Tim Fitzhigham

Tim Fitzhigham's far-fetched exploits are recounted in hilarious manner and are ideally suited for any corporate event to leave the audience in stitches. Tim’s interactive showmanship and farcical shenanigans will delight an after dinner audience. A hit for corporate events Tim’s almost unbelievable stories are guaranteed to amuse one and all. 

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.

Thank you for the amazing job you did on Wednesday Tim, it was a great event and a real success.
British Alpine Ski Event

Tim broke into the 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 exploits in taking on bets from comedian Alex Horne have entertained listeners to his BBC Radio  show 'The Gambler'

Tim enchants and entertains audiences with his tales, told in an unassuming, yet hilarious manner, making him the ideal choice as comedian or after dinner speaker for any event large or small.
