Stand-up comedian turned Hollywood film star Tim Allen will be performing a pair of shows this weekend in Royal Oak, MI, and now it looks like he’ll keep going with those jokes of his well into the new year. The veteran showbiz actor and comedian will be touring across North America this fall, with performances currently scheduled up until the beginning of December. He’s now also set to appear at Kansas City’s Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland on Feb. 2, and St. Louis’ Peabody Opera House on Feb. 3.
His upcoming performances this weekend at the Royal Oak Music Theatre should hold a special place in Allen’s heart. It was in Royal Oak, Mich. back in 1975 when on the whim of a dare from one of his friends, Allen delivered his first ever stand-up performance at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle. He would continue to build a name for himself across the country before becoming a household name in the 1990s as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on the hit family sitcom, Home Improvement.
Allen would continue to establish himself an entertainment family favorite throughout the 90s and into the 2000s as part of The Santa Claus film series and as the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Disney’s hugely successful Toy Story franchise. And to think it all started out with a dare. He returned television in 2011, starring in a new sitcom titled Last Man Standing, which just ended its six season run this past spring.
