Famous Local Comedian Returns to Region...
Award-winning comedian-author-adventurer and East-Anglian lad, Tim FitzHigham, returns to the Theatre Royal on 19th July to delight audiences with his cheeky charm once more.
Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Frank Skinner, Cambridge Footlights and Steve Coogan, FitzHigham is amongst the elite set of comedians nominated for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award, formerly known as the Perrier Award.
Winner of countless other comedy accolades and bonkers record-breaking endeavours, the comedian is notorious for his bizarre charitable feats as much as his humour. He is returning to the comedy circuit and his home county, following a sell-out international tour of Flanders and Swann: At the Drop of a Hippopotamus. A show that, almost unbelievably, ran from 2001 to 2013, attracting growing audiences as it spread its silliness across the continents.
"In a diverse field of comedy, FitzHigham is a solid bet"- The Age
Recognising his penchant for prompting laughs wherever he goes, BBC Radio 4 were quick to sign up the Suffolk-based comedian, giving FitzHigham his own show, The Gambler, which offered a hilarious look at the ten greatest gambles and weirdest wagers in history. For those who missed his soiree on the radio waves in April, this theatrical adaptation offers a rare opportunity to see this talented man perform live in the intimate theatre.
This lovely show, with its roots very much here in the East, will undoubtedly be of international quality.
