Scientist Turned Comedian: Tim Lee at Playhouse on the Park

Playhouse on the Park

1850 N. Central Avenue | Phoenix, AZ


  • Featuring comedian Tim Lee, an underground sensation selling out shows from New York to Hollywood!
  • This hilarious set draws from experiences of Lee's former work as a biologist, presented as an informative and hilarious powerpoint!
  • A chance to see this creative show now in Phoenix!


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.

"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
