Tim Fountain

I first came across Tim as an audience member at his show Sex Addict at the Royal Court in 2004. Part of the show was him hooking up with strangers online on Gaydar (I think it was Gaydar) and he marched us all down the Kings Rd to find this hook up- but we couldn’t locate them- maybe they got wind that they were to meet 100 strangers rather than just Tim. It was really a very novel idea, long before Grinder & Tinder etc and the idea of online hook-ups being so easy.
I love his work it’s always cheeky and subversive and vey queer. He had his first international success with ‘Resident Alien’ abut Quentin Crisp, starring Bette Bourne (see Bette Bourne post)

This picture was taken at his friends house near Crouch End in 2015.
