What does Tim get up to with all his "spare time"...?
In addition to his award-winning performances on stage and television, Tim Ellis also has a number of pastimes he enjoys mini-golf, jumping-stilts, roller-blades, ten-pin bowling and any other hyphenated minor-sport. He is also fanatical about:
Tim shares his inner suburban warehouse with two beautiful Rainbow Lorikeets named Sparks and Bandit. Both are unable to live in the wild, so Tim aims to give them the best quality of life and spends as much time with them as possible. When he has to travel, they enjoy the pampering of their personal avian vet at hotel Bird Boarding.
While researching his show 'Poker in the Face', Tim became addicted to the game of Texas Hold'em. Now he regularly plays in tournaments throughout Melbourne as he tries, unsuccessfully, to eliminate the "luck factor" from the game.
Since the early 1980's Tim has been a fan of the World Wrestling Federation (now 'Entertainment'). He appreciates the athleticism, but it's their ability to tell the same story over and over in the different ways 52 weeks a year and still pull massive crowds that truly fascinates him. He even wrote an editorial for MAGIC Magazine spelling out what magicians could learn from studying the wrestling. Tim also has a treasured possession given to him by the brother of WWE Referee Charles Robinson. Scott Robinson, also a magician, presented Tim with a Smackdown T-Shirt signed by over 30 of the top Superstars including The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero.
After being diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome Tim created the show 'Aspycadabra' telling the story of his life and how Asperger's has influenced it both positively and negatively. James Marshall, of Swinburne University Design, invited Tim to join the Aspergion project where Tim became a mentor for students creating an online environment to help educate and demystify the image of Asperger's. Tim has also performed and spoken at Asperger's awareness events all over the country.
Unusual sights and signs
Tim has long been a fan of the 'Engrish' website and now collects his own bizarre and unusual signs. Some say it's his Asperger's that helps him notice the oddities that most people would overlook.
