Tim Lee, Scientist Turned Comedian


"Very cerebral comedy" ~New York 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.

"A refreshing comic find" ~San Francisco Examiner 

Tim has become an underground sensation with over 4 million views on his YouTube videos. Piggybacking that success, Tim took the show on the road selling out shows from New York to Sydney. 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 for universities across the country, companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Genentech and Microsoft and at venues like the Venetian, the Punch Line and The Improv.

"...like what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin" ~The Boston Phoenix
