Welcome to my website home - thanks for popping in...
I can't wait to get to the Adelaide Fringe during February and March. I'm doing two shows The Gambler - it's a funny show about the 10 greatest bets in history - there are loads of videos about it here - there's me racing a horse, betting with Top Gear's Richard Hammond, cross country cheeseboard rolling and other stuff too...have a look, go on take a punt...
...there are Reviews about the show too if you'd like to see them...
Also out in Adelaide I'll be doing my show about legendary 1950s and 60s double act Flanders and Swann show - chaotic and brilliant musical comedy at it's very finest. I hope to see you there - do say hello. I look forward to meeting you.
A special radio-friendly version of The Gambler can now be heard on the BBC Radio 4 website, and there are some amusing video clips from the recording session. The show was recorded in front of a live audience at the BBC Radio Theatre, where such great comedy as The Goon Show was recorded.

Just doing a bit of a scoot round the web for reviews of Tim's latest show, Stop the Pigeon. And turned up rather a lot of nice words!
"a talent on par with an Izzard or Bailey"
"If you wish more standups had something to say and were better at saying it, then you could do very much worse than to check out FitzHigham."
- from Fringe Review
"It’s joyous, it’s absurd, it’s the perfect comedy alternative to the Olympics. Fitzhigham is onto a winner."
- from Edinburgh Festivals
"God bless FitzHigham – the Fringe would be noticeably blander without his ridiculous capers."
"a captivating raconteur"
- from Three Weeks
"some of the most refreshing stand up and entertainment I have seen in quite some time"
"the audience were gripped by the seat of their pants, bent double with hysterical laughter"
"go see this impresario at work and savour every moment you can until someone from the BBC wakes up and throws a TV contract his way"
- from Broadway Baby
"FitzHigham keeps you on the edge of your seat"
- from The Skinny
"what a rollicking good ride it is"
- from Edinburgh is Funny

In this bet, Richard Hammond bets that Tim can't push a wheelbarrow from Ware (Hertfordshire) to Shoreditch (London).
Tim will reveal the details and result of the bet in his show Tim FitzHigham: Gambler
