'''Tyler Perry''' (born Emmitt Perry, Jr. on September 13, 1969) is a mega-successful writer/director/producer/actor whose film ''Diary of a Mad Black Woman'' shocked mainstream box office watchers by opening at #1. It was perhaps less of a surprise to his African American fanbase, who are familiar with his popular stage plays (from which ''Mad Black Woman'' and several other of his subsequent films were adapted), as the demographic for his films centers on black America.

* InfantImmortality: [[spoiler: averted in ''For Colored Girls'']]
* JerkAss: Madea is quite possibly the biggest asshole as of late on the big screen or theatre. Granted, she does have her JerkWithAHeartOfGold moments, but even then....
** She's also a serious KarmaHoudini. In anything resembling the real world she would have been in jail years ago. In the films when she actually does go to jail she not only gets out early on a technicality, but she becomes a media darling used as an example of how corrupted the legal system has become.
* KarmaHoudini: Madea, as mentioned directly above.
** A more obvious version would be Mike from ''Why Did I Get Married?'' He verbally abuses, belittles and cheats on his obese wife, Shelia, spills the delicate secrets of his friends and their wives (and in the process, creates problems within the marriages), leaves said wife high and dry, is essentially a boorish, self-important JerkAss...and is still accepted into their inner circle (and with his male friends, almost like nothing ever happened!) He finally receives karma (of sorts) in ''Why Did I Get Married, Too?'', but even then, it's considered [[DisproportionateRetribution unfitting.]]
* {{Melodrama}}: Chock-full of it.

* TeamMom / TeamDad: Madea always serves as these in both the films and plays.
* ThrowItIn: Not sure if this still goes on, but in his early days of nothing but stage plays, a lot of the lines/interaction of the characters was obviously improv and was subject to change based on the city of the performance.

->''"The typical [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Winston Jerome]] story starts with a beautiful, educated, professional black woman trapped in a troubled marriage with the brown-skinned bald dude from [[Series/LawAndOrder Law & Order]]. Then, a dude who looks like Shemar Moore shows up as the shirtless, [[ButNotTooBlack light-skinned]] gardener who just got out of jail. At first she acts like she doesn't like the light-skinned gardener, but eventually gets to know him and sees his sensitive side. Being a good Christian woman, she gives her marriage one last chance because Jesus said so. Just when the brown-skinned dude from Law & Order is about to hit her, here comes the shirtless gardener. The woman and the gardener kiss, having found true love through Jesus."''
