TVLAND (WKZO) -- Today is Comedian Tim Allen’s birthday. The WMU alum has starred as Santa Claus, did the voice work for Buzz Lightyear, and starred on TV for years as the Cable TV handyman on his own ABC Sitcom, “Home Improvement”.
But few remember that he did time in a federal prison when he got caught with nearly a pound and a half of cocaine at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International airport.
What a comeback story. At one point in his career he simultaneously had the #1TV Show, the #1 movie and a book on the New York Times best seller list. Today Tim Allen turns 60.
