Headline set from... TiM RENKOW
Tim moved to London from the United States at the age of 22 to study creative writing and promptly started performing stand-up comedy, through which he found a platform to display his unique point of view.
His critically-acclaimed one man shows, AT LEAST HELL HAS RAMPS and KIM JONG-UN, MUHAMMAD, JESUS AND OTHER POWER HUNGRY MANIACS, earned him the Leicester Square Best Newcomer Award, The
Amused Moose Comedy Award and a Chortle Best Newcomer nomination
His act has been described as “truly original” (Danny Wallace (off of the telly)), whereas he’s been called “suave and chirpy” by that publishing powerhouse, the Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.
For some reason, this means that he has been likened to “the future Frank Skinner” (Birmingham Metro) and “Dylan Moran’s younger brother” (The Stage). How this is possible remains a mystery.
A slightly less lazy journalist said that he “shows scant regard for the hackneyed conventions of stand-up” (The Scotsman) which, he’s been assured, is a Good Thing. His two favourite quotes are that he “destroyed my concrete belief that all comperes are twats” (eyeonmoseley.com) and that “his quick tongue and dry sense of humour kept me laughing” (BBC Tees).
