Tim Batt is finally coming to Sydney. He's won awards (including Best Newcomer - 2014 NZ Comedy Fest) , he's been nominated for even more (two Billy T Awards in 2015 & 2016). He's performed in NYC, LA, Melbourne and all over New Zealand. But what exactly is Tim Batt? He is a collection of atoms assembled just right to do things like start a global smash hit podcast with his mate called The Worst Idea of All Time which has been downloaded over 5 million times.
BUT WHAT'S HIS STAND UP LIKE? A fair question. Some reviewers have called him "one of the brightest young comedians the Southern Hemisphere's seen in yonks" and "Incredibly refreshing, honest and relatable – a must-see at this year's comedy gala" and one said "Batt's reactive opinions are on par with George Carlin and Bill Hicks, but the aggression of these late comics is replaced with a youthful and almost optimistic exuberance".
In this brand new hour of stand up Tim will be using his trademark wits and frail skinny body to entertain you with observations about the state of the world and state of his life. There's a really great bit about Jehovah's Witnesses, that much I promise you.
"Great material delivered with panache… He's clever and he's got something to say" Stuff.co.nz
"Batt is extremely quick and approaches things both laterally and literally. The combination of quite high concept material with crude cutaways and a general disregard for structure make for an enjoyable and surprising show" Scoop.co.nz
"The bottom line is Tim's funny… and by my gauge, one of the brightest young comedians the Southern Hemisphere's seen in yonks" WhatsGood
"For fans of smart, enjoyable political comedy this comes highly recommended" Theatreview
