Tim Vine Career
Vine’s debasement mainly consists of a series of one-liners and puns for rapid-fire. He often participated at the Fringe Edinburgh Festival in 1995, where he received the Perrier newcomer awards with shows including The Tim Vine Shambles and The Tim VineFiasco. In 2006, he had a massive publicity hoarding with his name and image built, with a little subheading “…is not at the Edinburgh Festival of this year.” For the first couple of weeks of the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Vine appeared at Pleasance Courtyard to perform a show called Punslinger.
In tours such as Current Puns in 2006 and Punslinger in 2008, Vine has performed on a United Kingdom tour. In July 2008 he recorded a performance at London’s Bloomsbury Theater, which was published on 27 October 2008 as the new DVD So I Said To This Bloke. During February and March, his third tour was The Joke-a motive, and a DVD from the concert was published in November 2011.
Many of Vine’s gags were wrongly attributed to Tommy Cooper, many in the style of Cooper. Vine’s jokes are actually part of the West End Show about Tommy Cooper.
