For U.S. folks who get BBC America, the fantastic comedian, skeptic, and musician Tim Minchin will be on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross show tonight!
Tim is brilliant; his performance at TAM London brought the house down. Jonathan Ross is something of a skeptic himself; he and his family attended TAML as well, and I found them to be funny, intelligent, and totally charming.
I can't wait to see Tim on the show!
I know it's on YouTube already, but I'd rather wait and see the whole show [Edited to add: the video has been removed]. We've been watching it here at Chez BA and it's really funny.
