Tyler Perry Biography

Tyler Perry is a famous TV Producer, who was born on September 13, 1969 in United States. Producer, playwright, filmmaker, director, and actor who was dubbed the highest paid man in entertainment by Forbes magazine in 2011. According to Astrologers, Tyler Perry's zodiac sign is Virgo.

Tyler Perry (born Emmitt Perry Jr.; September 13, 1969) is an American actor, writer, producer, comedian and director. In 2011, Forbes listed him as the highest-paid man in entertainment, earning US$ 130 million between May 2010 and May 2011.

His mother Willie Maxine Perry died in 2009. In December 2014, he welcomed a son named Aman with longtime partner Gelila Bekele.

Around 1990, Perry moved to Atlanta, where two years later I Know I’ve Been Changed was first performed at a community theater, financed by the 22-year-old Perry’s $12,000 life savings. The play included Christian themes of forgiveness, dignity, and self-worth, while addressing issues such as child abuse and dysfunctional families. The musical initially received a “less than stellar” reception and was a financial failure. Perry persisted, and over the next six years he rewrote the musical repeatedly, though lackluster reviews continued. In 1998, at age 28, he succeeded in retooling the play and restaging it in Atlanta, first at the House of Blues, then at the Fox Theatre. Perry continued to create new stage productions, touring with them on the so-called “Chitlin’ Circuit” (now also known as the “urban theater circuit”) and developing a large, devoted following among African-American audiences. In 2005, Forbes reported that he had sold “more than $100 million in tickets, $30 million in videos of his shows and an estimated $20 million in merchandise”, and “the 300 live shows he produces each year are attended by an average of 35,000 people a week”.
