At just four years into the uncertain world of stand-up comedy, Kelly Taylor is feeling pretty comfortable with his decision to give up his mediocre career in hockey and pursue his dream. Hockey, once the only way a small town Canadian kid could get to the big city; Taylor now sees the possibilities of comedy taking him all the way to the Alberta border. With the physical attributes of a high school quarterback and the comedic commitment of Jerry Lewis, Kelly Taylor is taking the comedy world by storm.
This summer, Kelly Taylor shocked the comedy industry by placing second in the prestigious Just for Laughs Homegrown competition. Competing against comics who have been in the business for ten plus years, Kelly Taylor firmly made his mark at JFL. His performance did not go unnoticed as creative heads from NBC Universal, Happy Gilmore Productions and Jimmy Kimmel quickly approached with interest.
Kelly’s ability to headline clubs, corporate and college events at just three years into his budding career is evidence that this kid is the real deal. Aside from Just for Laughs, he has already appeared at The Vancouver and Calgary Comedy Festivals. He has opened for the likes of Blake Clark, Eddie Brill, Rich Hall and others. Kelly has performed all across the country and recently made his debut in New York City at some of the most well respected clubs in the industry.
