Childhood & Early Life

Tim Allen was born on June 13, 1953 in Colorado to Gerald and Martha. His father was a real estate agent while his mother was a community service worker. Allen was fond of his father and still remembers him for his great sense of humor.

When Allen was only 11, his father died in a car accident, which left him devastated. His mother got married to her friend, two years after his father’s death. He had to move with his family to Birmingham, Michigan.

He went to the Ernest W. Seaholm High School in Birmingham and it was here that he explored his penchant for acting for the first time. He then attended the Central Michigan University, later transferring to Western Michigan University.

Allen was a troubled teenager. When he finished his bachelor’s degree in television and radio production, he started making extra money by selling narcotics. He then took up a job at a sporting goods store.

Career

Allen was offered a better role at the sporting goods store—work in its in-house advertising agency and things started getting better for him but he continued to deal in narcotics. In 1978, he was arrested for possession of cocaine.

Out on bail, Allen tried his talent by trying his hand at stand-up comedy by making debut at Detroit's Comedy Castle. Right after his performance, he was taken in to testify and received 28 months in jail.

In Detroit, he started to get more recognition by appearing in local television adverts and performing in cable comedy shows like, ‘Some Semblance of Sanity’. He moved to Los Angeles and started performing at The Comedy Store.

Slowly and gradually, he started to make appearances on the late night talk shows. But fame and the conclusive success came with ‘Home Improvement (1991-1999)’.

With his solid role as Tim “The Tool-Man” Taylor in ‘Home Improvement’ on ABC, Allen started gaining more recognition in Hollywood and in 1994, he starred in the highest grossing film of the year ‘The Santa Clause’.

In 1994, Allen published his New York Times best-seller, ‘Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man’. Next year, he worked on the famous voice over work in his career—‘Buzz Lightyear’ in ‘Toy Story’.

Along with his acting career, Allen formed his own race team with Steve Saleen and race driver Bob Bondurant. He called it ‘Saleen/Allen “RRR” Speedlab. The team ran Saleen Mustangs in the SCCA World Challenge.

In 1997, he starred in ‘Jungle 2 Jungle’. Even though it was a Disney Production, it bombed at the box office. In the following year, he was again cast in ‘Toy Story 2’ as ‘Buzz Lightyear’.

In the 2000s, Allen worked in movies like, ‘Galaxy Quest (2000)’—a science fiction parody with Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, etc., ‘American Wedding (2003)’, ‘Zoom (2006)’, ‘The Santa Clause 3 (2006)’, and ‘The Shaggy Dog (2003)’.

He took over television and radio with his “Pure Michigan” commercials in 2009. He did these famous commercials for Travel Michigan agency. In the same year, he started the preview tour of his movie ‘Crazy on the Outside’.

Since 2011, Allen has starred in the ABC sitcom, ‘Last Man Standing’. He plays the role of a dad, ‘Mike Baxter’, who is struggling to establish his masculinity in the household dominated by women––his wife and three daughters.

Major Works

The most important milestone in Allen’s career has been ABC’s ‘Home Improvement’, that established him as a seasoned comedian and an actor in every household of America. The series ran for 8 years and launched his acting career.
