‘Last Man Standing’ Star Tim Allen Reveals ‘Another Reason’ Why He Loves Being Stand Up Comic With Famous Quote

by Thad Mitchell

With a little extra time on his hands these days, legendary actor and comedian Tim Allen is returning to the standup comedy circuit.

For the first time in a long time, Tim Allen isn’t in the process of filming a television show or movie. His hit sitcom series “Last Man Standing” came to a conclusion earlier this year in May. The popular comedy show went on for nine seasons before finally saying goodbye a short time ago.

His latest project “Assembly Required” also came to an end earlier this year. The series reunites Tim Alen with his former “Home Improvement” co-star Richard Karn. The show has yet to be renewed for a second season by the History Channel but very well could be in the future.

So, with no show currently going on, Tim Allen is taking some time for himself before the next project arises. For Allen, that means ample time to work on growing his already impressive classic car collection. He has nicknamed his current project the “Vik” as he is restoring a class Crown Victoria vehicle. His spare time also means a return to the standup comedy routine circuit to the delight of his fans. One of the most popular standup comedians of all time, Tim Allen is sure to draw sold-out venues during his stage appearances. On Tuesday, he took to social media to share some thoughts on why he loves doing standup comedy.

Tim Allen Quotes Famous Philosopher in Tweet

“Another reason I love being a standup comic,” he says to begin the post. He also quotes Austrian-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein in his tweet.

“A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes,” the quote from the philosopher says.

While it is unlikely that Tim Allen will be bringing philosophical insight to his standup routines, he’s got the jokes for sure.

Fans of the legendary funnyman are certainly happy with his return to standup comedy. In a social media post from earlier this week, Allen says he hasn’t been on stage in over a year. As did with many acts, the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to live performances around the world.

Many comedians, musical artists and other acts greatly suffered because of the restrictions in place. With coronavirus infection rates on the decline, artists are once again taking the stage to large crowds. Many of these acts, Tim Allen included, a very thankful that pandemic mandates such as mask-wearing and social distancing are beginning to ease.

Tim Allen began his career in comedy with humble beginnings as he worked the comedy club scene as a standup. His career blossomed when he starred as Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor on “Home Improvement.”

His career took off even more when he played a reluctant Santa Claus in “The Santa Clause.”
