Hi, my name is Taylor Williamson. I’m a comedian. I was born June 15, 1986 in San Diego. I started performing standup
comedy when I was seventeen-years-old during my senior year of high school. I moved to Los Angeles a year later to
pursue my comedy career and not attend classes at CSU Northridge; unless you ask my parents...
regularly at many of the top clubs in Los Angeles, including the Comedy & Magic Club and Hollywood Improv.
Budd Friedman saw me perform just a week before my nineteenth birthday, asked me 'What kind of name is Williamson for
a Jewboy?', and then booked me at his clubs in Reno and Las Vegas. (Being Jewish helps in this business).
In July 2006, I performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal as part of their New Faces showcase.
Daily Variety called me a '20-year-old Californian' while commenting on how I was garnering interest from the industry.
The Montreal Gazette called me a 'twenty-year-old with nerdy delivery' and rated my performance 7/10 stars.
For the record, that is an A+ when converted to the American comedy rating system. I hope no one ever figures out
that I'm actually 35-years-old...
Not only have I appeared in magazines, but I’ve also been on TV!
(This officially makes me better than you). I performed in hilarious sketches for the hit show 'The Daily Habit'
on Fuel TV. My grandma loves that program.
I travel all around the country and have opened for some of
my favorite comedians, including Todd Glass and Robert Schimmel. I have a lot of exciting things coming up in
the next ten years; including appearances on Comedy Central and David Letterman, an HBO special,
a sitcom on the Disney channel, a failed marriage, a few stints in rehab, and a starring role in the
12th season of The Surreal Life.
