More Information

Tim can often be seen in the audience watching Flying Theatre Machine with his nephew Jack. Tim has often be overheard saying that Jack, who wants to be an Improviser, will win a Maestro before he does.

Depending on what crowd Tim is in, he has multiple nicknames including:

  • Cubbie - which he earned due to his love of the Chicago Cubs as a member of the TXRD Board Whores
  • Lil Country - while studying various martial arts, being that Tim is not exactly slim and with a longer than normal beard at the time, he resembled a smaller "Big Country" Roy Nelson
  • Sweet T - this is what his co-workers call him
