Tim Allen continues to perform stand-up shows to sold-out crowds across the country. He honed his talents as a stand-up comic throughout the eighties, providing the perfect lead-in to his highly successful ABC television series Home Improvement where he garnered a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy nomination and was honored with the People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Male Performer in a Television Series” for an unprecedented eight years in a row.
During Home Improvement’s run at the top of the prime-time charts, Tim revisited his comedy roots with a successful national concert tour. He also found time to pen his first book about the male perspective, Don’t Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, topping the New York Times Bestseller List. This was followed by his second bestseller I’m Not Really Here focusing on midlife, family and quantum physics.
In 1999, during the final season of Home Improvement, Tim was honored with the TV Guide Award for “Favorite Actor in a Comedy Series.” In a tearful farewell, Tim hung up his tool belt, shifting his film career into high gear with resounding success.
He most recently starred on the hit sitcom Last Man Standing which aired its ninth and final season on FOX in 2021. He starred as Mike Baxter, a happily married father of three daughters, who finds himself the odd man out as he tries to maintain his manliness in a home dominated by women.
He made his film debut in 1994, playing a holiday icon in The Santa Clause, earning him another People’s Choice Award. In 1995, he voiced the beloved, yet deluded, space ranger Buzz Lightyear in the CGI smash hit Toy Story.
In 1997, Allen starred in the hit comedies Jungle 2 Jungle and For Richer or Poorer. To the delight of moviegoers, in 1999 Tim reprised his character Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 2, which grossed over $250 million. This was followed by the hit film Galaxy Quest. Representing the ‘average Joe,’ Tim starred in Joe Somebody, and in 2001 he starred in the comedy Big Trouble. In 2002, Tim took on the role of Critical Jim in Who Is Cletis Tout?, and he helped kick off the holiday season that year reprising his role in The Santa Clause 2. In 2004, he starred opposite Jamie Lee Curtis in the comedy Christmas with the Kranks.
Allen reprised his role as Buzz Lightyear in 2010, in the Academy Award-winning film Toy Story 3 and again for Disney’s Oscar-winning Toy Story 4 with Tom Hanks, Keanu Reeves, Tony Hale, Annie Potts, Christina Hendricks and Keegan-Michael Key. The film opened #1 at the box office and has grossed over $1 billion worldwide.
In 2006, Allen starred in The Santa Clause 3, in which he once again reprised his role as Santa Claus. That same year he starred in the comedy Zoom and in the updated version of the Disney classic The Shaggy Dog. In 2007, he starred opposite John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy in the hit comedy Wild Hogs. In 2008 Allen starred in the drama Redbelt.
Last year, Tim was seen starring in and executive-producing, the Disney+ limited series The Santa Clauses reprising his role as Scott Calvin/Santa. On the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever, he set out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in life south of the pole. The series also co-starred Elizabeth Mitchell, Kal Penn, Laura San Giacomo, Elizabeth Allen-Dick and David Krumholtz
