    Does anyone else like him?

    Just seen this video and pretty much sums him up for anyone who doesnt know (contains bad language).

    Tim Minchin's Storm the Animated Movie


    Brilliant!

    Modern day Richard Stilgoe
    He was ginger too, coincidentally.
    I love comedy, but I can't stand music based comedy.

    He does a lot of non musical comedy as well arguably much better.

    Wasn't aware of that, I thought 99% was piano based comedy.
    Like Victoria Wood, but with wood....

    The trouble is most of the youtube videos etc concentrate on the songs but I've seen him a couple of times and he does talk a lot between all the songs. Recently I think he's doing less comedy songs.

    He's brilliant. Went to see him a couple of years ago and it was a great show.

    Like a lot of these people he does behind the scenes stuff as well e.g. writing things he doesn't appear in.

    My mate has showed me some of his comedy songs. Not really to my taste although there's no doubt he's a brilliant pianist

    The down under version of Clare Balding.
    The Antipodean version of Vermin Kay.
    The Australian version of Rolf Harris.

    etc.

    Would rather watch Rolf Harris. Didn't even realise he was supposed to be a comedian until the girlfriend asked why I wasn't laughing. Awful.

    Wouldn't say I'm a huge fan, just a bit of an admirer.

    That "Storm" though is very, very good IMO

    For music based comedy, which I like in small doses, Bill Bailey for me.

    Part Troll is my favourite Bill Bailey show, but that could be because it's the one I saw 1st and all the others have been pretty much the same (not in a bad way)

    Also the one where he did dueling banjos with the guy on the zitar (sp) was amazing. Goose bumps.

    I saw TM in the Uncaged monkeys tour and in torrential rain at Eden. He is a fantastic pianist and an enormous intellect who puts into words what the rest of us dare to think. IMO of course.

    Love him, an utter genius and very refreshing from standard comedians.

    Saw him at the O2 with a full orchestra and it was amazing. Would love to see him in a smaller venue with just his piano :smashin:
