If you ever take a look at Tim Minchin‘s career, the depth and breadth of how the Aussie musical comedian has flourished is astounding. Whether it be his intensely satirical and biting songs to his work on such musicals as Matilda to acting, Minchin seemingly does it all (and it’s all worth watching/listening to).
His latest work comes in the form of a TV series that he’s starring in with Milly Alcock called Upright. It follows Minchin and Alcock as an unlikely pair trying to drive a piano across the deserts of Australia. It’s a role that’s perfect for Minchin. Here’s a bit of a teaser.
Upright is having its North American premiere (before it airs on Sundance Now) via the ATX TV Festival. The first two episodes will be premiering on the ATX TV Festival’s YouTube Channel on Tues. July 21st at 5PM PT/8PM ET/7PM CT. Minchin and Milly Alcock will be chatting on social media as those two episodes arrive.
Along with that, Judd Apatow will be in conversation with Minchin afterwards and that full Q&A will be available for everyone later this week, Wed. July 22nd at 8AM PT/11AM ET/10AM CT.
