Tim Minchin is a musician, comedian, actor and writer. He has toured his solo work throughout the UK, Australia and the US, garnering rave reviews and an ever-growing army of disturbingly passionate fans. His 2010 show “Tim Minchin Versus The Heritage Orchestra” sold out at the O2 arena and the Royal Albert Hall, and his Australian concert with the Sydney Symphony was broadcast live nationwide.
In 2009 the RSC commissioned Tim and playwright Dennis Kelly, along with director Matthew Warchus, to adapt a Roald Dahl story into a stage show. The result – Matilda the Musical – is one of the most critically acclaimed theatre pieces in West End history, and opened on Broadway in April this year (2013).
In 2012 Tim acted in the 6th season of the Showtime hit, Californication. His character, Atticus Fetch, is a long-haired rockstar trying to write a Broadway musical.
Projects in the past year included reprising the role of Judas for the Australian tour and playing a title role in the new Sydney Theatre Company production of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, writing songs for a DreamWorks Animation feature, working on a new stage musical and attempting to spend less time away from his wife and kids.
