Taylor is a Seattle-based comic, husband, father and adult-skateboarder.
He spent the majority of his adult life living and performing in New York City, but, at his core, he was a man destined for the woods. So he is now back in the great Northwest, closer to his forest family and engulfed in all the marvelous wilderness that surrounds them.
Once upon a time, Taylor, with little experience or know-how, started a comedy show in the game room of a Brooklyn apartment building named Castlebraid. He hosted and produced a stand-up show in that same room for almost 4 years. He even produced a one-off comedy festival in the building. He went on booking stand-up shows throughout the city, in a variety of venues ranging from basements and cafes to more famous venues like the PIT and the Sheen Center.
A lot of the comics he booked are now some of the biggest names in comedy. Names like Reggie Watts, Ali Wong, Mark Normand, Rory Scovel, Michelle Wolf, Keep going? Sure, Mike Lawrence, Eric Bergstrom, The Lucas Brothers, and the list goes on. They shared a tremendous amount of knowledge with Taylor of which he did nothing with.
When Taylor's son was born he put comedy and producing shows on the backburner to focus on his family. He assured himself a career in comedy was no longer in the cards and pretty much anyone who knew him was of the same opinion. Considering his biggest accomplishments in comedy were producing free shows and picking up the ability to shamelessly name drop, it was hard to argue for staying in New York because he was "on the cusp". After all, So He packed up his family and high tailed it to Seattle.
Later that year he was asked to audition for the Seattle International Comedy Contest. He was selected to compete, made it through to the finals and finished 5th out of 32. Taylor was the only Seattle-based comic to make it to the finals in 2016.
From that point on Taylor completely dedicated to himself to doing stand up and as of now, he is making "a living" as a comic. In 2019 he performed at the world famous Laughing Skull comedy contest and will be recording his debut album with the working title "addictive tickle"
When he's not raising his son, he's either skating, writing jokes, or running around the country doing stand up. He hosts a monthly show the last Saturday of every month at Solo bar in Queene Anne. It's called XLR comedy and is already selling out almost every month. He has featured for Mark Normand, Kevin McCaffrey, Kristen Key, and many more.
Stay tuned for 2019 US tour dates, and an Album release before Christmas 2019!
