Star of his own sitcom "Jerk" (BBC) 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.

Content warning: strong language and discussion of sexual abuse.

Members of the Insiders Club can enjoy 20 mins of extra content with Tim giving us his analysis of the four types of Edinburgh fringe shows, precisely why he doesn't like award-winning shows, and what great idea he only tried saying on stage once...

All of that, plus all the extras from every show which has them, exclusively available to members of the Insiders Club. Join today at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders
