Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold of “The Bob & Tom Show” are celebrating the life of comedian Tim Wilson with a benefit concert. Kevoian and Griswold will host the live comedy show at 7:30 p.m. May 9 at the historic Paramount Theatre in Anderson.
Chick McGee and Kristi Lee from The Bob & Tom Show will perform, along with comedians Drew Hastings, Heywood Banks, Donnie Baker, Dr. Gonzo, and others.
Tim Wilson died unexpectedly at the age of 52 on Feb. 26. Proceeds from this show will go to the Tim Wilson Memorial Fund, established for his two children, including to help fund their college educations. Wilson was a frequent guest on The Bob & Tom Show and a favorite of the cast, as well as listeners.
“Tim was a member of The Bob & Tom Show family and is greatly missed,” Griswold said. “We want to support his wife and kids, and a benefit show is the best way we know to honor Tim’s memory. Getting together to laugh, while raising money for his family, seems like the perfect tribute to a great guy.”
