'The master of comedy returns...

'The master of comedy returns to the stage to deliver stories from a life on the comedy warpath. From touring the world as one of the Doug Anthony All Stars, to his life as a network celebrity, Tim speaks (and sings) about his adventures with wicked wit and admirable honesty.

'Tim has battled Multiple Sclerosis for much of his adult life. Speaking about it publicly for the first time in 2010, he said, "It's not for wimps." and "You can laugh, or you can cry. Laughing takes fewer tissues."

'Tim warns audiences to "Be mildly nervous. Be very mildly nervous." Armed with a big walking stick, this master comedian is fierce, fearless and funny.'
