Tim Vine

When you see Tim Vine perform you certainly get value for money.

He is a joke machine gun, rattling out one joke after another in quick succession.  At full pelt Time sprays our 10 jokes a minute.  Keep the laughs short he’s got a lot to get through.

Sell-Out Edinburgh festival shows in 1999 I’m Vine Thanks, Tim Vine The Minotaur, 1998 Tim Vine Flat Out, 1996 The Tim Vine Shambles and 1995 The Vine Fiasco, which won him The Perrier Best Newcomer Award.

He also turned up on ITV’s Comedy Club, treating the audience there to his popular oven glove impressions.

Tim’s basic philosophy is, ‘the audience came to hear jokes so I’ll give ‘em jokes’ and that’s what he does.  He gives them several hundred very silly ones.

Catch this charming loony while he’s still alive!
