Tim Tyler (The Sergeant) was born in Geita, a
place you've probably never heard of, and he is still not sure where to die. We
are all born and we all die, it's what we do in between that is the 'big
question'. Tim is best known for his comic creation of Mr PP and not for his
Bachelor of Education. Ever since the age of six he wanted to be a clown and Mr
PP is that dream come true. Mr PP arrived in 1979 and has taken him to all
sorts of places all over the world. Tim was the Police Sergeant in the Victoria
State Opera/AETT production of The Pirates of Penzance in 1986. He also
toured New Zealand playing the same role in 1986. In 1987 he was Dick Deadeye in the
Victoria State Opera production of HMS Pinafore.
Australian experience includes guest appearances at Brisbane's Expo '88, the
Brisbane Comedy Bonanza '91, the Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra ( in
Australia and Indonesia) and the London Philharmonic Concerts. Mr Tyler has
also provided support for John Cougar Mellencamp, John Denver, Eartha Kitt and
Alexei Sayle. Tim has most recently been working in Europe and USA as Mr PP. and now splits his time between Australia and Montreal with his wife and young child.
