Very observant and uses little profanity so that's a good sign.
Absolutely awful. Comedy by numbers.
A veteran comic and compere, Tim Clark relaxes the audience with an easygoing stage presence and smart, if admittedly standard material. He can be a little too relaxed sometimes, and his act could do with more spark and punch. Having said that, his compering work is very effective, warming up the audience brilliantly at the start and rounding things off briskly when the show is over. Tim is also very good as a straight actor, bringing a comic touch to the thought-provoking What I Heard About Iraq, which he did in conjunction with his one-man show in Edinburgh last year. Good work.
Saw Tim compere at the Comedy Store on Sat 7th Oct. A steady performance, very good in places otherwise did enough to keep the evening ticking along.
Saw TC last night at Sohoho. He was the last act on and I wish I hadn't hung around. He couldn't be bothered and spent his entire act going on about being a divorced scouser. I don't think I laughed once. He thoroughly deserved the 'boos' which welcomed the completion of his pitiful act.
Over the past two years I have seen Tim, as compere, at the Comedy Store three times. At first he was funny. The second time it was obvious that his set is highly formulated and he actually doesn't write any new material, so by the third time he was quite boring. This is a shame, as he has the potential to be very funny. So c'mon Tim - get off your backside and entertain us with some NEW material. You know you want to!
Quite a creepy on-stage presence. A fantastic compere, Tim can also shut up hecklers with ease with some cracking one-liners.
Tim Clark simply cannot be bothered. He walks on and starts to rip the front row to bits: 'haircut' jokes aimed at a man with a fairly normal haircut, the 'that shirt must be a great contraceptive' gag at someone in a none-too exceptional shirt. He's got a long string of insults worked out, and the fact they don't actually fit his audience doesn't bother him. When he's compering at the Comedy Club it goes off alright; everyone's drunk enough to buy the snide stuff and nobody can see who he's picking on anyway. But when you stop to consider his routine he's really just a lazy, spiteful, unpleasant little man. He should do some comedy sometime.
