A cerebral blend of stand-up comedy with science. Tim Lee is a comedian with a Ph.D. Who’s become an internet sensation with more than 4 million views of his YouTube videos

“You know how Larry the Cable Guy’s act pretty much consists of him yelling “Git ‘er done!” every five minutes or so? Scientist-turned-comic Tim Lee’s material is the diametric opposite. Lee, who got his PhD before realizing where his true talents lay, blends science talk (complete with PowerPoint presentations) with comedy. The hilarious result is like what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin” – The Boston Phoenix

“very cerebral comedy” – NY Times

Tim 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 went on to complete 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.

Tim can be seen on How Do They Do It on Science Channel. Tim has performed on “Laughs” on Fox television stations and at venues like the Venetian Las Vegas and Hollywood Improv.
