Keith Addison Tyler is a creative writer and music director whose client list includes Warner Bros. Entertainment, Fox Entertainment Group, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios-Hollywood and Knotts Berry Farm.
Keith’s career began early in the music industry. Keith worked his way through undergraduate studies at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) and postgraduate studies at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as the music director-arranger on a nightly, worldwide, live, telecast.
Among his more unusual vocational ventures, Keith was a backup ensemble singer for Dinah Shore, an opening speaker for then First Lady Barbara Bush, and a featured solo pianist at Carnegie Hall, and has emceed countless concerts, shows and special events.
An advocate for male survivors of sexual abuse and those who would support them, Keith serves as a facilitator of the men’s support group “Los Angeles Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse” and as a member of the speaker’s bureau of RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network).
In an effort to encourage other survivors and to educate the public about PTSD, Keith began bringing humorous narratives of his “crazy adventures” to the stand-up comedy stage in 2016, performing at several notable Los Angeles-area venues. Industry pros and audience members persuaded Keith to develop his stand-up act into a full stage show.
Keith’s one-man show, Trying to Be Normal is Driving Me CraZy! directed by Mark Millhone, was scheduled to premiere June 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show is now in development as a film project.
