When Kay quits her corporate job to teach English at a Chicago public school, visions of changing the world dance in her head. But in Principal Principle, a dark comedy written by former teacher Joe Zarrow (that now returns to Theater Wit by popular demand), Kay learns that plenty of things are broken -- the copy machine, the spirits of her fellow teachers and the system. Take a peek behind the doors of the teachers' lounge to discover the politics and people who come together to try and make a difference -- any way they can. Learn More

“Very cerebral comedy” —The New York Times
“A refreshing comic find” —San Francisco Examiner
“Like what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin” —Boston 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. Tim Lee has performed for clubs, colleges and companies across the USA. He draws heavily on his science background to twist abstract theory into thought provoking comedy.
Tim’s films have screened at film festivals across the country and been broadcast internationally. He is one of the Top 100 most subscribed comedians on Youtube. He’s done a commercial for the NHL opposite Jonathan Cheechoo and was the Spare the Air Guy pictured in TV commercials, and on posters, trains and buses.
