Tim Lee 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 Ph.D. 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. Lee has performed for clubs, colleges and companies across the U.S. 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.
