Before Tim Allen changed his name, it use to be Timothy Allen Dick. He was born in Colorado on June 13,1953. He has 6 brothers. When his family moved to Detroit Michigan suburb of Brimingham he was only 13 years old.

His favorite subject in high school was the shop. He was the class clown. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 1975 with a degree in Television production.

In 1978 Tim spent 2 years in jail because of dealing drugs. When Tim was released he had a new outlook on life. In 1979 Tim started a stand up comedy career at the Comedy Castle in Detroit (from a friends dare). He has been selling out concert engagements all over the USA. He has been on some cable shows shows such as "Tim Allen: Men are Pigs", "Just for Laughs", "Comedy Club All Stars 2" and "Comedy All Stars 7".

Tim's movie carrer basicly started when he did the Disney film called "The Santa Clause." He played a role of Scott Calvin/Santa Clause. During christmas Scott takes care of his son. Late at night nobody but Santa Clause falls on there roof. Tim does not know but by putting on the suite he agrees to the "Santa Clause". Since he is the new Santa Clause he has a big belly, a long beard and white hair.

In his next film he did "Toy Story" (a Disney and pixar computer animation joint projet). Tim plays the voice of the greatest space action figure, Buzz Lightyear, who is new to Andy's toyroom. Andy's favorite toy Woody (Tom Hanks) gets jealous and in a fight with Buzz Lightyear gets them both knocked out of the window. The two of them now have to put there differences behind them and work together to get back to Andy's Room. They face many challenges especially Andy's neighbor who destorys toys. Toy Story was the first movie to ever be entirely animated on computers.

Tim started working on "Jungle to Jungle" during the summer of 1996. They started shooting in Venezuela and then move to New York where it finished shooting on July 15. Tim playes a character named "Micheal Cromwell". After all the work on the stock-exchange floor you would think the overworked Micheal Cromwell would be perpared for Mimi-Siku, the son he never knew he had.

Tim started his first book called, "Don't Stand to Close to a Naked Man". This book explains why men are different from women.(this book gives helpfull hints on how to deal with the opposite sex...) Tim wonders into the mysteries of the sexes. Also talking about his life and the twists of fate that landed him both a prison term and the succesful comedy carrer.

These are a few quotes from Tim: "Men look at women the way men look at cars. Everyone looks at Ferraris. Now and then we like a pickup truck, and we end up with station wagons."

"Everyone plays golf now, which is a lot like going to a strip club. You get all charged up, pay big money to hang out on a beautiful course, and start driking early. Eighteen holes later you're plastered and frustrated and most of your balls are missing."

"I'm not really here" (his second book) *****MORE INFO ON HIS BOOK COMING SOON*******

Tim Taylor, man of the house, master of the garage. Tim and his wife Jill have three sons who are more than a handful. Sometimes it seems he has a hard time remembering he's a parent, and not the oldest brother. Example: Randy, the middle son, destroys his new bicycle by jumping off a five foot ramp he and some friends built. Randy explains he was challenged and had to do it. While Jill is yelling at him and thinking of how he should be punished, Tim's first thought is, "how high and far did you go?!!!" Tim Taylor: father. Thankfully Jill is there to keep him in line. He should also be thankful for his two friends Wilson, his next door neighbor, and Al Borland. Al works for Tim on his cable tv show "Tool Time." Tim's show is about home improvement and Al is there to assist him. Good thing, seems Tim is usually having too much fun and constantly goofing off which usually leeds to alot of accidents on the show. He also likes to add "more power" to his home appliances; this also usually ends up with someone going to the hospital! Although he sometimes has trouble understanding his wife and sons, he usually finds the right thing to do or say. After all, Tim loves his tools and his cars...but he love his family and friends just as much. (Well....almost.)

**Home Improvement is an very houmorous show which is on at Tuesdays on ABC.**

His blood-alcohol level was 0.15, well over the 0.10 legal alcohol limit in his native Michigan For a more in depth article and information on his court hearing, read the article Still, the need for speed is not a new thing for Tim. He has always been a big fan of Motor Racing. He is an especially big fan of Indy Racing. Tim says:- "It is great to be there, going so fast, all you care about is getting round that next corner, shoving on the gas, getting round the next corner. Nothing else really matters at that point" Tim also proves that he's a real "car guy" with Tim Allen/Saleen RRRRacing, his very own racing team. He has taken part in many competitions over the last few years. After a recent racing accident, however, Tim admits he is now going for a little less racing power. He will still, however, continue to race.

Now Tim lives with his wife and daughter in one of their two homes. They are in the Los Angeles area and Detroit.
