TIM KEY: Work in Progress
Known for his pioneering Edinburgh shows mixing comedy with deliberately bad poetry, Tim scooped the main prize in 2009 and has never looked back. You probably seen him as Alan Partridge’s put-upon sidekick, Sidekick Simon, in Mid-Morning Matters or Alpha Papa. Or maybe the final series of Peep Show, or contributing poems to Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe, or the criminally underrated sketch show Cowards. Either way he’s incredible.
Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2009
“In any other sphere apart from comedy, we’d probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius” – Telegraph
‘This is one art house form-buster who can really give you a good time.’ – ★★★★ Times
“At times it’s like a wind-up; elsewhere it’s so lovely you could bathe in it” – ★★★★ Guardian
“He’s a genius plain and simple”- Time Out
ANDY BARR: Tropic of Admin
Marooned on a tropical island, HR Administrator of the Year 2011 Andy Barr spies a cruise ship on the horizon and vows to put on the greatest management conference Micronesia has ever seen. Andy Barr is a member of the Weirdos collective, ‘Rising star’ (Laugh Out London) and shambolic degenerate.
“Andy Barr is one of the best up and coming idiots out there. As he takes you along to a desert island, mark this show in your programme like buried treasure” – John Kearns
