Timmy is…memorable. His name. His comedic style. His look. Performing alone or sharing the stage…he stands out. Suited up. Nursing a glass of OJ. Shoeless. The top question asked: “What’s with the OJ…and the suit…oh…and the socks?”
IT'S AN HOMAGE
“Touring used to take a serious toll on my body, so I’d often drink OJ & Gingerale to settle my stomach. It was so ever-present in my life that I named it…after myself. The T-Boy. When Up Standing Comedy was launched, as a nod to some of the classic comedians of the past, I began drinking the T-Boy on stage from a glass as a silent homage to Dean Martin.
Although aesthetically pleasing…it was not practical because I often found myself holding in burps for the final 20 minutes of shows. Eventually, the Gingerale was removed…but the OJ had to stay. I mean, a glass of OJ is like my trusty side-kick. Lewis & Martin. Timmy & OJ. It wouldn’t be the same without it…”
IT'S SIMPLY CLASSIC
“I grew up watching the classics with my dad. There’s something about comedy in B&W that’s pretty striking. Jack Benny was one of my favourites…but Bob Newhart is my “idol”. I remember watching a sketch with Newhart & Dean Martin crawling around in suit & tie. It was hilarious...and influential.
With the launch of Up Standing Comedy, I adopted the “classy” look of my comedic heroes. Dress pants. White shirt. Fedora. The hat never never felt right and was soon replaced by a jacket. However, whenever it was time “suit up”, I’d remain tie-less with an open collar to maintain a sense of “looseness”. After a decade, in an attempt to freshen the brand: Hello, vest & tie! I loved the new look…but…”
IT'S SO FREEING
“As a child, despite exponentially increasing my mother’s laundry time, I went everywhere in socked feet. And, as an adult, I have only owned one kind of socks: Grey Kodiak work woolies with the red stripe. I wear them in the summer…at weddings…and on stage.
When I “freshened up” my look with the tie & vest, I couldn’t shake the sense the vibe was just…off. So, one night before a show, while lacing up my new dress shoes, I shared an idea with my friend & fellow comedian Matt Falk. Moments later, I took the stage in socked feet...and my very new dress shoes (purchased just hours before) have never been worn since. If you wear size 11…call me. I feel so free!”
