. It's hard to describe to someone unless you make them sit down and watch him, but he is just a total 100% performer. I'm always in awe watching how he controls his sets and the audience viewing them.First time I'd been to see live comedy in ages and now I've only got Daniel friggin' Kitson on Thursday.
Quote from: SteveDave on June 11, 2023, 11:40:14 PMI was there too! In the front row. It was me who showed him my vaccinations card.Later on my wife and I were having a post-show drink at a pub at the bottom of the hill and he walked passed. I asked him a question about Daniel Kitson and then we spent the next 2 hours or so having more drinks together. Lovely man.
