Tim Vine brings Plastic Elvis Tribute to High Wycombe Fri 29th October      

This is it, people. The moment has arrived. Following a one-off, sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019, Tim Vine is bringing Plastic Elvis to your town (well nearby High Wycombe anyway) for his 2021-22 UK tour!

Backed by an amazing five-piece, The High Noon Band, Plastic Elvis will shake, smoulder, and try to control his hair. In the end, he’ll break your heart as he belts out some of the King’s greatest hits. With special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis). Tim says: “This isn’t a stand up show, but a concert dedicated to my favourite performer.

When I was eleven years old, I would stand in front of my bedroom mirror and mime to the whole of 1972’s Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden album. This is a tribute act that is forty years in the making. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time to go public.”

Warning: this show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isn’t expecting.

“His charisma stunned me”

Who is Tim Vine?

Tim Vine is a comedian who has performed numerous sell-out shows in the UK and beyond. His six stand-up DVDs include the latest tour Sunset Milk Idiot, which came out at Christmas 2018. His vast wealth of material has been preserved in books such as The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book and The Tim Vine Bumper Book of Silliness. He has also won Best Joke at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, twice. Recently, he has been seen on BBC1 in Tim Vine Travels Through Time, on ITV hosting the quiz Football Genius, and on Dave in Taskmaster. He hosts the Tim Vine Chat Show on BBC Radio 4, interviewing members of the audience and continuing to prove that not everyone has a story. His YouTube channel, Tim Vine Televisual (TVTV), regularly serves up nonsense.

Why is he not coming to Oxfordshire?

We wish we knew, but you can drive to High Wycombe in 40 minutes from Oxford and it’s about an hour on the train. So if you are a fan of Tim Vine, or Elvis for that matter, it’s not that far.
