As one of Detroit’s most successful exports to Hollywood, Allen’s career has taken him from the garage in Home Improvement to the North Pole in The Santa Clause to infinity and beyond as Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story movies, along with many other well-known roles. He most recently starred in the hit sitcom Last Man Standing. Allen is currently on a stand-up comedy tour across the nation.
