“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw
Keith Addison Tyler is a creative writer whose client list includes Warner Bros. Entertainment, Fox Entertainment Group, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios-Hollywood, and Knotts Berry Farm.
His entertainment career began in the music industry. A published composer at age 16, Keith paid for college tuition (CSULA & UCLA) with his music royalties and by working as a music director-arranger on a nightly, live, worldwide telecast at Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
Keith also directed and arranged music for various gospel recording artists, Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker’s PTL Club, The Bird Cage Theatre-Knotts Berry Farm, and The Comedy Store-Hollywood.
He has performed stand-up comedy at several Los Angeles-area venues and has served as a host/emcee to many shows and special events across the USA.
Among his professional ventures, Keith was a backup singer for Dinah Shore, an opening speaker for First Lady Barbara Bush, and a featured solo pianist at Carnegie Hall.
An advocate for male survivors of sexual abuse and those who would support them, Keith volunteers as a facilitator of a men’s support group and is a member of the speaker’s bureau of RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network).
In an effort to encourage others and educate the public, Keith began taking his personal survivor story to the stand-up comedy stage in 2016 with narratives of his own “adventures” with PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms. Entertainment pros and audiences immediately began urging Keith to develop his stand-up act into a full stage show.
In response, Keith’s one-man show, Trying to Be Normal is Driving Me CraZy! is scheduled to premiere Fall 2019 under the direction of Mark Millhone.
