Comedian Tim Allen will perform live at KeyBank State Theatre on September 30 at 7:00 PM.

The acclaimed actor and comedian, Tim Allen, continues to captivate audiences with his stand-up performances, consistently selling out venues across the nation. His journey as a stand-up comedian in the 1980s served as the ideal precursor to his iconic ABC television series, “Home Improvement,” which earned him accolades including a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy nomination, and an impressive eight People’s Choice Awards.

Currently, Allen graces our screens as the star of the Disney+ series “The Santa Clauses” and previously delighted fans for nine seasons in the hit FOX sitcom “Last Man Standing.” He also lent his voice to the beloved character Buzz Lightyear in Disney’s blockbuster “Toy Story” franchise and showcased his acting prowess in notable films such as “Galaxy Quest,” “Wild Hogs,” “Jungle 2 Jungle,” and “The Shaggy Dog,” to name just a few.

Browns vs. Ravens – Browns Stadium

In Cleveland, the love for sports is undeniable, but it’s football that reigns supreme. Through the Browns’ long history of hardship, marked by scant star power and tight budgets, the unwavering dedication of the fans has shone through. Win or lose, whether the weather is clear or a fierce blizzard is raging, Cleveland faithful assemble, decked out in the iconic orange and brown, ready to cheer their hearts out. This unwavering support persists.

And this Sunday, when the Browns face off against the Baltimore Ravens, the stakes are higher than ever. This game isn’t just a regular match; it’s a crucial battle for supremacy in our division, a chance to prove our mettle against a formidable opponent. In the heart of Cleveland, we understand that this game is more than just a contest—it’s a testament to our dedication, a showcase of our passion, and a moment when we stand together as one to support our beloved team.
