From his first leading role in 1978 in the comedy, Happy Birthday, Tim has remained at the very top of the acting world for over 30 years with numerous awards and unique achievements that set him apart from the rest. He has starred in such diverse comedies as “Two Into One” (Fleur du Cap Award Best Actor), “Doubles” (Vita Comedy Award for Best Actor), “Heel Against the Head” (Vita Award Best Director) and of course, the play he is most remembered for, “Defending the Caveman” (Vita Award for Best Comedy Actor), which re-wrote theatre history by breaking all SA show records. Tim decided to hang up his caveman skins after 9 ½ yrs and 1544 sold out performances. Tim has also starred in numerous musicals, three of his favourites being, “Snoopy!!!”, “Tom Foolery” and “Singin’ in the Rain”. As a writer, he has penned some memorable plays like “Grin & Bare It”, “Breakfast with Dad”,and “The Insatiables”, which won the Best Play of the Year, SA Comedy Awards.

He is a prolific voice-over artist and, together with his wife, Cathy, has a highly successful production company which has produced 18 theatre and over 160 corporate productions and videos. Never one to sit on his laurels, Tim has written a new play and a book this past year. The play, “Designer Genes XXL – The Return of the Caveman”, is a tongue in cheek look at relationships, helping to unravel the twists and turns of the double helix in men’s complex ‘dance’ with women. The book, classically titled “Fitness For Old Farts” and published by Random Struik, has rocketed to No 10 on the best sellers list in SA within the first month of hitting the bookshelves. It is a very funny book about a serious subject close to Tim’s heart, fitness and health. Tim is now actively doing motivational speaking engagements countrywide on the subject of fitness for old farts, and inspiring the over 50’s to regain fitness, flexibility and fun by showing them how to roll back the years and find new shape and vitality.
