In this sell-out comedy show, award-winning comedian, adventurer and world record holder Tim FitzHigham: The Gambler discusses the ten worst bets in history, recreating a bizarre series of 18th and 19th century stunts.
Multi award-winning comedian, adventurer and world record holder FitzHigham has lots of bad ideas (he rowed the English Channel in a bathtub).
Now, inspired by centuries-old bets, recorded in the betting books of revered gentlemen’s clubs, Tim attempts feats such as pushing a wheelbarrow 25 miles in a bet with Richard Hammond, standing on one leg for 12 hours, and actually racing a racehorse over 100 yards.
The Gambler sold out at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011, Melbourne International Festival (Australia) in 2012, Adelaide Festival (Australia) in 2013 and the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in 2014.
Suitable for ages 14+.
