Tim Powers (9)
Born and raised on the mean streets of St. Louis, Missouri (Duchesne High School, 1987), Tim developed a taste for fresh-brewed Budweiser at an early age -- and maintains it to this day. Tim's HUGE family taught him to be funny or die. He told jokes to keep his family from either beating him up or using him to test out make-up and hair techniques. Sometimes, it even worked (however, Tim is aware that he is an "autumn" and that he looks best in "viva glam" lipstick and a touch of color in his cheeks).
In the early days of the 21st Century, Tim's career in radio found him working behind the scenes at the legendary Rock powerhouse KSHE-95 and Classical KFUO-FM in St. Louis where his talents for comedy and
advertising copy were honed. Tim was nominated for and won several awards for creative advertising in St. Louis.
As a featured member of St. Louis' improvisational company "CITYimprov" at historical Union Station, Tim developed a local following and spun off into the popular improv troupes 'Throw Chocolate and Run Like Hell' as well as "Grow Arms Grow."
Tim moved to Los Angeles after barnstorming through the Midwest -- and can't go back because of that darn restraining order. Tim has performed at the Hollywood Improv, the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip, LA's Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater, IO-West and Los Angeles' Second City.
People seem to think he's funny.
