Behind the Laughter: Spring Day Comedian Husband Tim Renkow

Spring Day, the comedian and actress, has been married for three years to her comic husband, Tim Renkow.

Key Takeaways

  • Spring Day and Tim Renkow met in Edinburgh while she was performing. They became friends for four years before they dated.
  • Despite facing challenges as a disabled couple, they find humor in misconceptions about their relationship.
  • Tim Renkow’s journey, from being diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby to achieving success in acting and comedy, showcases his determination and talent in overcoming obstacles.

The couple met in Edinburgh when she was doing a show. After they got to know each other, she motivated and forced him to do a show.

He said, “I was like, okay. I like this woman.”

Then, they became friends for about four years, and when Spring moved to the States, they really hit it off and started dating.

Talking about their relationship, she once mentioned in a 2019 BBC podcast that when she moved to New York, Tim invited her to his home to meet his family and confess his love.

Initially, they had planned to get married the month after Covid started, but of course, they had to cancel it.

Eventually, the couple wedded on September 29, 2020, and have been happily married ever since.

Talking about the daily struggle of the disabled couple, Spring jokingly said that not many people think of her as his wife rather than his mom or nurse.

Regardless, there are a few perks, such as “nice front-row seats at the theater,” said Brooklyn’s Best Comedian in 2016.

Breaking Barriers with Humor: The Rise of Tim Renkow

Tim Renkowborn is an American actor, writer, and comedian best known for playing the leading role of Tim in the TV series “Jerk.”

He was born in 1989 (currently 35 years old) in Mexico City and grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

He was diagnosed at six months old with cerebral palsy, a condition affecting movement, balance, and speech. As a result, he uses a wheelchair for long distances and a walker for shorter distances travel.

Tim’s family moved back to North Carolina when he was young, and he attended art school in Memphis.

Renkow began performing stand-up comedy at 19; his motivation was boredom. He attended a comedy competition next to his dorm, and surprisingly, he came in third place.

At 22, he relocated to London to pursue creative writing and a comedy career. He participated in the Chortle Student Comedy Award Final at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe.

His debut show, “At Least Hell Has Ramps,” in 2014, earned him a nomination for Chortle’s Best Newcomer Award.

Renkow’s television career kicked off in 2016 with an appearance in BBC Comedy Feeds’ “A Brief History of Tim.”

Subsequently, he appeared in four episodes of Bobby & Harriet Get Married, a comedic series documenting Bobby Mair and Harriet Kemsley’s wedding.

The first series of “Jerk” premiered on BBC Three in February 2019, followed by a replay on BBC One and the announcement of a second series in September 2019.

This show largely expanded on the characters from “A Brief History of Tim,” with the second series airing in 2021.

Renkow’s solo performance, “Tim Renkow Tries to Punch Down,” hit London’s Soho Theatre in April 2019.

In 2021, he served on the UK jury for the BAFTA Breakthrough Initiative and appeared on an episode of BBC’s “Live At The Apollo” in Series 16.

On April 23, 2024, he attended the “Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable” show, where he told ‘absolutely horrendous’ stories and had a blast.
