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.
