Perry, Tyler (I) Biography




biography of Perry, Tyler (I)

Emmitt Perry Jr.
14 September 1969, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
6' 5"
Perry was born and raised in New Orleans. His mother was a church-goer and took Perry along with her once a week. His father was a carpenter and they had a very strained and abusive relationship, which led Perry to suffer from depression as a teenager. In 1991, he was working an office job, when he saw an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (1986) discussing the therapeutic nature of writing. This inspired him to begin writing and he worked through his bad experiences by writing letters to himself. He adapted his letters into a play, 'I Know I've Changed', about domestic abuse. Unfortunately, after renting a theater in Atlanta to put on the play, he failed to attract audiences. He took on a series of odd jobs and found himself living in his car. But, in 1998, he was given a second chance to stage his play and this time he was more business-savvy with his marketing. The play was sold-out and drew attention from investors. Tyler has gone on to established a successful career as a writer, director and producer for stage, television and film.
Kad



-   Sets his film/TV productions in Atlanta, Georgia or Louisiana

-   African American themes


-   Has been writing plays since he was 18. As of March 2005, his eight plays have grossed over US$75 million in tickets and DVD sales.

-   Before becoming a successful film-maker with _Diary of a Mad Black Woman (2005)_ (qv), he was already the owner of a successful play company that tours the country and caters to African-Americans. His plays are also recorded and sold as DVDs.

-   His plays often reference _The Color Purple (1985)_ (qv), which starred 'Oprah Winfrey' (qv). He credits _"The Oprah Winfrey Show" (1986)_ (qv) with inspiring him to write.

-   Has a 12-acre estate outside Atlanta. He bought the former Dean Gardens in Johns Creek, GA for $7.6 million (previously listed as high as $40 million). The property has 1200 feet adjoining the Chattahoochee River, a golf course and is 58 acres.

-   Often quotes famous black-focused movies such as _What's Love Got to Do with It (1993)_ (qv) and _The Color Purple (1985)_ (qv). These two are especially quoted in _Madea's Family Reunion (2006)_ (qv).

-   2007 - Ranked #7 on EW's The 50 Smartest People in Hollywood.

-   Attended high school with rapper 'Mystikal (I)' (qv).

-   His mother, Willie Maxine Perry, passed away on December 8, 2009 at age 64. She was a preschool teacher who worked at the New Orleans Jewish Community Center for most of her life.


-   Play: "Madea Goes to Jail"

-   Book: "Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings", 2006

-   Play "Why Did I Get Married?"


-   I know my audience, and they're not people that the studios know anything about.

-   Hollywood is finally waking up to the fact that people who go to church also go to the movies. I'm not sure what took them so long to see that or how long they'll keep it up.

-   Did you know you can't say 'Jesus' in a sitcom? They told me that and I was like, You gotta be kiddin' me. If you don't want my God here, you don't want me here either. God has been too good to me to go and try to sell out to get some money..It ain't gonna happen.

-   He who has the gold makes the rules. (_"60 Minutes" (1968)_ (qv), 25 October 2009)

-   It takes a week to do a sitcom in Hollywood. I do a show a day in my studio, three or four shows a week.

-   [on 'Spike Lee' (qv)'s criticism of him] I'm so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee. Spike can go straight to hell! You can print that. I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying, 'this is a coon, this is a buffoon.' I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: 'you vote by what you see,' as if black people don't know what they want to see.
