I 'm Going To Take a Long Break

I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I'm working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I'm going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.

Madea Gets a Job will start the last leg of the tour on September 20th and end just before Thanksgiving 2012. It was also very important to me that the ticket price start at $25. If you have never seen me live, you have never seen me at all. I'm telling you, ask anyone who has and they will tell you. Come out and see me and bring your family. This show will have you rocking and rolling and laughing and crying and singing all the way back home. You’ll see!

    Wow. I had not been on twitter for awhile and today at this very moment decided to and with no glasses ($ tree magnifyers) My eyes widen at the words "I'm going to take a long break" Wow. Well you enjoy yourself Big Guy. haha which reminds me I seen Reginald VelJohnson on the episode of "Meet the Browns" today. Wonderful guy. I was like really. Cory's father. I laughed at brown and him the most. "You were with Madea?" haha sad face "Yeah" hah "How did she get you?" haha "She knows I like bacon. Can I have one of your hotels?" smh my jaw still hurts I laughed so hard and still can't get this grin off my face smh that was this morning. Oh how upset I was when that Miranda just left Calvin like that. smh Kind of saw it coming the way she acted when the baby was baptized and he didn't show up. I mean come on after an hour a wife should be worring about her husband and she could have called her phone for messages since it died already smh these are not even real characters and I want to just strangle her. haha That's when you know good acting is involve. haha great story telling. Guess we all should have seen it coming with the back to back to back to back Tyler through. You need your rest. Take as much time you need Big Guy. Maybe bike riding to Africa creating wells for fresh water. I seen hints of which in the movie "Good Deeds" and when Larramie Doc Shaw dated strange girl reads people and fundraising.

    Dear Tyler Even Jesus took a break. Of course he spent 40 days of challenges but he stepped outside of his normal daily activity, to get closer to God. I understand. And you will most likely not see this as you have staff read and write for you. I myself got disappointed in that non-personal touch from you. You are successful. It won't go away unless you lose touch from where it came (your success). God got you. You push too hard sometime. Do you have people around to tell you that. I hope so. There are some in this business that have been doing this for a long time. I think they forget their humble roots. I think they think they have enough cushion to believe they are covered. I think you try thinking that. But you will never forget. So yes, time off is needed, but surround yourself with the humble people. Mega rich ain't always humble. Talk to the struggling too. Talk to the villages trying to help these children be better citizens, while their rent checks are bouncing. We are still good of heart, but the struggle is never ever done. No matter who you are.
