Street parking is sometimes available, particularly for matinees. Or, for $10 (payable immediately) have one of the valets park your car. Call ahead to make sure the valet service will be offered for the performance you plan to attend.

Allow plenty of time to find parking. Theater has a very small lot that is hard to find.

Tim Lee was hysterical (and if you're hysterical at 4 in the afternoon, you're pretty dang funny)! The opening comedian left something to be desired, but Tim was very good.

Well, what a surprise! Standing in line and standing in line, waiting for the house to open, eager to see Tim based on his YouTube material, only to be greeted by someone else. WTF? And another one after that? Am I going to get out of here on...continued

Description

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.
