Best known for playing Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor on the hit TV show "Home Improvement," actor, comedian and author Tim Allen is taking his hilarious stand-up routine to the stage in Vegas.
What started as a dare from a friend in 1979 when Allen performed his first stand-up comedy routine at a club in Michigan, turned into a career for the budding star. From there he continued perfecting his act performing in clubs across the country before setting out for Los Angeles.
He got his big break in 1991 when he was cast for "Home Improvement." Allen's performance as the baffled yet loving husband won him several awards including a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series and eight consecutive People's Choice Awards for Favorite Male Television Performer until the popular sitcom came to an end in 1999.
Allen also found success on the big screen and has been featured in various films including Disney's "The Santa Clause," "The Santa Clause 2" and "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause." In 1995 he lent his voice to the character Buzz Lightyear for the Disney/Pixar film "Toy Story." The film has two sequels, most recently "Toy Story 3," which opened in late June 2010.
Along with his success as an actor, Allen is an accomplished author. His first book "Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man" was released in 1995 and topped the New York Times' Bestseller List. The book's success along with the hit movie "Toy Story" resulted in Allen having a No. 1-rated television show, No. 1 box office smash-hit movie and No. 1 best-selling book, all in the same week.
He followed up his first book with this another bestseller, "I'm Not Really Here," published in 1997.
