Minchin and his munchkin delight
TIM Minchin delighted VIPs at a special event launching Matilda the Musical to Perth at the Crown Metropol Inifinity Suite on Thursday.
Minchin, who earlier that day treated his daughter Violet to birthday celebrations, said November 24 was always a busy day for the family.
“Violet is 10 today and I’ve been away for quite a few of her birthdays,” he said.
“So when I told her I’d booked another tour, Violet’s like ‘Seriously?’ so I said ‘Let’s go together’. It’s a bit weird for her because she’s away from her mum and her brother. She’s a beautiful girl and an interesting little monkey. I’m so glad we did it and don’t think we’ll ever forget this.”
Minchin said the pair toured five cities in two weeks and enjoyed her birthday with breakfast at the beach with her four grandparents, cake and cousin.
