Tyree was also a Writer for The Conners (ABC) and The Last OG (TBS). In addition, she has performed live stand up all over the country, from colleges and churches to some of the most famous clubs in her hometown of LA, such as The Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and Hollywood Improv. And most recently, Tyree performed in the 2019 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival's New Faces showcase in Montreal and Warner Media's Comedy Showcase in 2021.

In March 2016, Tyree created a social media video series called "Women Over 40 Be Like," "Women Over 30 Be Like" etc, that humorously depict the things women say during specific ages. In addition, two articles were written up about Tyree's video series, including one in The New York Times. Tyree recently produced, directed, and wrote a very popular webseries called "Dirty 30s" based on these videos- all 7 episodes are available on YouTube, Facebook, IGTV, and this site under the "videos" tab.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Tyree is fast becoming one of today's most visible up-and-coming performers. Her very first time on stage was in August of 2008 at J Anthony Brown's JSpot Comedy Club in Inglewood, CA. Although she performed on a dare that night, Tyree soon found that comedy was something she did well. Helping people laugh gave (and still does give) Tyree an indescribable feeling of humanity. She believes that humans need to laugh just as much as they need to eat and breathe.
