Tim Minchin’s show at The Moore Theater on June 12, is a must-see. While not a household name, there is a good chance that most are familiar with his exceptional body of work. Hailing from the land down under, Minchin has carved out a niche for himself with a unique brand of musical comedy. Drawing from diverse genres, Minchin’s songs are grounded in solid musicianship and throw some unexpected punches.
Not afraid of tackling tough conversations, Minchin’s song “Prejudice” is an outstanding example of his ability to use music to convey a powerful message by addressing a topic head-on. The June 12 show will be a rare opportunity for Seattle to witness Minchin’s impish and mischievous charm in the flesh.
Minchin has parlayed his musical and comedic talents into a plethora of delightful endeavors. He’s appeared on the TV series “Californication” as an insufferable rock star, created the score for the musical production of the Roald Dahl children’s book “Matilda,” and is currently working on the score for a musical production of “Groundhog Day.”
As with any creative endeavor with a well defined point of view, Minchin’s particular flavor of comedy is not the bland, mass produced variety intended to appeal to the lowest common denominator of palettes.
