"Did You Hear the One About the Former Scientist?"

"Biologist-comic seeks good chemistry with audience"

"Editor's Pick"

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 | Mottley's Comedy Club, 61 Chatham St, Boston | 8 pm | $20; $10 students | 877.615.2844 - The Boston Phoenix


Off the Charts Comedy Show - DVD



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 has become an underground sensation with over 3 million views on his YouTube videos. Piggybacking that success, Tim took the show on the road selling out shows from New York to San Diego. Audiences hungry for comedy that is smart and funny flocked to the show. Lee's comedy uses scientific phenomena and tools to explain everything from the hair that collects on a bar of soap to how his standards drop rapidly with abstinence.

Tim has performed at universities such as Stanford, Berkeley (Cal), and UCSD, and at venues such as the Venetian, the Punch Line, and the Improv.
