Tim Vine

Fee Band

Tim is holder of the world record for the most jokes told (and laughed at) in an hour: 499. After Not Going Out he wrote a Bumper Book Of Silliness and has sold out theatres across the country with his relentless stream of one-liners and puns.


When you see Tim Vine perform you certainly get value for money - with up to ten gags a minute. The speed, precision and relentlessness of Tim’s gag-telling has seen him break the world record for the most jokes told in an hour with 499 (to count, each joke had to get a laugh from the audience too).

Noted for his well-crafted puns and one-liners, Tim has become a comedy institution. He has won the Perrier Best Newcomer Award and been shortlisted for the main award and for Time Out’s New Act of The Year. He is regularly listed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s annual shortlist of the funniest jokes at the festival, and has won the award with ‘I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again.’

Tim was the co-star (and co-writer) of BBC1’s hit sit-com Not Going Out alongside fellow comedian Lee Mack. He and Lee also appeared together in The Sketch Show. As a standup, Tim has appeared on Live at the Apollo, the Royal Variety Show, and The Stand Up Show, and on shows including QI, Room 101, and Countdown. He also launched Channel 5 with Julia Bradbury.

A huge live draw, Tim has numerous sell-out tours, DVDs a joke book and a ‘Bumper Book of Silliness’ to his name. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, Tim was also once in a band, The Flared Generation, with this older brother Jeremy.
