Burke Entertainment was founded in 2007 by Tim Burke. Tim's passion for entertaining dates back before his teenage years. If you ask his mom, she'll remind everyone of the days of this 10yr old doing Elvis impressions.
Tim attended High School in Glendora Ca, where he was raised from 11mos old. Some of his fondest memories of the High School days were of course winning the 1990 basketball CIF Championships. Tim attended Northern Arizona University (NAU) and graduated college with honors in 1994. His degree in Public Relations/Communications was infused with his "elective" classes focused on Journalism where he wrote provoking commentary in the school newspaper, radio where he sold advertising and of course television production where he developed the #1 TV show in Flagstaff on U-TV Rondaerobics. Tim tells us it was not too difficult to gather viewers to watch sorority sisters bouncing around doing aerobics.
College was also Tim's entry into the entertainment spotlight of stand-up comedy. After winning a talent show on campus as a freshman, Tim immediately hit the local comedy clubs beaming with confidence. It only took that first club appearance to humble him ever so slightly! "You could hear a pin drop" said Tim of his first night on the club stage. That one night led to an entire college career of nationwide travel on the comedy circuit. Everything from MC to headliner, Tim loved the spotlight.
After college, Tim bypassed several opportunities in the entertainment business (they didn't pay as good) to go to work in his father's business. Unfortunately in 2001 Tim's father passed away. After his father's death, Tim helped the company nearly double sales through new sales and marketing strategies. Tim continued to work in the family business until the end of 2006.
After Tim's departure from the family business, he immediately found himself with the opportunity to host his own radio show in the LA/San Bernardino markets in Southern California. Extreme Reality quickly became a hit. The show originally aired at 2pm but was eventually moved to 4pm as the lead-in to the Roseanne Barr Talk Radio Show. Tim had the opportunity to sit in with Roseanne several times. When Roseanne left the radio station, Extreme Reality expanded to a 2 hour show during drive time 4-6pm. After the owner of the radio station extended Tim the opportunity to stay on the air for an additional 10 years (Tim respectfully declined the offer) he was let go prior to the completion of his contract.
Tim, although upset about not being able to complete his contract and missing the opportunity to give his fans one last "PEACE OUT!", immediately found himself with the opportunity to earn a speaking role (although small) in his very first acting gig (Harry Nash). That led to Tim jumping into production as well as acting.
Tim first started as Executive Producer of "Truth Not Tabloid" He then moved into production on "Confessions".
Tim's acting career has seen some fun roles from TV show Host, to Hooded Demon to of course getting back on the comedy improv stage. As more things continue to unfold, Tim has promised to keep us updated. Make sure you visit his Event Calendar Page to keep up with his schedule (assuming he keeps up with it!).
