"Isn't it fascinating what we can do for a living"
Tim Tyler a visual stand-up comic actor with an incredible array of amazing skills
Born on a goldmine in Geita Tangankika, brought up in Sussex England and at 12 moved to Melbourne Australia and now living in Montreal.
Tim's childhood dream was to be a clown and not to have a Bachelor of Education in music and drama from Melbourne University.
So in 1978 he threw his degree away and started devoting himself to the development of Mr P.P. a neurotic, meticulous yet very lovable character, whose facinating career has kept Tim alive and kicking for over 35 years.
Mr P.P. worked with the Melbourne Philharmonic for 5 years, touring Australia and Asia. He also performed with the
London Philharmonic in their "Hooked on Classics" performance in Sydney and Melbourne Australia.
Tim was the Police Seargent in the Broadway version of "The Pirates of Penzance". He performed many seasons touring Australia and New Zealand. He was in the Australian tour of "H.M.S. Pinafore" as Dick Deadeye, playing with Paul Eddington as Sir Joseph Porter.
Tim was invited to be in the Australian Ballet's and the Sydney Dance company's "Tivoli show" and was in the "Pomp Duck and Circumstance's" Off Broadway New York and Atlanta seasons.
He has worked in Theatres, Variety shows, festivals and dinner shows around the world.
