Tim Fitzhigham Biography
In 1998 Tim Fitzhigham discovered his comedic talents when farming pigs in the West Indies, as he started telling stories to make people laugh in a rum shop up a goat track at the top of a hill. The following year he was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award and proceeded to appear in sell out comedy shows up and down the country.
Tim is a hilarious after dinner speaker for corporate events and gala dinners.
Paper and Bath Boating
Tim broke into mainstream as a world record holder breaking a 383 year-old World Record by paddling a paper boat 160 miles down the River Thames to raise money for Comic Relief.
In 2004 Tim attempted to become the first person to row the English Channel in a Bath. The attempt was called off in a force 6 to 7 storm just 4 miles from success. Tim was badly injured in the storm but the following year Tim became the first person to successfully row the English Channel in a Bath. He then rowed 200 miles, round Kent, and finished at Tower Bridge, having rowed the last 120 miles following a broken shoulder. This was commemorated by Thomas Crapper and Co. releasing a lavatory named after Tim to celebrate the bath journey. This is only the second commemorative lavatory in history (the other commemorated Queen Victoria's Jubilee).
Tim's latest quest was to become a Medieval Knight leading to him living as a recluse in a cave in a Spanish desert.
These tales of Tim’s far-fetched exploits are recounted in hilarious manner and are ideally suited for any corporate event.
