Hailing from Memphis Tennessee, Tim Renkow has a unique viewpoint as an American immigrant living in the UK. He is brutally honest, shockingly sharp and encompasses a cuttingly dark yet somehow cheerful sense of humour, no subject is off limits for Tim.
On arrival in the UK, Tim quickly made a name for himself storming the festivals and winning Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Award, the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off Award and a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Chortle Awards. He has also been awarded severe Cerebral Palsy, by God.
Like a paraplegic on a hill with no breaks, Tim did not slow down, but went on to have two critically acclaimed Edinburgh shows, starred on NBC's Before the Night After, BBC's Fresh from the Fringe and has written for ITV's Off Their Rockers.
In an exciting and brave move from the BBC, Tim will be gracing our screens this summer as the writer and star of the very brilliant sitcom A Brief History of Tim for BBC3 Comedy. HIS 2016 Edinburgh show ‘King of the Tramps’!! Was awarded 5 stars and critical acclaim.
Expect great things from this shoeless tornado of comedy.
