Published: 5th December 2019.   Length: 76 mins.

Star of his own sitcom Jerk and a gleefully discomforting stand-up, Tim Renkow makes his point with devastating wit. We talk about how people's exploitation of Tim's physical vulnerability has shaped his outlook and work, learn how his dispassion towards his audience's reaction makes him a stronger comic, and find out why he would rather be alone in a wood with a shotgun.
