Tiger Tyson (born May 20, 1977) is an American gay pornographic film actor, model, and gay porn film director. He is noted for his appearances in ethnic-themed porn films, where he performs regularly as a top. He has also worked as a male escort and gogo dancer, and appears frequently in gay-themed publications. Tyson, who is of African American and Puerto Rican descent, is renowned for his large endowment and aggressive sexual style on camera.
Tyson began a career in pornography at age 19 after serving fourteen months in prison for grand theft auto. Recruited by a friend and fellow dancer at a gay club, Tyson was introduced in the 1997 film Sweatin' Black with director Enrique Cruz. Shortly thereafter Tyson starred in his breakthrough film, Tiger's Brooklyn Tails. After serving a stint as an actor for Latino Fan Club, Tyson left the porn industry in 1999, but quickly returned in 2000 to form his own production company, Tiger Tyson Productions. He announced his retirement in 2004, but again changed his mind after the success of Take 'Em Down.
Tyson was a co-founder of Pitbull Productions in 2003, and has been its headlining star ever since. To date, Tyson has appeared in over two dozen pornographic films, and directed several others. He was inducted into the GayVN Hall of Fame in February 2008.
