Adelaide Fringe 2013

— December 12th, 2012

Tim FitzHigham - The Gambler is playing in the Adelaide Fringe in 2013

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.
