Taylor is a Seattle-based adult-skateboarder, husband, father and comic.
A majority of his adult life was lived in Brooklyn, but, at his core, Taylor is a man destined for the woods.
Back in the great Northwest, closer to his forest family and engulfed in wilderness, Taylor now holds his family hostage to a unique brand of absurd comedic fantasy.
Once upon a time, Taylor, with little experience or know-how, started a comedy show in the game room of a Brooklyn apartment building. He was a sponsored skateboarder, but with a collapsed ankle and the threat of homelessness creeping up behind him, Taylor was led to a career in apartment rentals. Taylor gained special access to a building named CastleBraid, which is where he first started hosting and producing stand-up shows. He went on to book shows throughout the city, at venues like “the PIT”, and “The Sheen Center”
When Taylor’s son was born he put comedy and producing shows on the back-burner to focus on being a Dad. He assured himself a career in comedy was no longer in the cards, let alone a career in skateboarding, so he packed up his family and high tailed it back home to Washington
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 was the only Seattle-based finalist in the 2017 contest.
From that point on Taylor completely dedicated to himself to doing stand up.
In 2019 he performed at the world famous Laughing Skull comedy contest and recorded his debut album “Addictive Tickle” at his home club, Laughs Comedy spot in Seattle Washington.
At the height of the pandemic, after sitting on the album for over a year, Taylor released it, leading the promotion with several of his skateboarding jokes. He put them on instagram and the jokes went viral. Mainstream skate icons like Steve Caballero, and even Tony Hawk started following him.
In the May 2021 issue of Thrasher Magazine, considered the Bible of skateboarding, Taylor received a two page interview and that same month he also got a four page article written about him in “Low Card Skateboard magazine.”and an interview in Gary Vaynerchucks “ONE37PM”.
Since then, Taylor landed a contract with Excel Forward Management, has garnered an awesome gang of fans, and has been touring ever since.
Taylor has headlined over 30 Skate-Shop Comedy shows and counting. He also headlines the comedy show at the “Tampa Pro” skate contest every year, and has opened for Mark Normand, Joe List, Jeff Ross and many others.
He is now the Talent Director of the Seattle International Comedy Competition and can be seen touring around Washington all November with a gaggle of extremely talented young comics.
Check out his web series “Comedians at Skateparks” on YouTube, and his podcast, “Addictive Tickle” streaming on all platforms.
When he’s not raising his son, he’s either skating, writing jokes, or on tour. Follow him to sit shotgun for Taylor’s many mis-adventures.
