Mark your calendar: Tyler Perry 

That Tyler Perry sure is ubiquitous.

The playwright, actor and filmmaker is taking his No. 1 character, the irrepressible Madea, back on tour. Perry's latest stage play, Madea Gets a Job, is hitting the road (with Perry himself in the lead role) and will visit the Johnny Mercer Theatre Nov. 4. Ticket information will be released soon.

The cast also includes Patrice Lovely, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, Chandra Currelly, Tony Grant, Danny Clay and Melonie Daniels.
