Described as "what would happen if you crossed your high school chem teacher with George Carlin" (The Boston Phoenix), scientist-turned-comedian Tim Lee headlines this unique stand-up comedy show at Intermedia Arts. A nationally touring comedian with a Ph.D. in biology, Lee has become an underground sensation, with more than 3 million combined views of his wildly popular YouTube videos, plus sold-out shows from New York to Seattle to Hollywood. His unique style and hilarious PowerPoint presentations apply scientific principles to everyday life, from the hair that collects on a bar of soap to sexual attraction's relationship to length of abstinence.

In Self (the Remix), critically-acclaimed performance artist Robert Farid Karimi offers a fresh view on American identity, remixing personal & political history as he travels from Mexican restaurants to mixed culture moshpits in this electrifying exploration of manhood, nationhood and neighborhood. The child of Iranian and Guatemalan immigrants, Karimi flows through 23 different characters, some real and others imaginary, accompanied by a soundscape spun live onstage by DJ D Double, which ranges from hip-hop to punk to disco and everything in-between.
