VINE’S COM­EDY IDOLS

TV Times - - Interview -

Tim is in­spir­ing a new gen­er­a­tion of comics, but who were the per­form­ers he looked up to? ‘There are two groups,’ says Tim. ‘The ones I watched grow­ing up – like More­cambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper and Les Daw­son – and the comics who were around me when I first did stand-up. I was do­ing five-minute open spots, while they did full 20-minute rou­tines, so I was like a schoolkid ad­mir­ing the sixth for­m­ers. My list would in­clude Ed­die

Iz­zard, Alan Davies, Bill Bai­ley and Harry Hill.’
