A comedy show about happiness, parenthood, and the importance of manufacturers of basic grocery staples making realistic and defensible claims in their marketing materials. (Mainly the first two).
Happiness is relative. To be more specific, happiness is relative to Tim Müller.
Scientist by day, comedian by night, quite good at making pancakes the following morning, Tim points the microscope at everything from Peppa Pig to the Robopocalyse in search of the hilarious truth. There won't be any pancakes. Not sure why I even mentioned that.
After accepting a challenge from a bag of generic-brand flour, Tim embarks on an epic journey to achieve perfect happiness, or be miserable trying. This is a show about how his life is better than yours. Objectively and beyond reasonable doubt. Most of the time.
This is Tim's second solo comedy show, following on from LAUGH NOW, GOOGLE LATER (NZICF 2017). He’s a writer, performer, founder of the fresh but thriving Queenstown comedy scene, a well-regarded contaminated land specialist, occasional science columnist on the Spinoff, and his parents were on Country Calendar once. Some of these things are more relevant to how good this show will be than others. You can probably figure it out.
