Tim Minchin is an Australian musician, composer, songwriter, actor, comedian and writer. He has been performing his unique brand of musical comedy in front of appropriately excitable and ever-growing audiences since starting out in South Melbourne's Butterfly Club in 2005. He won the Directors' Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his break-out show Darkside, and followed this later the same year with one of the most successful debut acts ever at the Edinburgh Fringe - winning the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer.

He plays the piano, always nicely and oftentimes uproariously and excitingly, whilst looking wonderfully athletic in a pair of delightfully uncomfortable skinny jeans. As well as his grand piano and apparel befitting a style guru, Tim is joined onstage by his iconic dance moves, wildly teased hair, gently calmed eyebrows, natural aplomb and his enormous… sense of occasion.

During 2009 and 2010, Tim wrote the music and lyrics for Matilda The Musical with the Royal Shakespeare Company. This adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic ran, from November 2010 until January 2011, in Stratford-upon-Avon and then transferred triumphantly to London's West End, at the Cambridge Theatre in October 2011, winning great critical acclaim and a stack of awards.

In the UK, in 2010, Tim joined Robert Llewelyn for Carpool, hosted an episode of Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC) and appeared on Genius  (BBC) and 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4). He's also performed on radio; his most recent project being  Strings, a brand new comedy sitcom pilot for BBC Radio 2, which he both wrote and starred in. He also joined the regulars for an episode of The Infinite Monkey Cage  on BBC Radio 4 in 2010.
