Time Out Sydney

This event has finished

It's not that they won't let him in the house, rather they worry about the fans

Tim Minchin on a piano on steps is a dangerous proposition for those who care about the direct effects of gravity but a tremendous idea for those who like humour, music, satire, social commentary or humorous musical satirical commentary.

Before the long-haired red head from Perth was a globally acclaimed stage musical writer, movie maker, stage actor, concert Judas and television star, even before he was commissioned to write a musical about Penrith - but after he moved from Perth to Melbourne to try and play piano for a living - Minchin was an acidically, viciously and relentlessly brilliant writer of stand up comedy performed to music while sitting at a piano.

This is your only scheduled chance to see him in that mode in 2015. The one where he wears the eyeliner and breaks into beat poetry about Storm (hopefully). It's sure to be brilliant.
