BIOGRAPHY

Tim FitzHigham is a Perrier nominated multi-award winning comedian, explorer, quadruple world record holder, historian, archaeologist, film maker and author. A regular on the corporate circuit, Tim can deliver after-dinner speeches, hold workshops, host award ceremonies and conferences, and he is also an experienced auctioneer (often the most difficult job of any successful evening but a vital one!). Among numerous TV credits as a comedian, he has presented several documentaries for BBC1, and Super Human Challenge for CBBC which followed him around the world as he met the humans who defy science. Tim has written and performed in two series of The Gambler for BBC Radio 4 based on his hugely successful 2011 Edinburgh Fringe show which centres on the ten greatest bets in history. Tim is currently touring the UK with his live version of The Gambler. In 2015, Tim was invited to speak in London at the renowned Moth series which has presented thousands of stories told live without notes worldwide. Tim is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He has also made many stage and film appearances including Wolfman with Sir Anthony Hopkins, Booked Out andHereafter both directed by Clint Eastwood. Tim has spoken at countless business and charity lunches including the World Economic Forum in Geneva, the Princes Trust Charity Lunch, and numerous receptions at the UK House of Lords, the London Livery Companies, and London’s Alderman. He has hosted conferences, diverse exhibitions, and festivals both in the UK and abroad including hosting the Earl’s Court Boat Show and the main stage at Camp Bestival with the Wurzles and Suzanne Vega. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and Freeman of the City of London, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Knighted by a foreign monarchy, Tim is a man with brilliantly bad ideas. He is the only man to row the English Channel in a bath, and has entertained audiences world-wide with his fascinating, hilarious, moving tales of dreamy impracticalness – breaking records and setting precedents in paper boats, running across deserts in suits of armour, climbing up the outside of the Doha Torch building in Qatar, balancing on chairs on the edge of the Grand Canyon, rolling cheeses, cheeseboards and wheelbarrows unfeasible distances, trying long distance Morris Dancing and taking on the world’s strongest woman in a bus pulling contest – Tim is a one off.
