Tim FitzHigham: Gentleman Adventurer
— May 25th, 2011
"Tim FitzHigham is part comedian, part old-school gentleman adventurer" - The Guardian
After a year away from the Edinburgh Festival, Gentleman Adventurer opened in 2010 aboard a leaky pirate ship in the middle of the Pleasance courtyard.
All the adventures Tim had been storing up over the preceding year tumbled out: inflatables down olympic ski runs, the dangers with paragliding and marriage and his greatest adventure to date - becoming a Dad. The audience numbers were up and the rain came down to see Tim at his best fighting to preserve a way of life...albeit a totally ridiculous one.
Following the festival Gentleman Adventurer went off on tour.
