THE TRUTH IS RARELY PURE AND NEVER SIMPLE

This work in development explores Wilde’s infamous account of lost love and betrayal, so beautifully expressed in his “letter from Reading Gaol,” and takes us into his journey of transformation from the depths of despair to transcendent heights of forgiveness and understanding.

By Oscar Wilde

Adapted for the stage by Brian Mertes

Scientist Turned Comedian: Tim Lee @ The ArtsCenter
Jan 21 @ 8:00 pm

A creative blend of stand-up comedy with science. Tim Lee is a comedian with a Ph.D. who has become a sensation selling out shows from Boston to Melbourne. You can see Tim featured in Science Channel’s How Do They Do it.

Tim 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 views on his YouTube videos. 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 over time.
