Tim Minchin is one of my favourite comedians (along with Bill Bailey and Ross Noble). The reason Tim Minchin appeals to me so much is the fact that he is really fucking smart. I love that in comedians, where the jokes revolve around complex subjects like science and religion. You feel like you’re learning something as well as having your sides hurt from laughter.
One of my favourite things from Tim Minchin has to be his poem/story called Storm, which revolves around a hippy, called Storm, at a party. At ten minutes long it may be a bit long for some but even if you manage to listen to the first three minutes I think you’ll enjoy it!
