When I'm Stupid, I'm Stupid

As I was reading Newsweek, I came across a graphic posting Billboard's Top DVD Rentals. Of note: #2 Tyler Perry: Madea's Family Reunion #4 Tyler Perry: Madea Goes to Jail #7 Tyler Perry: Why Did I Get Married? Boy, I feel dumb. I had never heard of Tyler Perry. I looked him up on Wikipedia and it still doesn't help. Am I missing something?

Nope, you're not missing anything except the money you shovel out for NEWSWEEK.

Barry, this man is so funny! I don't laugh at most of those stupid/corny movies and I actually paid to go see these in the theater. I laughed so hard I cried.

Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion were so funny. Tyler Perry plays multiple characters in these movies...they are funny yet have a serious side also. When you see Diary of a Mad Black Woman, you will catch yourself saying "You're crazy, crazy as hell"...in THAT voice he does as Madea...good stuff!

Tyler Perry was homeless and living in his car when he got the opportunity to do these movies and now he is probably worth millions...He is so funny.

I never heard of him until I heard a story on NPR. I think white people (such as myself) don't know about him because his movies (and plays)are very narrowly focused to a black audience. However, I think they should be marketed more broadly because he is f'ing hilarious.
