Kelly Taylor Bio
Kelly Taylor is feeling pretty comfortable with his decision to give up his mediocre career in hockey and pursue his dream to become a stand-up comedian. Hockey, once the only way a small town Canadian kid could get to the big city; Kelly 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. He may have given up hockey for comedy, but this funnyman sure knows how to score on stage.
Although truth be known Giggles Comedy Agency has booked Kelly at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, as well as the comedy festivals in Winnipeg, Halifax and Edmonton to go with previous appearances at the Vancouver and Calgary Comedy Festivals. He has become the favorite comedian of the Canadian Armed Forces having entertained our troops in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Thailand.
His first appearance at Just For Laughs did not go unnoticed as creative heads from NBC Universal, Happy Gilmore Productions and Jimmy Kimmel quickly approached with interest.
Kelly Taylor has since spent much of his time on the road, doing shows for colleges in the U.S and Canada. Already conquering Canada he is also one the busiest comedians on the American college scene. “Campuses are different in Canada, as opposed to the U.S. In Canada, it’s more cut loose and free. I talk about drinking and partying and stuff like that, and in the U.S. it seems like they have comedy set up as an alternative for people going out and drinking,” says Taylor. “I kind of tailor that show in America to just talking about everyday things.”
“When I do corporate work, I talk about family and kids, whereas when I’m talking to a college crowd, I rarely talk about having kids and that. His “down-home” style and his ability to tailor his show to the audience has made him a favorite all across Canada and the US at corporate events, community fundraisers and universities.
