TIM ROSS - Comedian, Entertainer, Creative
Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross is one of the Australian entertainment industry’s true multi-talented performers.
Tim’s partnership with Merrick Watts, which began with a one-off comedy gig in 1996, remains one of the most successful and well known comedy duo’s in the country. Their on-air partnership spanned nine years and saw them turn radio success into television ventures – Planet Merrick and Rosso (Comedy Channel), Merrick and Rosso Unplanned (Nine Network), The B Team (Network Ten) and The Merrick & Rosso Show (Comedy Channel).
It was in 2013 that Tim unleashed his talents into new, uncharted territory with his unique stand-up show Man about the House. The show, mixing storytelling, stand-up comedy, design, history and music saw Tim perform to sell-out audiences in iconic, modernist houses across Australia, New Zealand and the United States, including Sydney’s Harry Seidler Penthouse during the 2015 Spectrum Festival. Man about the House has also had seasons in Venice in the Australian Pavilion for the Architecture Biennale and for the London Architecture Festival.
In 2016, Tim shared his enthusiasm for design and architecture with audiences in the two-part series Streets of Your Town (ABC). Written and hosted by Tim, the show took viewers on a journey into Australian suburbs and examined building history and changes in Australia.
