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 (that’s 300 million!) video views online and over 100 sold-out concerts every year, his Jackwagon Crew has grown into a revolution of multi-generational proportions. But don’t take it from us…

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 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 released his 9th comedy DVD, “Just About Enough.” Tim lives in Missouri with his wife and four crud muffins.

About the Venue


The Autumn Ridge Church Arts Series brings the finest and most significant world-class Christian artists to Southeast Minnesota. Founded in 2007, the Autumn Ridge Church Arts Series hosts two major arts events annually.


Located on a 60-acre scenic hillside in Rochester Minnesota, Autumn Ridge Church is the largest and oldest congregation in Southeast Minnesota. Autumn Ridge is a non-denominational church founded in 1857, moving to its current site in 2006. The facility offers to greater Rochester more than 100,000 square feet of worship, ministry, and service space. Accessible by a local international airport and home of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester is a thriving community just 90 miles south of the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.


The main auditorium seats 1188, with reserved seating and general admission capabilities. The space is acoustically tuned for presentations ranging from major touring rock shows to dramatic theatrical performances, chamber orchestras, smaller ensembles, choirs, and conferences. Served by theatrical lighting and a substantial house PA, the space also routinely accommodates touring shows with traveling and contracted production and backline. The venue is served by experienced professional and volunteer staff. A spacious lobby accommodates pre- and post-show activities, ticketing, and merchandise sales. Complete back of house facilities are available.


An attached athletic facility, the CENTER provides a venue for high-energy youth events with 1,200 – 1,500 standing festival capacity. The CENTER also provides showers, catering, and dressing room facilities.


Adjacent to the main lobby, this multi-purpose space is served by a commercial kitchen.


At 4,000 square feet with a capacity of 150, this warm chapel space is popular for smaller performing events and meet/greet activities.
