Since giving up his job as a grocery truck driver in 2002, Tim Hawkins has been establishing himself as one of the most in-demand comedians in the country. With 300,000,000 video views online and more than 100 sold-out concerts every year, his Jackwagon Crew has grown into a revolution of multi-generational proportions. His gut-busting comedy show entertains the entire family- a daunting task in an age where the obscene has become routine. His act is 1 part gifted + 2 parts twisted, the only certainty being his on-the-nose observations that expose the ridiculousness of daily life while marveling in its hilarity. The perils of marriage, homeschooling, and growing up in the Midwest may not exemplify the rock star life, but they make for great punchlines.
Attend his Birmingham show July 14 and you will also be amazed at his singing voice and guitar chops. Hawkins’ music videos have brought him viral YouTube fame with fan favorites including “The Chick-fil-A Song,” “Yoga Pants,” “Aging Rockers,” “Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife,” “Cletus Take the Reel,” “A Homeschool Family,” and “The Government Can.” Still, Tim admits he is not a rock star: “It’s not like I have a choice. Comedy is my only life skill.”
Hawkins July 14 show will be at the BJCC Concert Hall and begins at 7:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit www.ticketmaster.com or call 800-745-3000.
