Growing up in a family of six, it was always obvious to Tim that he was the strange one.
After falling from a flight of stairs and hitting his head on some bricks as a child, he became fascinated with the idea of acting, doing voices and pretending to be someone you’re not for a living.
He was introduced to acting by his father who had been in many plays, and intuitively understood comedy and doing voices from an early age.
The first time he found himself on a stage was in school at age six in a production of “The Three Little Pigs”, holding a large piece of cardboard with a large hole representing one wall of the ill-fated “house of sticks”.
Tim thought to himself that if he let the wall fall towards him and he ducked down the window would go over him like a Charlie Chaplin film. So he let it go …and it did.
Sitting and listening to the laughter, Tim decided that he would pursue that sound for the rest of his life.
After many years of acting training, doing stand-up comedy and impressions. Tim found himself on the Tonight Show back in 2011. He has been keeping his dream alive ever since.
Timothy Banfield is passionate about the art on entertaining, and it shows in his work.
