The New York Times described "West is tireless... and manages to always be in the moment, reacting to whatever everybody around him is doing without coming across as obnoxious."
Tyler is a New York City-based artist and performer. He is originally from Tucson, Arizona where he graduated from The University of Arizona with a B.F.A. in Acting.
Inspiration to become a professional clown happened when he saw a Cirque Du Soleil show in 7th grade. After he would research clowns on Youtube and practice by making funny faces at himself in the mirror. Since then he has studied under clown mentors like Philippe Gaulier, Aitor Basauri, David Shiner, Stefan Haves, Amy G, Julia Proctor, Eric Davis & Sophie Amieva.
His solo show "The Wait" has toured many festivals and won several awards like "Best Story Telling" (London Fringe) & "Staff Pick Award" (Minnesota Fringe).
There are no limits to all the things Tyler can do. He has traveled the world performing, hosting and creating material that has entertained countless audiences.
