The inimitable Australian polymath
Music virtuoso Tim Minchin is internationally renowned as a songwriter and composer, but he’s a man of many more talents – including being an award-winning actor, comedian and author.
Born in Northampton, he was raised in Perth, Australia. Minchin fell in love with theatre from a young age, later studying and receiving a degree from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts’ Edith Cowan University in 1998 – with that institution awarding him an honorary Doctorate of Performing Arts in recognition of his outstanding contributions in 2019.
Minchin’s credits have been numerous since graduating. He’s probably best known for creating the lyrics and music in the acclaimed Matilda The Musical, which has won a record seven Olivier Awards, and five Tony Awards – and it continues to run in the West End among many other cities worldwide.
In addition, Minchin did the score for the fantastically witty musical Groundhog Day, and he co-wrote and starred in the television series Upright about two misfits thrown together by chance in the middle of the Australian desert.
Minchin also has a long history of sold-tour live tours in Australia, the UK and across the globe that often showcase not only his comedic chops but his politically charged songwriting and his extraordinary piano playing skills.
Over the years he released numerous live albums including 2005’s Darkside, 2006’s So Rock, 2009’s Ready For This?, 2010’s Live At The O2, 2011’s Tim Minchin And The Heritage Orchestra and 2013’s So F***ing Rock.
Minchin’s debut studio album, Apart Together, recorded since he moved back to Sydney in 2018, came out in November 2020 and reached No.3 on the ARIA charts. Full of personal songs that tell stories and vary from pop-rock to intimate ballads, The Independent described it as “crisply observed and tenderly considered”. In advance of the album’s arrival, he played a one-off livestream concert showcasing all 11 tracks to a worldwide audience.
On 8 March 2021, Minchin announced his return to the UK stage in autumn with his critically acclaimed BACK – Encore Tour 2021. Billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, the setlist includes material from throughout his eclectic repertoire. BACK was first performed in the UK in 2019 and not only received rave reviews, but also saw Minchin pick up a Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert.
