Tim Minchin, EARTH and Theatre Club

Our esteemed patron Tim Minchin has written a few words about his career and upcoming appearance hosting the BBC Comedy Proms in London.

Tim Minchin

I have managed in recent years to stumble upon a lovely and fun career by getting onstage and saying whatever I like in whatever form I enjoy. And what I like to say is often “motherf****r” and “pope” and “cancer” and “cheese” (among many more esoteric appellations), and the form I enjoy is often disco or funk or beat poetry or shouting. So you can understand why I am quietly shocked that people choose to buy tickets and watch me at all.


A few words from emerging director Jeffrey Jay Fowler on the recent first session with the “Earth Eight”

First two days of the theatre devising workshop went fantastically. I was totally blown away by the calibre of the ideas and the intelligence that the actor creators brought to the table. We had discussions on topics ranging from the sexualisation of children to the effects of technology on our happiness to materialism to the meaning of life to the faults of the education system to ageism and so on.. As well as that, the physical devising work we did was really promising. I’m feeling pretty great about it to be honest. Especially because when I asked why we were making a show and what we all wanted to do, the answer was to create something entertaining but still meaningful.
