Important update regarding Tim Key: Megadate

All articles

We regret to inform ticket holders that unfortunately Tim Key is cancelling his show, Tim Key: Megadate tomorrow at the HighTide Festival due to medical reasons.

Please see below a message from Tim, who wanted to send a personal apology:

"I’m really sorry, I’ve had to pull out of this gig. I have a slight medical situation and doctors have ordered me to clear everything for a few days and they know best as a rule. I'm really sorry, I wanted to do it, but alas succumbed to professional advice. Tim."

We are very sorry to disappoint ticket holders.

We are, however, incredibly excited that Tim's co-star in TASKMASTER, Phil Wang, has agreed to perform his Edinburgh Fringe sell out hit show, KINABULU in the same slot on Thursday 20th September.


Phil Wang is a son of the British Empire. But in a world intent on building walls and bolstering borders, what is a Commonwealth man to do? Some blistering comedy gold – that’s what.
