Get Rich or Diabetes, comedian Dejan Tyler’s debut album, gives snapshots of real life, for real people, rendered in ridiculous scenarios. Dejan 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. Get Rich or Diabetes is an unflinching, unassuming, and unrelenting good time.
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.
About Dejan Tyler:
Hailing from Sacramento CA, D. Tyler has a style that is unique and refreshing. As a comedian he blurs the line between reality and absurdity with ease while remaining hilarious. He is as comfortable performing in a theatre as he is in a club, bar or a living room (yes he has performed in a living room before). He keeps the crowds laughing while asking the difficult questions like “Can you eat tacos with no thumbs?” or “What if squirrels had the internet?”
Don’t be left in the dark with unanswered questions! Check him out…. seriously this guy is hilarious and only he can answer those questions.
