Tim Vine is the undisputed king of the one liners and before the welcoming applause has died down he'll have rattled off five or more jokes. The master of puns. He rattles off a barrage of one-liners so fast that you won't know what hit you. So quick is he that he once held the world record for the most jokes told in one hour with 499.
He first went to the Edinburgh Festival in 1995 and won the Best Newcomer award for his show The Tim Vine Fiasco and has been a regular at the festival, even using puns to name his shows such as Current Puns, The Punslinger and The Joke-Amotive.
Along with numerous appearances on stage, Tim has also played a part in The Sketch Show and the hilarious Not Going Out, along side Lee Mack.
