[Blind Gossip] We recently told you about a famous male comedian who has been hiding a secret his entire career.
We have another one for you!
This man is best known as a comic actor.
Like many comic actors, he did the standup comedy club circuit and guested on late-night TV shows before making the transition to TV and movies.
We are not talking about a second banana here. Our actor is a movie star and a TV star.
While he is not physically huge, our actor is definitely a man’s man. He’s the kind of guy who would come over to your home, fix your leaky faucet and then hang out with you for a couple of beers.
And while he doesn’t have the wide range of characters that some comics do, his relatable demeanor and observational comedy have made him very successful and very rich.
He loves using that money to buy the usual rich man toys. He also apparently likes to dabble in real estate.
Approximately twenty years ago our actor was shopping for a condo in a major city.
He was especially interested in a large unit on the top floor of a luxury building.
However, there was one other party – who was a little late arriving – whose approval he needed on the unit before closing the deal.
While the real estate agent was showing our actor the property, they had to buzz up the other party.
Who was the other party?
His agent? No.
His business manager? No.
His assistant? No.
It was someone who was actually going to be living in the luxury condo with our actor.
Fortunately for our actor, the other party loved the unit and told him that they would be very happy living there.
Our star closed on the luxury condo.
That’s almost the end of our story.
Except… who was the mystery party?
Well, our star is married. But the other party wasn’t his wife.
It was his very cute, much younger boy toy.
Our actor certainly love his toys!

Tim really? no way really? wow…. gob-smacked
super sleuth says
Tim Allen fits the clues best. So I do not think that this is Billy Crystal, but I want to inform anyone who doesn’t think of Billy Crystal as a TV star that he starred in the TV show “Soap” (as one of the first openly gay characters portrayed on US television) and was a regular cast member on “Saturday Night Live” (before it was known mainly as “SNL”) long before starring in movies or hosting the Oscars.
Lol to all the Jerry Seinfeld guesses. 😂 I love Jerry, but he’s no one’s definition of a “man’s man” & I certainly don’t see him fixing his own sink, much less anyone else’s. He also isn’t known for doing movies. Most comedians in the 80s-90s did situational routines, not just Seinfeld.
It sounds so much like Tim Allen, but wow what a surprise that would be!
Probably not: Kevin Hart (his success is more recent; he would not have shopping for a luxury condo 20 years ago), Jerry Seinfeld (not a movie star), Steve Carell (didn’t do standup), Billy Crystal (not what I would call a TV star, save for hosting the Oscars, doesn’t seem really manly in the traditional sense).
Tim Allen seems like the best guess.
It sounds like Tim Allen.
The only one that fits is Jerry Seinfeld, but WOW! Shocking.
Whatever makes him happy. Seriously.

Tim Allen. Fixing leaky faucets = Home Improvement. The similar clue is a baby in Santa hat. The Santa Clause might be the only movie of his I like. It also may be the only movie of his I’ve ever seen.
Hint: Banana in the tailpipe 😄
Fix leaky sink- tool time
Toys- Toy Story
Clues are: fixing stuff – his show Home Improvement, toys – all his Christmas movies, and buzz – he voiced Buzz Lightyear.
Star: Tim Allen
Gotta admit, this one took me by surprise!
Clues: “Man toys”, “Boy toy”, “buzz up the other party”, “loves his toys”- he’s Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story.
Being a man’s man, fixing your leaky faucet- Home Improvement, which made him very rich.
Favorite movie/TV show- Toy Story. All of them except Toy Story 2.
I’m guessing Billy Crystal.
Small comedian. Started in the comedy circuits. Popular in the 80’s and 90’s.

Clues: He’s the kind of guy who would come over to your home, fix your leaky faucet
Tv show: Home Improvement
Clues – toys, he stars in toy story, he’s known for observational comedy, tv and movies, not physically huge – he’s not really tall. Kind a guy to fix a leaky faucet , his tv show home improvement he starred as Tim the tool man Taylor.
Tim the Toolman Taylor
The hints definitely seem to be pointing to Tim Allen.

I’ll go with Tim Allen.
Clues–fix faucet–Tim ‘The Toolman” Taylor character, buzz and toys–Toy Story Movie, beer–his character on “Last Man Standing” likes drinking beer.
He doesn’t have a wide range of characters–he seems to play the same character over and over.
And he is definitely rich.
Clues: fix your leaky faucet. (Home Improvement)
They had to “buzz” up the other party. (Toy Story)
I loved Home Improvement.
Deal With It says
Clues: Toys and Buzz. He voiced Buzz Light Year in Toy Story movies.
Loved him in the Toy Story movies
Man’s man, fixes things, “buzz”
Banana = grunt
Not a big build but a man’s man, Fix the faucet, and beers = tv show
Toys = big movie 1, 2, 3, and 4 sequels
I can’t say it. I just can’t type the name. It just can’t be,… no way… tell me to believe in Santa Clause… but not this actor/comedian. 😔
Star: Tom Hanks
clues – buzz, home improvement
meh, could always take him or leave him
Star: Tim Allen
Clues: “loves his toys” and “buzz up the other party”—starred in Toy Story as Buzz Lightyear, “mans man”—started as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on Home Improvement
I grew up watching Home Improvement, so that’s my default fav work of his
Clues, “observational”. Comedy. And he likes his toys-dozens of expensive automobiles.
Optional: clues also fit jay leno
mans/man, fix faucet, drink beers – Home Improvement
“buzz” up the boy toy – Buzz Lightyear
I’m getting Tim Allenish vibes for the clues, but I’ve never picked up on any other “vibes” in any of his appearances or work. 🤷🏻♀️
All clues point to Tim Allen. Home Improvement, Buzz for Buzz Lightyear, toys for Toy Story. Wow. Well, hey, as long as he is happy what do I care?
Clues: leaky faucet.
Buzz – toy story
Not physically huge….
Doesn’t have a large range of characters ….,he play the same character over and over…
Just a guess…..
Played Tim “The tool man Taylor”
And Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story
Fix your leaky faucet= Home Improvement tv show
Boy toy/ end of story = Toy Story
Buzz up the other party= Allen’s character Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story
“Buzz” as in Buzz Lightyear, he started as a stand-up comic then moved to TV and movies.
Actor: Woody Harrelson
This has got to be Tim Allen. A manly man who can fix things relates to his “Men Are Pigs” stand-up routines and the TV show Home Improvement. He likes his toys = Toy Story, plus the fact that he collects muscle cars and hot rods
Clue. Repair sinks
Carnac The Magnificent says
Star: Tim Allen
Clues: ‘Man’s man’ (his comic persona), fix the leaky faucet (Tool Time), ‘loves his toys’ (Toy Story movies)
That one would be a big surprise for me. Didn’t see that one coming at all.
That was an accurate description of his career (minus the jail time) The references to fixing a leaky faucet are because of his time on Home Improvement.
All the ‘toy’ references are because of his role on Toy Story. As is the ‘buzz him in’ bit – he played Buzz Lightyear.
Star: Tim Allen
Clue: “He’s the kind of guy who would come over to your home, fix your leaky faucet and then hang out with you for a couple of beers”. Home Improvement
Huh… this is a surprise.
Tim Allen. This is surprising to me. TOY/STORY/HANDY/
Tim Allen—Fix it, and hang out “Home Improvement”. Loves his toys “Toy Story”. Man’s Man “Last Man Standing,”
My favorite is his movie “Galaxy Quest”
for some reason, steve carrell comes to mind. the toys reference could be a nod to his characters toy collection in 40 year old virgin
