My First Real Break

For the first time in 5 years I took the entire summer off. My first real break. It was hard at first because I'm always busy. I didn't know how to unwind. But now that I've been off for 8 weeks I'm trying to figure out how to go back to work... LOL.

Anyway, I go back to work September 17th. That's the Monday after my birthday. I'll be 43, getting better with age buddy... LOL. 

Hope you got your tickets to Madea Gets a Job. I'm coming to throw down :-). Tickets start at $25 and are on sale everywhere. Hope to see you on this last leg of the tour.

See you out there,

    Whats up TP, just wanted to say I enjoy a lot of your work and I'm looking forward to seeing that Alex Cross movie next month. Hey I also wanted to say that I'm a big fan of house of Payne & wish you would bring the show back. It's not really a lot of Tv Shows with substance & Value or relatable. I could really relate to that show & I liked how the characters evolved especially Curtis who is an amazing talent I hope u continue to use that cat in your future Projects. My last comment is about your other show For Better or worse. I was actually more in the show when you aired the first 10 episodes & it didn't have a laugh track. I feel that this show uses the laugh track to much like every 5 seconds is a bit much, & it also insults the intelligence of your audience trying to guide us when to laugh when certain things arent funny. But keep up the good work man

    Hello and THANK you so much for your email to me today! It described how this past summer was your 1st break in a LONG LONG time! Much needed for yourself TP! I am SO glad you had your much needed break, and also I am so thankful and humbled by your email this afternoon! Thank you! I went tonight and bought some of your other movies (I already have a lot) but there were some at my local Wal-Mart for sale-and it was affordable and your work and movies (and MADEA) always put me on a higher "plane" and "higher level" and to a better place.....so I not only bought "entertainment" but an investment in MYSELF! Thank you for your work...your work was blessed by GOD because your work helps other human beings. It's difficult to know all of us out here but know that you have helped myself and countless thousands of others. You give us a laugh, a smile, a good cry and when faced with the unbelievable (death in the family, cancer, horrific economical obstacles-that YOU at one time faced yourself) we can overcome all of it - just by watching some of your movies-and I will also be blessed to see you live and in person in South Carolina SOON-thank you for the energy to perform here once again-I appreciate it along with your other fans! Thank you and GOD bless you always & in ALL ways TP! Love from your new friend, Teresa Hooker in SC ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Tyler, you are so funny...Sometimes I wonder are you really that funny in person. Hmmmm....Lord Willing I'll soon see. Yes it does get better with age. Happy early birthday to you. You'll do just fine adjusting going back to work. It's what you do. Did you receive my pre-pitch? Jennifer. Detour Project is not your typical everyday project. It's a once in a lifetime project that is God Sent.

    Hey Tyler it's me again sorry i didn't get the chance when u were oline but nevertheless i really do hope uu see the message n soon. My mom was sent to Jamaica by the Lord after studying theology for about 7yrs wonderful woman of God n she is in need of some money to start with. She as already found the peice of land which belonged to the family. She has already clear the ground of whatevr trees are not needed and planning now to take some money from her account to start the building. In my other messages i ask that u contact ms winfrey on her behalf for a donation and this message is no different. Please do all that u can as souls are dependent on us to bring the gosple to them n in the words of the late Jim Reeves May the good Lord bless n keep u wether near or far away till we meet.

    Hi Tyler, Happy Birthday in advance, may God bless you even the more on your special day. I just wanted to say well deserved vacation for all your hard work in entertaining others. I know it must be God that keeps you going, especially when you are a part of so many things.. I saw the news yesterday and what you did for the young lady who had her van stolen. I am so proud to see that you still are living out the word, "give and it shall be given, pressed down, shaken together and running over." Many can see that is your testimony. You are a Blessed man of God, just keep doing you and God will continue to Bless.
