Tim Vine announces London date

The king of one-liners will take to the Hammersmith Apollo on the 11 May 2018.

Known for his quick-witted one-liners, comedy veteran and perpetual funny man Tim Vine has announced a headline performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on the 11 May 2018.

Vine recently brought audience to tears of joy at the world famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he has previously been awarded for the funniest joke at the comedy festival.
Sunset Milk Idiot sees Time Vine blend his quick fire jokes with props, song and audience participation, with the comedian delivering suitably frantic hilarity.

Vine, also known for his turn in the BBC series Not Going Out which he left in 2012, will be bringing his unique comedy show to London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Fans can expect Vine to touch upon pixie football, ice cream and nibble feeders.

Come along, sit down, and laugh. The quantity won’t let up. This is comedy without a message. What an odd person. What a lot of nonsense. What else is he going to do? ‘Sunsets are in the sky, milk’s nice, and I’m an idiot.’

Tim Vine’s history with the Edinburgh Fringe goes back to the mid-90s where he was awarded the Perrier newcomer award in 1995. A spectacular publicity stunt in 2008 saw him erect a massive billboard oddly advertising his absence at that year’s festival.

Vine’s TV and radio career has seen him deliver his endless joke repertoire on various game and adventure shows. He’s currently hosting the second season of The Time Vine Chat Show on BBC Radio 4.

As well as his Fringe awards, Tim Vine broke the World Record for the most jokes told in an hour, reaching 499 in October 2004. The award has since been broken by fellow comedian Taylor Goodwin (reportedly inspired by Vine) in November 2014.

Fans can grab Sunset Milk Idiot tickets 24 hours early through our Ticketmaster presale from 10:00 on Thursday 28 September 2017, before they go on general sale at 10:00 on Friday 29 September.
