Each week Tim Key explores a different theme, with poems ranging in length and style - from the short and frivolous to the longer-form epics. But every poem, short or long, represents a vivid journey through an absurd, yet strangely compelling, imagination.

Tim is accompanied by his 'good-looking musical chimp' Tom Basden. The pair's mutual contempt often bubbles over into open hostility and occasional violence. But they are best friends really.
