Tim Ross

Best known for his work on TV and radio, comedian Tim Ross has a long-standing passion for architecture and design. Over the last four years, he has performed his successful live show ‘Man About the House’ exclusively in architecturally-significant buildings and homes. He has spoken at ‘The 50’s and 60’s House’ Symposium (Museum of Sydney), Home Series talks (Government House), Sydney Design Week, and he is an ambassador for Sydney Open. In 2012 Tim became a member of the Creative Services Advisory Committee for Sydney Living Museums and has also written on architecture for various publications. His two part series on Australian Architecture, Streets of Your Town premiered on ABC TV in November 2016 to rave reviews.


"Good architecture should knock you around and shake you up like a great film or a brilliant book. It should haunt you (in a nice way) for as long as your mind will let you.”
