On Wednesday February 26, 2014, we lost yet another icon in the world of comedy: Tim Wilson. Anyone who had ever worked with or seen Tim perform was shocked by his unexpected passing. Tim was as intense offstage as on, engaging in conversations that ranged from politics and history to his research on Ted Bundy. One of his last television appearances was on Billy Gardell’s Road Dogs, the opening music which Wilson produced with guitarist Scotty Bratcher.
While the passing of Tim Wilson is, in of itself, tinged with sadness, WTUE, Busweiser and Wiley’s are honoring the man and his influence on all of us with a tribute featuring some of his friends from the comedy and music world. We hope that this will create a closure for those of us who counted Tim as a friend, for those who were influenced by his work or those who enjoyed his comedy, music and tirades about the Civil War…
…it only takes a moment to say hello and forever to say goodbye
The line up for the tribute show features Lee Cruse, Roger Keiss, Mike Armstrong and the Scotty Bratcher Band. Admission is $20.00 and all proceeds from the door go towards Tim Wilson’s family.
