The result the Times reported, “Is like what would happen if you crossed your high-school chem teacher with George Carlin.

Lee was not supposed to be a comedian. He graduated magna cum laude from UC San Diego with honors in biology. 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, he says the tears stopped.

Tickes are $20 general admission, $9 for students and $30 for VIP seating.
