Tim Handsome: Nearly Naked

Tim Handsome: Nearly Naked


19 - 23 Sep | 50 minutes Cabaret Club - Reagh Bar

From A.I. to Instagram, the rent crisis to dating in your 40’s, Tim Handsome offers a zaddy's perspective with the help of his piano, his cape, and his personal trainer.

Fresh off the plane from Bathurst, Tim Handsome, composer of the hit musical "Schapelle Schapelle", is back in a brand new solo cabaret show: Nearly Naked.

Old enough to remember life before social media but young enough to be able to use it properly, Tim Handsome is a proud Gen X'er, a proud gay man, and a proud weirdo who's been playing piano in his underpants since Bob Hawke was boozing it up in The Lodge.

In Nearly Naked, Tim strips back, bearing his physique and his soul, singing original songs inspired by the zeitgeist and his therapy sessions. A tune about unhelpful mental health advice? You got it. A ditty about dating as a daddy? Don't mind if I do! A cheerful sing-song about Silicon Valley doing its darnedest to turn "The Terminator" into reality? Why the hell not? And of course a song about hot guys, because perving on spunks is a time-honoured cornerstone of being a big ol' gaybo.

Anyway, if you're going to see one show this fringe, see this one, because otherwise I lose a bet.
