DES MOINES, IA - 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 over 100 sold-out concerts every year, his Jackwagon Crew has grown into a revolution of multi-generational proportions. Now Tim brings his hilarity to the Des Moines Civic Center on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. Tim’s special guest will be Daren Streblow.
Tickets to TIM HAWKINS will go on sale Friday, Oct. 28, 2016 starting at 10 a.m. at DesMoinesPerformingArts.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, by phone at (515) 246-2300 or on the Des Moines Performing Arts app (available for Android and IOS users).
Tim’s gut-busting comedy show entertains the entire family while doubling down on the funny, 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 really good punchlines.
Sure he’s funny, but fans are often even more amazed at his singing voice and guitar chops. Tim’s hilarious 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 is no rock star: “It’s not like I have a choice. Comedy is my only life skill.”
Tim reminds us that for life’s many difficulties, laughter is always the best medicine – when the medication runs out. He just finished filming his 9th comedy special, “Just About Enough”, which will be released November 25, 2016. He lives in Missouri with his wife and four crud muffins.
