Comedian Tim Lee is "what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin" (The Boston Phoenix). A nationally touring comedian with a Ph.D. in biology, Lee has become an underground sensation, with more than three 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 the relationship between sexual attraction and length of abstinence.

Reviews & Ratings
The Big Funk, an absurd comedy written by Pulitzer Prize winning author John Patrick Shanley, opens with an argument over who - of the 4 characters- is the hero of the story There's Fifi, a svelte woman who is immediately informed that she's pregnant with twins and is due the next day; Her husband Omar, a circus performer who not only makes a living throwing knives at a 1" black dot 35 feet away but who has a reputation for doing it very well; His friend Austin, an out of work actor who wears a drip-dry suit in order to give a woman he's just met a nice bath; Jill, a campaign manager, looking for a soul mate; And Gregory, a man who carries a family-size jar of Vaseline petroleum jelly in a brown paper bag, ready at any time to apply it toward someone's humiliation. How do these people function in a society filled with cynicism? Who is the hero? What is the Big Funk? Incorporated into each performance will be the hottest funk/pop/rock bands in the Greater Boston area, which will play original music in service of each performance.
