PREMIERSHIPS, captaincy, and years inside the inner sanctum at Alberton, everyone knows the story of Tim Ginever.

Or do they?

Football fans will at last be taken inside the world of South Australian football in the 1980s and 1990s as Tim Ginever launches into the world of comedy.

Off Air sees Ginever jump into the world of comedy as he shares anecdotes and stories from throughout his life, with plenty of yarns from his playing and coaching days.

“A mate of mine talked me into it, and I thought, ‘Why not?’” Ginever says.

“There will be a lot of storytelling – growing up in a migrant family of 10 kids, being a Port supporter as a kid, joining the club and playing in premierships, parenting in the new millennium, coaching, radio, and everything in between.

“I’m starting to go grey, so I thought I’d start telling the anecdotes early!”

Will there be some humour about life in the Port playing group?

“Some past players might get a mention, I think it will mainly be Mr. T Ginever who’s the butt of the jokes though!”

"The night is all about escaping the day-to-day with some good yarns and making the audience feel good."

Ginever will perform 15 shows at The Speakeasy at Gluttony during the Fringe – that’s located in Rymill Park – from Friday 12 February to Sunday 28 February.

Tickets start from $32.90 and can be purchased here.
