Tim began up stand-up comedy at the age of 22 owing to a challenge from his friends to perform stand-up during comedy night at Comedy Castle. This provided the foundation for him to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. His successful stand-up has led to a flurry of local advertisements and cable comedy shows.
He got his big break in 1991 with the casting call for Home Improvement as Tim Taylor. Allen said that he was unaware of his acting ability before to the episode, and that he leaned extensively on his own life experiences to build out his character’s convincing circumstances.
Tim Allen played Santa Claus in Disney’s The Santa Clause in 1994, which was the year’s highest-grossing film. Next year, he’ll be heard as Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s smash film Toy Story.
With Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, he topped the New York Times bestseller’s list in the same year. In 1996, he released I’m Not Really Here, a follow-up to his prior breakthrough.
Toy Story 2 came out the following year, and in 1997 he appeared in Jungle 2 Jungle, before returning to the role of Buzz Lightyear in the sequel. After getting arrested for DUI, Tim Allen found himself back in the news again this year.
Starring alongside legends such as Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, and Sam Rockwell in the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest, he earned recognition for his performance. The actor starred in many Christmas movies in the 2000s, including Santa Clause 2, Santa Clause 3, and Christmas with the Kranks. He appeared in Redbelt, Zoom, and The Shaggy Dog during that time period as well. To close out the decade, Tim Allen made his directorial debut with the film Crazy on the Outside.
In addition, Tim Allen makes a good deal of money from endorsing and advertising various products and services. Travel Michigan hired him in 2009 to narrate the ad campaigns for “Pure Michigan” on television and radio. He started narrating Chevrolet Cruze advertisements in 2010 and has been doing so ever since. He also provided his voice to Campbell’s Soup’s “It’s Amazing What Soup Can Do” ad campaign in the same year.
In 2011, Tim Allen landed another starring role in a comedy with Last Man Standing as Mike Baxter. As the only male in a family of females, the protagonist of this series is a conservative father. Because he is a Republican in a female-dominated household, the program reflects Allen’s real-life experiences, much as Home Improvement does.
The show was dropped by ABC in 2017, but Fox picked it up in 2018. Even before ABC’s decision to cancel Last Man Standing, Tim Allen had signed a part in a Christmas movie: El Camino Christmas.
Tim achieve many awards in his career. Some of which are, Favorite Male Performance (People Choice Award 1992), Favorite Male TV Performer (People Choice Award 1993-99), Favorite Male TV Actor (kids Choice Awards 1994-97), Favorite Comedy Motion Picture Actor (People Choice Award 1995), Favorite Actor In Comedy (TV Guide Awards 1999), and many more.
