Active since the early 1990s, Tim Wilson was as much a comedian as he was a novelty singer. His material was often topical in nature, addressing the political climate with his own libertarian views. When he wasn't doing that, he was poking fun at himself or the South, or bringing out the guitar to do some novelty songs.
Tim Wilson was also a fixture on The Bob & Tom Show
. He died February 27, 2014, of a heart attack.
Tim Wilson's works provide examples of:
- Clumsy Copyright Censorship: To get the Chuck E. Cheese's song on an album, he had to name it "Chucky Cheese H*ll" and put a warning on the album that the song was not approved by Chuck E. Cheese's.
- Country Rap: Parodied on "Hillbilly Homeboy".
- Deep South: Like many Southern comedians, he joked about Southern stereotypes regularly.
- I Want My Jetpack: "Where's My Jetpack" of course.
- It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: In one skit, Tim begins talking about hummus, which he pronounces "hoo-moos". After an audience member tells him that it's pronounced "hum-us", he defends himself by saying that his wife's Israeli and serves it all the time, then questions how much "hoo-moos" the audience member has eaten in his lifetime.
- Long Title: "Dale Darrell Waltrip Richard Petty Rusty Awesome Bill Irvin Gordon Earnhardt Smith… Johnson, Jr."
- The Munchausen: The "Uncle BS" skits, in which the uncle in question recounts a blatantly made-up story about where he was on a certain day in time.
- Parody Commercial: The last track on Hillbilly Homeboy is one for "Love Songs for Losers".
- Phony Veteran: "He's My Brother-in-Law": "He tries to blame it all on Vietnam / But he wasn't there, he was twelve in '74".
- Sound Effect Bleep: "Darryl Stokes, that dumb sonofa [BLAM], almost shot Santa Claus."
- Stuffy Old Songs About the Buttocks: "Booty Man", Played for Laughs.
- Subverted Rhyme Every Occasion: Occurs in "Love Songs for Losers": "Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck / I think she finally wants to fffffffffforget about yesterday."
- Suck E. Cheese's: "Chucky Cheese Hell" is sung from the point of view of a bouncer at a Chuck E. Cheese's.
