Is Tim Key the hardest working man in showbiz? As well as performing onstage in his brilliant new live show he has recently popped up onscreen in Detectorists, Zapped, Gap Year and loads more.

And now he pitches up in this one-off short film written by David Elms, entitled Regular, opposite Laura Marling.


News: West End Run For Tim Key's New Show Megadate

Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Tim Key has announced a further West End theatre run to follow shows at the Soho Theatre.

Key will be premiering his new eagerly-awaited (by me) show at the Soho Theatre from October 11- 14 and then from October 16 - 28.

The show is entitled Megadate and, according to the blurb, will be "blending poeticals, talking, standing, spotlights, cables, Kronenburg, foot-stamping and old school wistfulness."

Live Review: Knock2bag 10th Birthday with Sara Pascoe, Tim Key, Richard Gadd, John Kearns & Absolutely Loads More, Rich Mix

If there is a crisis on the live circuit as I've heard, nobody has told Knock2bag. Their various clubs around the capital have been doing the business for ten years and last night's show in their Shoreditch outpost was absolutely rammed. And I’m not just talking about the audience. With ten acts on the bill (maybe even more, I lost count) the dressing room was probably standing room only too.

TV Review: Gap Year, E4, Episode 2

As anyone who watched the spoiler-packed trailer at the end of last week's opening episode set in China will know already Sean (Ade Oyefeso) doesn't become the meat in a stir fry. Instead he just gets forced to sing karaoke against his will by the people who gave him a lift – though if it was me I'd rather end up in a wok, but that's just shy old me. For Sean, the biggest challenge is hooking up with his fellow travellers again via the bullet train. Which involves finding the right bullet train in the first place.  

TV Review: Gap Year, E4

I could pretty much watch anything that Tim Key is in, so I’m glad he is in Gap Year. I’m not sure if I’d have stuck with the opening episode without his moon-faced grin popping up soon after the start as irritating hanger-on Greg.
