Comedian Timmy Tim was born in Spartanburg, SC and is the 2nd of 3 boys. He was inspired to pursue a comedy career in high school after seeing Richard Pryor on HBO.
Tim blessed the mic at a talent competition in his hometown of Spartanburg at Mickey’s Silver Bullet. He placed 2nd out of 50 contestants. Tim moved to Columbia, SC to further pursue his career in comedy. At first he struggled to find his path and one evening after an open mic at The Comedy House Tim was asked by radio personality Broadway Joe (Joel Ratcliff) to work on his radio show.
Today Tim is still on the air at IHeart Media’s Throw Back 105.5 and 100.1 The Beat.
He is at home on the stage with stars such as Kevin Hart, Kat Williams, Bruce Bruce, John Witherspoon, Mike Epps, Gary Owens, Sherly Underwood, Monique, Adele Gives, Sommore, Eddie Giffin, Arnez Jay, and D.L. Hughley. He has also hosted concerts for musical acts such as Charlie Wilson, Anthony Hamilton, Melanie Fiona, Trey Songz, Monica, Joe, H-Town, and Fantasia.
After 20 years of telling jokes in Columbia, Charlotte and Atlanta, Adele asked him to go on tour with her. She appears with Timmy on stage at Improv Comedy Clubs around the country.
His motto is inspired by two of his idols, Richard Pryor, and Malcolm X, “Be funny by any means necessary”.
