Due to popular demand,  An Unfunny* Evening with Tim Minchin and his Piano has added a second performance at New York City's Town Hall on Monday August 26 at 7 PM, in addition to the previously announced one on August 25. Tickets for the newly added date go on sale today at 2pm local time.

Tickets for all other shows are available now at TimMinchin.com.

The Olivier Award-winning, Grammy and Tony Award-nominated poly-talent is returning to North America this summer with An Unfunny* Evening with Tim Minchin and his Piano, a 13-city tour beginning on August 3 in Vancouver produced by Live Nation.

Acclaimed for his brilliant music composition, lyrics, keyboard skills, vocal prowess, and laser sharp wit, Tim has sold out some of the most prestigious venues around the globe including London's O2 Arena and The Royal Albert Hall; and his native Sydney Opera House. Typically barefoot in performance, he plans to wear shoes this time.  Tim Minchin said this about the tour, “It has been over a decade since I played solo in the States, and I'm SO fkn excited to be back. Nothing compares to US audiences.”

An Unfunny* Evening with Tim Minchin and his Piano comes with the strongly worded disclaimer that 'this is not a comedy gig,' although there are no guarantees about the absence of amusement. Minchin will perform songs drawn from his 2020 studio album, Apart Together, his musicals, Matilda and Groundhog Day, his TV and film writing, and his early song-writing days around the turn of the century.
