Damn Tyler Perry is killin it, talk about from nothing to something.

Perry moved to Atlanta in 1992, and worked in a restaurant and as a used car salesman. He managed to save up $12,000 to stage his first play. It was not a success and over the next six years he struggled living in Atlanta, but persevered until the play finally had a successful run in 1998, first at the House of Blues, also known as the Tabernacle, located near the CNN Center and the Georgia Aquarium, and later at the Fox Theatre. His following play, a staging of Bishop T. D. Jakes’s book Woman Thou Art Loosed, was an immediate hit, grossing over $5 million in five months. A film version was later created starring Kimberly Elise and Loretta Devine, and was released in theaters in September 2004.
