Oxford Comedy Festival 2019 presents Tim Renkow Tries to Punch Down
31 July 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
About Tim Renkow Tries to Punch Down
It’s the final evening of the Oxford Festival Fringe Preview Comedy Festival and, boy, do we have a treat for you! Tim Renkow star of Jerk (BBC) is our headliner with his new show Tim Renkow Tries to Punch Down. Tim will be supported by three hilarious members of the Oxford comedy community and the creative forces behind QED Comedy Lab: Anna Dominey, Matthew Chadourne and more. It’s going to be an amazing night!
Tim Renkow is a crippled, redneck, Mexican Jew. It’s hard for him to find a group he is not allowed to make fun of, which is insulting. In a world increasingly running on the fumes of hate and discrimination, Renkow is taking on all comers in this searingly honest show. Checking his own privilege at the door, this straight-talking stand-up is about the big conversations. Racism, religious persecution, and babies: nothing is off the table in this bitingly frank hour. Join Tim as he tries to find a group that is off-limits and prove that he’s not the bottom of the social ladder.
This Tim Renkow Tries to Punch Down show is part of the Oxford Festival Fringe Preview Comedy Festival, a month-long comedy festival taking place all over Oxford during July, and featuring the best and boldest comedic voices in the UK.
