Fringe Spotlight #1: Scientist Turned Comedian

The Fringe festival is only two months away and I’ve barely started looking at the lineup for it. I do not it’ll be a hotbed of nerdiness though. Example #1 is Scientist Turned Comedian Tim Lee. Make sure to check out the Fringe Schedule at fringetheatre.ca once it’s released for his full lineup once its released (and stay tuned for more nerdy highlights from the upcoming Fringe as we find them).

“You know how Larry the Cable Guy’s act pretty much consists of him yelling “Git ‘er done!” every five minutes or so? Scientist-turned-comic Tim Lee’s material is the diametric opposite. Lee, who got his PhD before realizing where his true talents lay, blends science talk (complete with PowerPoint presentations) with comedy. The hilarious result is like what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin”
