He's a punky, eyeliner-wearing redhead who sings about racists and elitists. Breaking taboos is pretty much Tim Minchin's specialty. The comedian-singer-songwriter is already big in his native Australia and in the UK — his first US concert DVD, Ready for This, is just out.
Minchin admits to Kurt Andersen he was a little nervous about performing in the American Bible Belt. He even got hate e-mail from a local business that was supposed to rent him a piano: the proprietor wrote that he "'didn't think demons were welcome in Texas.' And I was like, fantastic, I can get the Satanists as well."
