Tim Marriott is perhaps best known for seven series of BBC TV's leisure centre sit-com The Brittas Empire, appearing in every episode as deputy manager, Gavin. Other TV credits include British Airman ‘Tigger Thompson’ in Allo Allo, Doctors, The Bill, An Actor's Life for Me, The Main Event, Luv and film credits include the forthcoming features; The Real Thing, Love Type D and Revelation. He returned to the stage in 2018 after a seventeen year 'career break' in education as Director of Drama at Eastbourne College.
Tim recently completed a long tour of Australia going into Sydney supporting the Invictus Games with his award winning mental health themed solo show, Shell Shock, which was also performed at Edinburgh and Adelaide Festivals, where it won the Sunday Mail award, Best Male Solo Show and also won a Fringe Encore Award to be performed in New York. Tim also wrote and produced another sell-out award winning show on a Holocaust theme, Mengele. EdFringe and Adelaide 19 also saw the first performance of a new work, All Change, with another new drama, Judas. He is currently in rehearsal with a Shakespearian themed comedy, Waiting for Hamlet, and a Holmes-ian solo show, Watson: The Final Problem, both available as audio recordings here.
Besides producing and appearing in new theatre work around the world, Tim is also an experienced educator, voice over artist, public speaker and event host. He delivers workshops on devising theatre and framing stories as well as key note talks following Shell Shock performances, offering strategies for coping with anxiety, stress and trauma in partnership with Anxiety UK practitioner Annabel Fen Marriott. In August 2020 he produced and presented an online poetry and spoken word event for Army@TheFringe and led workshops on how creative writing can aid recovery and promote wellbeing.
