"Very cerebral comedy" - NY Times
A cerebral blend of stand-up comedy with science. Tim Lee is a comedian with a Ph.D. who's become an international sensation selling out shows from Boston to Melbourne.
"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
