Master of the one-liner, Tim Vine will play Hall For Cornwall on Saturday 19 May, telling lots of silly new jokes, showing off new homemade props, singing some new daft ditties, and all with the appearance of confidence.

His new show, Sunset Milk Idiot, will touch upon subjects including pixie football, ice cream and nibble feeders, and the quantity won't let up, in this comedy without a message.

Tim Vine sold out the entire run of his new show at the Edinburgh Festival, where he had previously won the award for Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe in 2010 and 2014, as well as runner-up spots in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Fresh from his success on BBC Radio 4 with The Tim Vine Chat Show, which has just finished its second series, and on BBC One with the very silly Tim Vine Travels Through Time, he is arriving in Truro with a new barrage of daft jokes and songs.

Since winning the Perrier Newcomer award at the Fringe in 1995, the former world record holder for most jokes told in an hour has gone on to perform numerous sell-out tours and festivals in the UK and beyond. On the back of these shows he has released five stand up DVDs including Punslinger, Jokeamotive and Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim To You, and his material has been preserved in books such as The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book and The Tim Vine Bumper Book Of Silliness.

Besides stand-up, Vine has had television success with Not Going Out, The Sketch Show and Blandings, and he wrote, directed and performed in the feature film Fearmoth which will premiere at the Brighton Film Festival in November 2017. He also presented game shows including Whittle, Fluke and Don’t Blow The Inheritance, was a finalist in Let’s Dance For Comic Relief 2013, and won Sport Relief's Let's Play Darts.

Tim Vine, supported by comedy magician John Archer, will be at the Hall for Cornwall on Saturday, May 19, at 7.30pm, and tickets are available at or on 01872 262466.
