Tim Lee is a genius - hilarious with his low-key, straight-man delivery. Was so tickled by the information he provided at the beginning, to help us understand the show, which of course no one actually needed. The Power Point slides for which he is...continued

Tim Lee is a very funny guy, and his comedy routine is refreshingly different. The use of science charts that morph into joke charts was hilarious. Some of his observations were very wry and very on-point. My husband and I took our 14-year-old...continued

Tim was great and very funny! I really loved how he used his science background in his material.

Tim Lee is funny in a very intelligent sort of manner and has a reserved sort of humor. We had a great time!

Tim has a fun and unique show. Wished he'd have been onstage longer.

Tim Lee's "scientific" graphing of life's uncomfortable moments are innovative and very funny.

The three performers were very good (specially the first one and Tim Lee) and we laughed a lot. Good clean humor suitable for every age or audience. As a scientist, I really loved the scientific component of this show. I would come back to hear...

Easy will call pick up, great seats. Open seating in section you paid for. Beautiful auditorium. Atlas use to be a movie theater that I went to every weekend as a child. They've remodeled it beautifully into a theater for live performances. The...

Enjoyable show. Great venue and good performers. The opening act was a great surprise (didn't catch his name) and Tim Lee was really very funny. His comments on the state of the H street streetcar project were dead-on and hilarious.

The show was fast paced and funny!
Using social media for contests requires wifi access. Their wifi didn't work at the end of the show.

It's a rare pleasure when I can spend 90 minutes laughing at humor which is both intelligent and not "blue". Tim is a very funny guy and I plan on watching for him to return to this area again (hopefully soon).

We had a blast! Tim Lee's "seminars" were fun and funny. Hope to see him perform again soon. However, I was not impressed by the feature comedian. Some of his "jokes" were cringe-inducing.

very funny guy, especially when he speaks to his scientific overheads, the lead-in comedians were good too. a pretty sophisticated audience, probably more than your average audience.

Tim Lee gives a funny performance without all the filthy language that other comedians can't resist. He is funny and provides a different approach to humor using science as a basis. Loved it!

Personally, I found his comedy to be pretty refreshing, as stuff like this is quite up my alley. I don't think you really have to recognize the scientific concepts to understand his humor (you'll probably laugh anyway), but for the ones that I did...

Boring!! Tedious. This "comedian" has the perfect cure for insomnia - his routine. Save your money and go watch weeds grow. That would be funnier and more stimulating.

Missed almost all of the first performer because the line at Will Call was sooo long! Second performer was fair and Tim Lee was Really Great! Glad we went.
