I became aware of Tim Minchin this weekend, thanks to a spotlight on the musician-comedian in The New Yorker podcast. Presumably, there is an article about him in The New Yorker as well. As a Weird Al fan, I am entertained by his younger ginger British atheist counterpart.
“If I Didn’t Have You” is a great parody of a certain type of pop song.
“F*ck the Poor” is a harsh and funny take on materialism and guilt.
“Woody Allen Jesus” is an interesting choice for a Christmas song.
“White Wine in the Sun” is a more serious take on the Holidays, from an atheist who still likes Christmas.
“Storm” is a riff on homeopathic medicine in the style of a beat poem. And he made an animated video about it.
This will tide me over a little bit until South Park comes back.
