You can park in the garage (next to Ralph's) which is free. It's @ a quarter of a mile (5 min walk) to the theatre from there. lots of places to eat in the nearby vicinity so you can grab dinner beforehand (food at Improv isn't the greatest)

Quotes & Highlights

“A refreshing comic find.” —San Francisco Examiner
“Lee’s comedy is smart” —North County Times
“He’s kind of like Bruce Wayne but with a sense of humor.” —California Aggie
_ _ Watch videos of Tim’s comedy.


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 has become an underground sensation with over 3 million views on his YouTube videos. Piggybacking that success, Tim took the show on the road selling out shows from New York to San Diego. Audiences hungry for comedy that is smart and funny flocked to the show. Lee’s comedy uses scientific phenomena and tools to explain everything from the hair that collects on a bar of soap to how his standards drop rapidly with abstinence.
