Name: Timothy Harper Dingus

Age: 23

Hometown: I gladly live in Lawrence

Relationship status: I’m happily seeing somebody.

Occupation: Professional entertainer — a comic

Dream job: Retired

What were you doing when scouted? I’m heading to grab some food with my family.

Describe your style: In this instance, it’s what fits today. It’s usually what I have lying around — slightly less than formal but more on the casual side of things.

Fashion trends you love: I like that a lot of guys are starting to wear suits more often.

Fashion trends you hate: The belt was invented for a reason! I suggest that a lot of people get to using it. I don’t want to see your butt hanging out all the time — even if you’re wearing underwear or shorts underneath.

Fashion influences: Old movies, other comic entertainers and such. Anything I wear, I have to be able to perform in it since I’m a juggler.

What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? More appreciation for local music. Less of? It’s getting to the point where I think we have about three or four too many coffee shops in town. It’s not a bad thing but it makes it hard to choose which one to go to from time to time.

Tattoos or piercings: I have one and I don’t think this one counts. It’s a wicked scar!

Whom do people say you look like? I used to get Kramer a lot.

What type of music do you like? Jazz, classical, electro swing, funk. Blues and a bunch of other stuff.

Tell us a secret: Fitting through a tennis racket is a lot easier than you think it is.
