Tim Wilson passed away on February 26, 2014 from heart failure while visiting his brother in Columbus, GA. Tim was 52, and a resident of Nashville. He was a country comedian and born funnyman, delivering dead-on impressions of his teachers while still in elementary school. After an attempted music career, Wilson turned to comedy and immediately earned a devoted local following. Soon thereafter, he won a Cinemax standup competition, spurring a series of television spots to follow, and launching his career in comedy.
Tim was well loved by fans in Nashville as well as his co-entertainers across the county. In his honor, the Tim Wilson Memorial Fun was created, and all proceeds from the show will benefit the fund.
Gift certificates are available in a variety of denominations and may be redeemed toward any arts performance at TPAC or War Memorial Auditorium. The gift of live performance makes memories to last a lifetime and supports TPAC’s non-profit mission.
