Thanks for sharing, Sheran. Sometimes, I'm not really sure who Allen is lampooning (left or right), but my hunch is that a lot of the time he tries to stick it to both sides. At least that's what comes through in some of his bits. It's probably what keeps him off the entertainment "black lists."
Here are three Tim Allen Facts that folks may not know:
*His real name is Tim Allen Dick.
*His mother was a "community service worker" (that's something like a "community organizer").
*On October 2, 1978, he was arrested at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport for possession of over 650 grams (1.43 lbs) of cocaine. He subsequently pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and provided the names of other dealers in exchange for a prison term of three to seven years instead of a possible sentence to life imprisonment.
He likes opiates also, much like Chevy Chase. We all have our demons... Doesn't make him or Chevy BAD guys. We all try in our own way to fill that hole that is inside all of us. That voice inside of us all that tells us we are not good enough or we are vacant. Everybody has that hole. Everybody.
Including me. How bout you guys?
When people become famous they can't get out and be normal anymore. Their hole is seclusion from our normal way of life. I will never be famous, like many others I find a ways to entertain myself.... I love to pull pranks on people in public that don't me!
Just out of curiosity Sheran are you saying that you never experience self doubt at times and that you are one happy camper in life 24\7 whose life is totally fulfilled?
I mean do you have those 3:00 am wakeups and can't go back to sleep no matter how hard you try and you lay there asking yourself questions you can't answer? Questions like: questions about dying, the future of your children, your financial status, having to one day put you pet to sleep, your health and weight, what would you do if you lost your spouse?
Notice I didn't sully this inquiry with political questions, but kept it clean with Life everyday life questions.
Just please do not tell me you lay there at 3:00 am in the morning plotting pranks.
Jimmy, we've all at some point have had nights where we can't sleep for what ever reason. Pranks on the other hand are "Spontaneous".☺
I enjoy pranks myself. Quite good at I might say. I think by virtue of the gap between our ages prevents a mutual understanding of what I am trying to get at.
