TINY TIM: KING FOR A DAY
The story about the outcast Herbert Khaury’s rise to stardom as Tiny Tim is the ultimate fairytale. And so is his downfall. Either considered a freak or a genius Tiny Tim left no one unaffected. Over 45 million Americans watched his wedding on the Carson Show, and his queer personality has been celebrated by the likes of Bob Dylan, and Johnny Depp.
There were plans and hopes that Tiny Tim would be a lasting star, not only a novelty act. But one man ruined these plans. Tiny Tim.
The exclusive access to Tiny Tim’s diaries, and interviews with his family and friends, tells the story about one of the oddest stars the world has ever seen. A life of struggle; against his skeptical parents, hostile neighbours, booing audiences, and his battle with mental illness. And girls! Girls! Girls! And a boy. But also Tiny’s fanatical belief: One day I will be famous!
