In National Geographic Channel’s new series None of the Above, British host Tim Shaw takes his own irreverent brand of science and engineering to the streets of America as he looks to amaze and dumbfound in equal measure.
Tim’s unique brand of charm has made him one of Britain’s most popular broadcast personalities. His hosting duties have included a variety of radio shows on nearly every commercial station in the U.K., as well as the Channel 4 television series Extreme Male Beauty and Balls of Steel, Channel 5’s Fifth Gear, More 4’s The Last Word, and ITV1’s Pulling Power. He is also the current host of The Wrong Show, the largest content-based radio show in the U.K, and the LOL Show on Bauer’s Rock FM. Tim has received more than 14 global comedy and speech radio awards, including multiple New York Radio Awards and a Sony Award. He was also named “Presenter of the Year” by the British Radio Industry and “Speech Broadcaster of the Year” by EMAP.
In addition to his successful broadcast career, Tim is also a gifted engineer. At the age of 12 he was certified as a “creative genius” in problem solving by the British Dyslexia Association, and by the age of 16 he was designing products that are still on sale in High Street shops - folding walking aids, fast flashing break lights that illuminate when cars break heavily, rubberized ice cube trays, and many other creative inventions. Today, he spends his spare time spends rebuilding cars, welding, carving wood, and building huge (and sometimes bizarre) mechanical creations.
On None of the Above, Tim will be challenging the people he meets - and the audience at home - to predict the outcome of a series of ever more spectacular experiments before uncovering the science behind the jaw dropping outcomes. From landing a helicopter on a single layer of eggs without cracking a shell to using custard to protect a watch from hammer blows, Tim shows us that the real world around us is far more impressive than any magic trick or illusion.
