Tim Vine is Plastic Elvis
Swan Theatre, High Wycombe
This is it, people. The moment has arrived.
Following a one-off, sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019, Tim Vine is bringing Plastic Elvis to the Thames Valley.
Backed by an amazing five-piece, The High Noon Band, Plastic Elvis will shake, smoulder, and try to control his hair. In the end, he’ll break your heart as he belts out some of the King’s greatest hits.
With special guests John Archer as Big Buddy Holly, and songwriting legend David Martin (who wrote four songs for the real Elvis).
Tim says: “This isn’t a stand up show, but a concert dedicated to my favourite performer. When I was eleven years old, I would stand in front of my bedroom mirror and mime to the whole of 1972’s Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden album. This is a tribute act that is forty years in the making. Well, the waiting is over. It’s time to go public.”
Warning: this show may contain moves that even Plastic Elvis himself isn’t expecting.
“His charisma stunned me” – Plastic Elvis fan
“From the opening fanfare to the emotional finale I was hooked” – The other fan.
The performer has won Best Joke at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, twice. Recently, he has been seen on BBC1 in Tim Vine
Travels Through Time, on ITV hosting the quiz Football Genius, and on Dave in Taskmaster. He hosts the Tim Vine Chat Show on BBC Radio 4, interviewing members of the audience and continuing to prove that not everyone has a story.
There will be displays at Windsor Racecourse and Legoland, local fireworks in Burnham and Twyford and smaller displays at schools in the Royal Borough.
