Tim Vine @ The Balham Comedy Festival

  • The Bedford 77 Bedford Hill London, SW12 9HD United Kingdom (map)

When it comes to straightforward, no-nonsense wordplay and joke telling, Tim Vine has established himself as the national cornerstone at the very least. He is still the holder of the Guinness World Record with 499 jokes told in an hour.

As well as success on a number of TV shows and starring roles in pantos, Vine has become a Fringe regular and national favourite and gone on to perform numerous sell-out tours and festivals in the UK and beyond. He has released DVDs such as Punslinger Live and Jokeamotive Live, and his vast wealth of material has been preserved in books such as The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book and The Tim Vine Bumper Book Of Silliness..

The punslinger returns with new jokes, silly songs and twitchy dancing. Joke, joke, joke. Prop, prop, prop. Song, song, song. (Sorry, the laptop’s jammed.) It’s time to put the satire on hold and watch a grown man act the goat. Come along and enjoy the nonsense.

WARNING: This show will contain wobbly props, one reference to a panda and a song about getting water in your ear after swimming.

‘Vine is a supreme punmeister.’ (Time Out)

‘Must-see manic hilarity.’ ***** (Edinburgh Reporter)

‘Offering line after line of glorious goofing.’ ***** (The Times).
