After growing up in Perth, he attended the University of Western Australia (UWA) and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), before moving to Melbourne in 2002.

Biography

Minchin was born in Northampton, England, to Australian parents and raised in Perth, Western Australia. His father David Ellison Minchin and grandfather Max Ellison Minchin were surgeons in Perth, descendants of R. E. Minchin, founding director of Adelaide Zoo.

He was educated at the private Christ Church Grammar School and started learning piano at the age of eight, but gave it up after three years because he did not enjoy the discipline. He redeveloped an interest in the instrument after he started writing music with his brother Dan Minchin, a guitarist, but still describes himself as a "hack pianist... a 'more you practise, the better you get' kind of guy". Minchin graduated from UWA in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theatre, and from WAAPA in 1998 with a Diploma of Music (Commercial Music). In 2013, he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Letters from UWA.

He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Sarah. They have two children: a daughter, Violet, and a son, Caspar. Minchin often refers to his relationships in his songs and stand-up routines.

The show contains Minchin's trademark blend of comedic songs and poetry linked by short segments of observational comedy. It features many of the songs that have helped contribute to Minchin's popularity, including Peace Anthem For Palestine, which he himself has stated is his favourite song to perform. In the mammoth two hour performance, he tackles a series of issues including the theory of natural selection, babies and his worries about sex.
