About Taylor Williamson

Hi, my name is Taylor. I'm a comedian. Please, read about me. I started performing stand-up comedy when I was 17 in San Diego, CA. A year later, I moved to Los Angeles to attend college. Though I was only a few years away from a degree, with a hundred credits to go, I decided to put my education on hold to focus on a career that allows me to sleep past noon. Much to my family's surprise, things have worked out.

In 2006 New York Magazine called me a "Name to Watch" and a "nineteen-year-old cerebral wit." I looked up the definition of "cerebral" and was very flattered. Later that year I performed at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. Variety Magazine called me a "20-year-old Californian." That really meant a lot. The Montreal Gazette said I was a "twenty-year-old with nerdy delivery." I really don't know how I stay so humble. They rated my performance 7/10 stars, which is actually a 9.5/10 when converted to the American comedy rating system.

Hi, my name is Taylor. I'm a comedian. Please, read about me. I started performing stand-up comedy when I was 17 in San Diego, CA. A year later, I moved to Los Angeles to attend college.

In 2006 New York Magazine called me a "Name to Watch" and a "nineteen-year-old cerebral wit." I looked up the definition of "cerebral" and was very flattered. Later that year I performed at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. Variety Magazine called me a "20-year-old Californian." That really meant a lot. The Montreal Gazette said I was a "twenty-year-old with nerdy delivery." I really don't know how I stay so humble. They rated my performance 7/10 stars, which is actually a 9.5/10 when converted to the American comedy rating system.

In 2007, I made two appearances on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." After my network TV debut was posted on Youtube, I learned that I am gay and not funny. My performances at three NACA conventions have led to me being misquoted in college newspapers across the country and reviewed by more comedy experts. The comedy director at a West Virginia university said, "Taylor's quirky, off-beat delivery was off-putting to some students. Others thought it was 'funny' and 'cute.'" So if you come see me live, be careful. I might make you laugh, or extremely confused. Those are two definite possibilities.

I moved to New York City in 2007 and made perhaps the first ever stand-up comedy performance on MTV's "TRL," appearing on the same episode as New Kids on The Block. This was obviously a lifelong dream of mine. The show was cancelled two weeks later. Comedy Central thinks I'm funny enough to be on their new season of "Live at Gotham." My grandma is thrilled for me to be on another TV show she's never heard of. Trust me, Nana, it's a good one.

I now live back in beautiful Los Angeles and have lots of exciting things coming up in the next 10 years. This includes appearances on David Letterman, an HBO special, a sitcom on the Disney channel, two failed marriages, a few stints in rehab and a starring role in the 15th season of "The Surreal Life."
