"A refreshing comic find" - San Francisco Examiner

"Hilarious and smart--not an easy combination" - Grant from Santa Cruz

Tim's unique brand of comedy is clean, intelligent and oh-so-funny. He combines stand-up comedy with PowerPoint presentations for a one-two punch that's hard to match...making him the perfect comic for conventions and corporate events.

Lee's performance ignites a chain reaction of smart humor that is high tech, high brow, and high energy. Imagine watching as a seemingly ordinary PowerPoint presentation is transformed into gut-busting comedy. Lee cleverly draws out the idiosyncrasies in relationships and popular culture...and illustrates them through examples from science and technology. The experience is funny, fresh, and relatable.

Lee wasn't supposed to be a comedian. A biologist by training, he graduated magna cum laude from UC San Diego with honors in biology. He then completed his PhD at UC Davis. He spent years developing simulation and analytical models of population dynamics before he discovered that this bored him to tears. When he tried comedy for the first time, the tears stopped.

Lee has appeared at comedy festivals from Las Vegas to DC. He draws heavily on his science background to twist abstract theory into thought-provoking comedy. Though Tim is a smash hit with Tech and Science groups, his witty, statistical approach to all aspects of life and relationships make him a fresh, hilarious act in all corporate and event settings.

Lee's films have screened at film festivals across the country and been broadcast internationally. He is one of the Top 100 most subscribed comedians on YouTube. He's in a commercial for the NHL starring opposite Jonathan Cheechoo, and is the Spare the Air Guy on TV, posters, trains and buses.

Tim has performed for a wide range of companies and organizations including AutoDesk, Micron, Sanmina-SCI, CVM, Periscope Cellars, and Century 21 Foundation.
