A Scientist Turned Comedian
KC Fringe Festival
Tim Lee has a very dry delivery style. As a math, logic, and philosophy geek myself, I recognized and understood the scientific principles he presented in his stand-up routine. His use of those principles in everyday comic situations was creative and fun.
Personally, I think it was the best explanation of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle I have ever seen. There is a lot of subtlety to the show. He presents a joke, gives you time to figure it out for yourself. The faster you read, the faster you'll get the joke.
While it is a very low-key presentation, it is hysterically funny. The show mixes regular stand-up routines with a power-point lecture on scientific principles applied to everyday situations.
If you didn't pay attention in high school physics, you'll finally realize what you were missing out on.
I liked this show and the intellectual humor. Low-brow fans will enjoy this show as well, but probably not as much as a burlesque show or Benny Hill. If you're willing to think to get your laughs, this show is a must see for you.
