Friends Ask Dub: "What's The Deal With Tyler Perry?"



First and foremost, I'm a hater. I've gotten the invite to the Playa Hater's Ball the past 10 years, but declined because I'm too much of a hater to go. That said, this motherfucker is worth $350 million dollars. Granted, I am definitely happy to see a black guy killin' it quite like he is, but I sure as hell wish I had Scrooge McDuck money.

To answer your question friend, I have no fucking idea. My mom is to Tyler Perry, what 13 year old girls are to Justin Bieber. Dude can take a shit on a pastel and my mom will pay thousands of dollars for it and hang it up in the living room. Straight up lost her. To prove it wasn't hereditary, I checked in with my dad to get his opinion on the matter and his response: "Didn't 'Mrs. Doubtfire', 'Big Mama's House', and 'Big Mama's House 2' already happen?" My thoughts exactly. I guess Tyler Perry REALLY dove into cross-dressing and absolutely killed it in that movie. Must have method-acted his dick off...literally. Tucked back, sitting-down-peeing like a boss all during shooting. That has to be it, right?

Still, 350 mil is a stupid amount of money. You don't get that from putting out three consecutive #1-in-sales-cross-dressing-movies. You have to attack the black sitcom audience. The black sitcom has essentially been dead ever since Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, and the Wayan's Bros wanted to make some legitimate money. Perry saw an opening and created two of the worst television programs of all time because he knew there was a void to fill. If you had the unfortunate pleasure of being unable to find the remote before "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns", you know exactly what I'm talking about. Insert a laugh track, a middle-class black nuclear family, random white neighbors, a BBQ grill, black social issues, and you have those two shows. I've accidentally watched the first 2 minutes of so many episodes, I know virtually the entire plot. It's crass, corny, and borderline offensive regardless of your race. Pure genius on Perry's part. If there's no competition, just keep throwing out a shit product.

If there were no other blogs on the internet, Working Man's Diary would essentially be pictures of hot girls rated on a scale on 1-10. That's it. Just a picture and a number. Tyler Perry, is more or less doing his own version of putting up a picture and a number. I hate/respect this dude big time.
