New Podcast with Actor/Writer Tyler Poelle!
Tyler was born and raised in Northern California. He enrolled at Occidental College as a pre-med student, but quickly learned that he wanted to be on the TV show ‘ER,’ not in an ER. Tyler corrected his course and graduated with a BFA in acting from Carnegie Mellon University, where he developed a love for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the art of Andy Warhol.
After doing classical, regional and avant-garde-downtown-super-weird theater in New York City, he moved to Los Angeles. He’s told jokes on many network multi and single camera sitcoms, he’s cried and been terrified on many network and cable dramas. He’s even made out with a bunch of folks in indie movies! One of his favorite weeks on set was working with and befriending the incomparable Betty White, a childhood hero and true genius. Having played a ‘doctor’ and getting to ‘be on a spaceship,’ the only thing left in his boyhood acting-trifecta-dream is to play a ‘cowboy.’ Yes, he can ride a horse. And no, nobody has asked... yet.
Commercially, Tyler has been seen pitching products for Liberty Mutual, Schwab, Audi, Wendy's, Dunkin' Donuts, Budweiser, AT&T, Progresso, Nature Valley, Amazon, Applebees, Yahoo, and many more. He's keeping his eyes out for a pharmaceutical company that wants someone who can tell jokes and then bring a hint of sadness. Fingers crossed.
As the proud single father to his daughter, Aurora, Tyler spends an enormous amount of time pretending to be any number of various princesses. An independent panel of scientists has agreed that Aurora is the smartest and most captivating little girl on planet Earth.
Tyler writes and records music in the band, "Petrov, the Hero," loves origami, and has a mild obsession with lemon bars. If you spend enough time with Tyler, you'll surely hear him say, "Everything will always be okay, forever." And not for nothing, it's totally true. He'll also be drinking sparkling water out of a rocks glass with a lime during that conversation.
