Tim Nutt pushes comedy to explosive new levels and dimensions. He expertly explores the hilarity in everyday life. You’ll delight to his bizarre concepts and twisted viewpoints, all delivered with extra-planetary talent. Tim is rough and tumble and manic and combines one-liners and crafty storytelling with a smooth familiarity.. A favorite on stages from coast to coast, this 26 year comedy Veteran has brought his unique style to Radio and Television and he is quite proud of his “Comedy Now” special for CTV and the Comedy Network. “With a name like Nutt, it’s hard to imagine a career outside comedy. This longhair’s brain is trained on everyday observations filtered through a layer of laconic spite. Nutt plays against his looks. At 6-foot-2, with shoulder length hair and a beard, Nutt is every inch the rocker. Crowds expect him to tell gags about biker babes and blowing joints but he is much too intelligent and sophisticated. He’s a one-man-war on stupid people, playing on audiences’ preconceptions.” – Andrew Clark, The Toronto Star .
