Tim Allen Arrest Records
Tim Allen, whose real name is Timothy Allen Dick, was born in 1953. He is an American actor and a comedian, known for playing the memorable role of Tim "The Toolman" Taylor in the ABC television series Home Improvement. This was on the air from 1991-1999. He was born in Denver, Colorado, to Martha and Gerald Dick. His father was a real estate agent.
He is one of six children. In 1911, Gerald Dick died in a car crash when Allen was only 11 years old. A couple of years later, his mother married a business executive and shifted with her children, to Michigan.
Allen went to school in Birmingham, Michigan, and there, he was involved in theater and music. This encouraged his infatuation with classical piano. He graduated from the University of Western Michigan in 1998, where he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in communications, with a specialization in radio and television management and production. The degree was also with a split minor in philosophy and design systems.
The same university awarded Allen an honorary degree in the field of fine arts in 1998, with the award for Distinguished Alumni. He was married in 1984, to Laura Deibel, and had a child, Katherine, born in 1989. In 1999, Allen officially separated from his wife and divorced her in 2003. In 2006, he married Jane Hadjuk, after dating for five years. Their daughter, Elizabeth, was born in 2009. Allen is a staunch Republican and supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election for president.
The year 1975 marked the beginning of Allen's career as a comedian. One of his friends dared him to take part in Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, a Detroit suburb. He began to be noticed after that and appeared in local television broadcast advertisements. He also appeared on cable comedy shows like Gary Thison's Some Semblance of Sanity.
He started acting with his starring role in the television series, Home Improvement, in 1991. It was produced for the ABC Television Network by Wind Dancer Productions, a company that Allen co-founded with another producer, Carmen Finestra.
He has starred in many films since, with big names in Hollywood, like Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, and Hector Elizondo, in great movies like Galaxy Quest, and Christmas with the Cranks, and a hit television sitcom, the Last Man Standing. He has hosted many award shows and inspired and entertained people with his endearing speeches and comedic acts.
Allen's landmark television show, Last Man Standing, was canceled by ABC, after running successfully for six seasons straight. In 2017, Channing Dungey rubbished claims of political prejudice against Allen, saying that the network couldn't fit the program into an appropriate slot. Nevertheless, Fox TV picked up the show for one more season.
Hollywood has a certain way of typecasting stars, and this went against Allen who gradually stopped getting any roles. He has mainly been a television actor, excelling in a comedic role. Another reason why Hollywood has stopped casting Allen is due to the fact that his movies haven't done all that well at the box office. Of course, his altercations with the law haven't helped either.
