New Orleans to New York

Sesame Street to Sitcom

Tyler’s first experience on TV was playing the voice of Bobby on Little Bill, but he got his first break in acting on screen playing “Tyler” on the much-beloved children’s show Sesame Street. In 2005 he landed the role that made him a household name playing Chris in Everybody Hates Chris, a show based on the childhood of comedian Chris Rock. Tyler quickly won over audiences with his charm and natural charisma on the show and in 2007 took home the Young Artist Award for his work on the show.
