Tim is a talented stand-up comedian, writer and actor.

He moved to London from the United States at the age of 22 to study creative writing and promptly started performing stand-up comedy, through which he found a platform to display his thoughts on the world. His critically-acclaimed one man shows, AT LEAST HELL HAS RAMPS and KIM JONG-UN, MUHAMMAD, JESUS AND OTHER POWER HUNGRY MANIACS, earned him the Leicester Square Best Newcomer Award, The Amused Moose Comedy Award and a Chortle Best Newcomer nomination.

In 2015 Tim wrote and starred in BBC short film A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIM. It was shown on BBC One and BBC Three in 2016 and developed with Roughcut as a full series under the new name of JERK, which was released on BBC Three in Spring 2019. Tim is also known for his role in Viceland hit comedy series BOBBY AND HARRIET GET MARRIED which was re-released on Comedy Central UK in Autumn 2018. 

Following a successful run at Edinburgh Fringe 2018, Tim's latest live show TIM RENKOW TRIES TO PUNCH DOWN transferred to the Soho Theatre for a limited run in April 2019.
