Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Tim Knight The Time Knife

Tim Knight The Time Knife

The Time Knife looks at our tendency to get stuck in the past or fixated on the future – but funny. This show features heartfelt storytelling combined with offbeat stand-up that will take you by surprise. 

In 2023 Tim built the world's first fully-operational Time Machine but bravely destroyed it. Come along to find out why. Featuring jokes, stories and poems about looking back, looking forward and trying to stay present.

Currently, Tim is an actor, improvisor and stand-up comedian. He has a background as a French and EAL teacher but currently works as a photographer. He was raised in the United Kingdom as the third child of evangelical Christian Missionaries.

He has been performing improv comedy since 2017 and stand-up comedy since 2018. He has performed in several comedy shows at past Melbourne International Comedy Festivals and at the Adelaide Fringe. In 2021, he was a RAW Comedy State Finalist. In 2022 he performed his debut show Wild X (Wild Times) at Melbourne Fringe and then again at MICF in 2023.
