Tim Reid

Tim Reid was born on December 19, 1944 in Norfolk, Virginia. His father is William Lee Reid, and his mother is Augustine Reid. Despite the fact that he didn't have much money, he believed education was important and earned a business administration degree from Norfolk State College.

Reid was employed by Du Pont in Chicago, when he and a friend created their own nightclub act, called "Tim and Tom". Though the act didn’t last long, it did help Reid make connections in show business. He took some drama classes and honed his comedy act, and eventually got work in television variety shows and commercials.

He first won national recognition playing the role of a disk jockey named “Venus Flytrap" on the sitcom, WKRP in Cincinnati. He also had roles on Frank's Place, Snoops (which he created), and Sister, Sister. More recently, he had a recurring role on That 70s Show.

His married his first wife, Rita, in 1967. They had two children, Tim Reid II, and Tori Reid, both of whom followed their father’s footsteps into show business. He and his second wife, Daphne Maxwell Reid, have been married since 1982, and co-founded a production studio together.
