Tim Minchin

JoAnn took me to see this Australian, piano-playing comedian and I had a great time. His playing is wonderful and songs quite hilarious. Minchin looks like a lion, if the lion was a man, and the man was homeless, and, apparently, had some very enthusiastic fans in the audience. Newsflash to the giant-toothed hyena: nothing is so funny as to justify your screaming laughter. You acted like an incompetent plant and actually made people uncomfortable and concerned about your mental health. But back to the show. I enjoyed Minchin and might try to find some CDs of his work, but only if it is just his songs. His interludes left me cold. To sum up: Piano playing comedy = awesome. Spoken word Aussie humor = weak.
