Tim Minchin on Jonathan Ross Friday!

By Phil Plait | October 30, 2009 10:30 am

For U.S. folks who get BBC America, the fantastic comedian, skeptic, and musician Tim Minchin will be on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross show tonight!

Tim is brilliant; his performance at TAM London brought the house down. Jonathan Ross is something of a skeptic himself; he and his family attended TAML as well, and I found them to be funny, intelligent, and totally charming.

I can’t wait to see Tim on the show! I know it’s on YouTube already, but I’d rather wait and see the whole show [Edited to add: the video has been removed]. We’ve been watching it here at Chez BA and it’s really funny.

By the way, both Tim and Jonathan are on Twitter.

    I need to set up my DVR for the Jonathan Ross show, thanks for reminding me (all the things that get misses when setting up a new Chez).

  3. I saw part of this last week on BBC. It was pretty good — so yes, watch it.

    His Storm beat poem is awesome. Watch it wherever you find it.

    I saw Tim Sunday in London (after seeing him at TAM) and he was brilliant. A great musician, absolutely hilarious with a smart, serious underpinning that sets my mind spinning.

    At for those in the UK, you can see this on BBC’s iPlayer.

    and the week after (episode 9) he has Dara O’Briain.

    I don’t usually watch this, as my baby daughter (or womanchild, as Minchin would have it!) means I generally can’t stay awake past 9:00. I enjoyed both these episodes, though.

    Any word when the animation of Storm will be released?
