Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Comedy's one rule is 'no punching down.'
Tim Renkow is a crippled, redneck, Mexican Jew. It’s hard for him to find a group he is not allowed to make fun of, which is insulting. In a world increasingly running on the fumes of hate and discrimination Renkow is taking on all comers in this searingly honest show. Checking his own privilege at the door this straight talking stand-up is about the big conversations. Racism, religious persecution, and babies: nothing is off the table in this bitingly frank hour.
Join Tim as he tries to find a group that is off-limits and prove that he’s not the bottom of the social ladder.
Star of hit comedy series Jerk (BBC), A Brief History of Tim (BBC) and Bobby and Harriet Get Married (Viceland).
'He has beautifully crafted material, some killer one-liners and he plays in the comedy dark side as if he has night-vision goggles.'
'PUNCHING UP LIKE THE REBEL HE IS… RENKOW’S GIFT IS TO SHOW US THE WORLD FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.'
