Great show! This was our first time at Helium Comedy Club and we were pleasantly surprised. It's a classy place you can tell they put some money into fixing it up.
Tim Lee's performance was clean, smart, and hysterical. We really had a lot of fun.

He was very entertaining! I have already recommended him to others should he ever be back in town. I really enjoyed the third opening comedian as well!

The management came to our table 4 times and told us to be quiet. IT"S A COMEDY ACT. We were actually enjoying ourselves. until we were centered out. I have never been treated so badly, and we will never go back to this club. I rate the club...continued

Description

This show is recommended for ages 13 and older.

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 starring opposite Jonathan Cheechoo, and was the Spare the Air Guy pictured in TV commercials, and on posters, trains and buses.
