Tyler Perry Taking a Break from Touring


Between shooting two or three films a year, Tyler Perry still tours the country performing in the Madea stage plays that launched his career.

In a message on his website Tyler Perry says it's time to take a break from touring so he can focus on other projects...

Tyler writes,
I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I'm working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I'm going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.

Now if he could just take a break from Steppin' and Fetchin' the world would be a better place.

He clearly loves being in a dress and a wig. He probably dons this get-up behind closed doors. #NotBreakingNews

Yes his stage shows are better than the movies and tv shows. That's how he got famous in the first place. I went to the show in March and loved it. I liked him better when he was underground, he was funnier. Now his actors and singers seem to outshine Madea onstage. Patrice Lovely truly outshined him in this play, but I believe that's what he wants anyway, to kill off Madea and replace her with someone else.

He need to take a break from movies and tv because those are what's going to get him added to the "several seats" list.
"When trying to step out your lane of talent goes wrong"
other projects aren't for his skill set. Plays with the input of non-corny black entertainers is where he needs to return. Those movies/tv might be good for the money, but they are really destroying his name because they are coonery and these fancy actors he's hiring could give a sh*t about the quality, just cut them a check and they will shuck and jive on the big screen. Even though the plays are the same concept, seems like those castmates know how to work the script to where it's a meaningful life lesson and not a coon show, maybe those Christians in the plays care more about a message then a check and that's why the plays are 10000000 better and memorable.

That last movie where he added those corny white people was AWFUL, just AWFUL,and per usual, like Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, Tyler shucked and jived to please white people's funny bones, Tyler, Martin and Eddie build their career on edgy, realistic humor that the black audience relates to, then they crossover and it's corn and cheese jokes that just make you mad you ever supported them.
Tyler is known for putting disrespectful BLACK kids in their place in his movies, but he shucked and jived that out of the last movie and let the little bad white girl talk reckless while MADEA said nothing, but when it's a bad black kid in character Madea goes off.
What kind of example is he to the black community if he's too afraid to stay true to his life perspective when trying to cross over. Doesn't he see that in the end that phony mess didn't turn out good for Eddie and Martin, they went from black entertainment kings to b*tch please with that corny sh*t.

Whatever, it's Tyler's career to destroy.

Big SISSY.

Huh?! said...

@1:26. That's NOT TRUE! What movie were you watching? Madea does indeed teach her a lesson! I don't love everything Tyler Perry does, but at least tell the TRUTH on him.

I like Tyler Perry's work, I find it inspirational. He is trying to get many positive messages out there to people without guidance or support. Say what you want, only God's opinion matters. Words of judgement from a human are worthless.
