Tim Vine Keynote Speaker

  • Award-winning stand-up comedian
  • Former world record holder for the most jokes told in one hour (499)
  • Author, "The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book" (2010)


Tim Vine is the undisputed king of the one liners and puns. With up to ten jokes a minute, Tim’s gag-telling has seen him break the world record for the most jokes told in an hour with 499 (to count, each joke had to get a laugh from the audience).

Tim started his stand up career back in the mid-1990s and was a runner up at the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year in 1993. He first went to theEdinburgh Fringe Festival in 1995 and won the Best Newcomer award for his show The Tim Vine Fiasco. In 2010 and 2014, he also won the award for best joke; he was the runner up in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Tim was the co-star (and co-writer) of BBC1’s hit sit-com Not Going Out alongside fellow comedian Lee Mack. He and Lee also appeared together in The Sketch Show. As a stand-up, Tim has appeared on Live at the Apollo, the Royal Variety Show, and The Stand Up Show, and on shows including QI, Room 101, and Countdown.

In 2003, Tim contributed to the “Sit-Down Comedy” book. His first book, “The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book”, was released in 2010, and contains over 1,000 jokes and puns. In 2011, he released a second joke book entitled “The Not Quite Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book”, specifically for children.
