Funny: Tim Minchin
  • Take your pick; his own favourite is Peace Anthem For Palestine, whose one verse is:
    You don't eat pigs
    We don't eat pigs
    It seems it's been that way for ever
    So if you don't eat pigs
    And we don't eat pigs
    Why not not-eat-pigs together?
  • The ending of Canvas Bags.
    Tim: BLACKOUT! Fuck yeah!
  • The monotonous, completely deadpan way he sings the opening line of Some People Have It Worse Than I.
    Tim: Well, I wake up in the morning at 11:47 and I can't believe I have to face the horror of another fucking day.
  • From the Darkside Live album, just after the second chorus, the audience starts to clap along to the beat. Tim's about to launch into a solo, and he isn't pleased with the sudden participation.
    Tim: People always start clapping then, but I'm about to do a solo and I can't keep time. *beat* So shut the fuck up.
  • The entirety of Storm. This troper's favorite bit is when he rhymes "Carbon" with "Hard-on".
  • In Song for Wossy, he concludes a line with 'I wanna make sweet love to ya, sweet love to ya wife." The look on Ross's face was priceless.
  • Stone Her to Death!
  • Five Poofs and Two Pianos
