PERRY SURPRISES HEALTH WORKERS

A few weeks ago, Perry surprised frontline healthcare workers amid the coronavirus pandemic by joining their video call on “Good Morning America.”

Tyler has given a helping hand to others several times before, often providing needs for calamity relief and buying items for his employees.

The director personally thanked the hospital staff and used his Madea voice to bring happiness to their hectic day.

PERRY’S SHOWS CONTINUE

Perry learned to adapt to the pandemic and have his shows push through despite the circumstances, including “The Oval,” which recently wrapped up filming.

Although he experienced no issues with the virus, it cost the creator to shell out an additional $4.5 million per show to cater to his 377 cast and crew members.

His expenses cover housing, food, and testing. Although it is quite costly, Perry hopes to keep employment for his team members amid this trying time.

TYLER’S GOOD DEED

Tyler recently showed kindness towards 42 employees in an Atlanta restaurant. As the coronavirus pandemic was on the rise, he left a $21,000 tip on top of his bill.

The director’s generous act allowed each employee to walk home with $500, providing essential needs to their family.
