Tim Bisley « Back

Tim is still a skateboarding, baggy trousered, sci-fi loving, comic reading graphic artist but since we last saw him, he seems to have mellowed slightly. No longer driven by the bitterness of being dumped, Tim is enjoying being a single male. Happily ensconced in his new surroundings, he is heartily living a life denied him by the shackles of a comfortable loving environment. He has since happily turned the corner of being 27 and in no way senses the distant, sickening rumble of 30 galloping towards him on a life path that so far seems to have accrued very little in the way of personal achievement. He's fine with it. Honestly.

Would Say: "Here's my cartoon interpretation of Kirk and Spock's role on Star Trek."
Wouldn't Say: "You Starting..?"
Club Name: Timothy B

A Poem by Tim
I have held you in my arms a thousand times,
closed my eyes and known we would always be together.
I have smiled at you through all your many lies,
unknowing and unthinking, that eternity would be never.

As distance dulls the memory, and bitter history grows hazy,
I realise my one true love, is in fact a girl called...

Simon Pegg  

Simon Pegg was hand-reared in Gloucester. He graduated from Bristol University in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre, film and television, but decided to pursue a career in stand-up comedy, something that had interested him since birth.

After making a name for himself on the local circuit, he moved to London in 1993, where he established himself as a well known comic, playing all the major venues in the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand with his acclaimed solo show. He made appearances on The Stand Up Show and Saturday Night Live, before returning to acting in a TV sketch show, Six Pairs of Pants, where he met friend and future writing partner Jessica Stevenson. More acting roles followed. In 1996 he landed the role of Jools in the award-winning sitcom Faith in the Future, and a project for the Paramount Comedy Channel, Asylum, which again teamed him up with Jessica and marked the beginning of a collaboration that would eventually create Spaced.

In the past couple of years, Simon has worked with many of Britain's top comedy performers. With Steve Coogan on both the BAFTA award winning I'm Alan Partridge and his highly successful live show, The Man Who Thinks He's It, which toured Britain in 1999. He worked with Chris Morris and Father Ted creators Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews on the BAFTA nominated, Montreux Rose and ITV Comedy award-winning sketch show, Big Train, which earned him a RTS award nomination for Best Comedy Performer. Simon also starred in Hippies for BBC2, as well as guesting on the first series of Charlie Higson's Randall and Hopkirk, Deceased, starring Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer.

Simon has been twice nominated for GQ's 'Comedian Of The Year' and 'Best Newcomer' at the ITV Comedy Awards. Spaced itself won a Creative Freedom award (Best Sitcom). As well as co-writing and performing in the second series of Spaced, Simon has recently appeared in Steven Spielberg's epic WW2 drama for HBO Band of Brothers, with David Schwimmer and Paul Maguigan's film Morality Play, alongside Willem Dafoe and Paul Bettany.

Simon also appeared more recently in Chris Morris's controversial Brass Eye special, playing a "paedophile" in the stocks in the studio, and in Michael Winterbottom's 24 Hour Party People.
He is currently developing a zombie spoof movie with Spaced director Edgar Wright, Shaun of the Dead.
Simon (along with Nick Frost) also recently stood in for Zoe Ball on her weekend show on XFM.

Simon on... Drumkits: "I do play the drums. I lived in a music shop when I was little and taught myself in the basement. I also got a miniature drum kit for Christmas when I was five, unlike Tim who got one for his fifth birthday. (See, we're not the same person.) "
Simon on... His Hair: "My hair was very bleached. I damaged it virtually beyond repair during series two. It was only just starting to recover in March 2002."
Favourite Alcohol: Vodka and Guinness (not together).
Favourite Cartoon: The Simpsons
