Dr. 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 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 4 million followers on YouTube. Piggybacking that success, Tim took the show on the road selling out shows from New York to Sydney. 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.
Tim has performed for universities across the country, companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Genentech and Microsoft and at venues like the Venetian, the Punch Line and the Improv.
This is the Oklahoma Engineering Foundation’s primary fundraiser for the 2013-2014 Program Year. Oklahoma’s longest-running STEM middle-school initiative, OEF offers multiple STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs statewide at little to no cost for the students/schools: MATHCOUNTS, the OEF Engineering Fair, the Future City Competition, ACECamp, Project Lead the Way, OK FIRST Robotics, and others. For more details, visit www.oef.org. OEF is a 501(c)(3) organization, fully funded by community support.
This event is sponsored by Chesapeake Energy Corporation, KimRay, and OrderMatic Electronics.
