The Open Frame Bar & Grill at Roxy Ann Lanes Presents: Dejan Tyler with Jacqui Pirl
Dejan Tyler celebrates the lower-middle class with sharp, detailed, flavorful writing. He elevates living “on the come up”, being broke, getting by, into rich, textured hilarity.
The comedian is supremely talented at evoking cultural touchstones, like fast food mystery meat or Dollar Store condoms, while remaining true to the voices and personalities that inspire him. Dejan Tyler keeps it real: real funny, real authentic, real inspired.
Filtering everything from sleep apnea to Chinese food through his personal identities “thug” and “nerd”, Dejan Tyler gives new meaning to the term “biracial”. This dual perspective, clashing yet complimentary, a mashup of distinct codes, lingo and values, frames Dejan’s wholly unique and effectively universal sense of humor. You won’t hear a more “hood” stance on magic, nor a more “geek” view on gangs than on Get Rich or Diabetes. Dejan Tyler grounds fantasy in realness, embellishes reality as fantasy, and brings high concepts down to earth for brilliant, well-crafted, relatable comedy.
