Comedian Tim Lee brings his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolution to the Kirkland Performance Center at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on June 28.

Lee is a biologist by training, he graduated magna cum laude from the University of California San Diego with honors. 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.

The show is a creative blend of stand up comedy and science. The NY Times called it “very cerebral comedy” and the Boston Phoenix said, “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."

Tickets are $9 for students, $27 for general admission and $42.50 for reserved seating.
