Comedian Tim Wilson, a regular on the Bob & Tom radio show, died unexpectedly on Wednesday night. He was 52.
Wilson died of an apparent heart attack in Nashville, according to the radio show’s website.
A statement was posted on the website early Thursday morning:
“Regular listeners to this show know that Tim is a friend and a brother to all of us at the Bob & Tom Show. It is a very difficult day, and we couldn’t be more saddened by the passing of a comedy legend. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tim’s loved ones. Tim’s first appearance on the show took place on April 13, 1995. His first bit played on the Bob & Tom Show was “Acid Country.”
“Tim is a brother to all of us at the BOB & TOM Show,” said Tom Griswold. “He had a comedic voice like none other. He will be terribly missed.”
Wilson was scheduled to perform this weekend in Birmingham, Alabama.
Wilson was considered a rare comedy talent by many, known best for his songs like Garth Brooks Has Ruined My Life. He appeared on several television shows including Evening At The Improv, Showtime’s Comedy Club Network and The Tonight Show.
Locally, Wilson appeared at Charlie Goodnights Retaurant in Raleigh back in May. He also appeared at Carolina Theatre a few years ago.
