Tim Hawkins

I'm not going to buy you an iPhone...

I'm not going to write you a love song...

Tim Hawkins is a Christian comedian known for his wacky, silly parodies to popular songs.  A father with several children, during comedy tours, he expands on his life as a father.  With amazing guitar skills, Hawkins can turn out parodies that magically weave words together--and completely twist the meaning of the original words.

Hawkins' Parodies:

Hawkins' Version......................................Original Song
"Cletus Take the Reel"............................."Jesus Take the Wheel" by Carrie Underwood
"Homeschool Family"..............................."Addams Family Theme Song" from the TV show

From Hawkins' comedy album Rockshow Comedy Tour...

*Under "Parents Rock Part 1"

-iPhone instead of Love Song, by Sara Bareilles
-Home (you're staying home--it's the place where you belong) instead of Home, by Daughtry
-A parody of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours"

To those of you who go on YouTube, look up Tim Hawkins.  There are plenty of videos, including some of those on his comedy tours, and music videos of his parodies.

Tim Hawkins as a comedian is fairly funny, but not as funny as, say, Bill Cosby.  However, his musical skills, sense of humor, and ability to carry a tune make him a memorable and enjoyable person to listen to.
