‘Tim Vine Live: Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim To You’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to stand-up comedy I tend to like the comedians that tell a story and build up to a joke. There are some though that prefer the quick-fire one-liners style like Tim Vine… What I find with Tim Vine though is that he has a style that is inoffensive and easy to handle. […]
