Even before I met Taylor Tomlinson, I already admired her work ethic. She was constantly churning out fresh material, which is really impressive for a new comedian. As seen in her stand-up specials—Quarter-Life Crisis and Look at You, which debuted on Netflix this spring—she’s also incredibly self-assured onstage, and has a very respectable knack for writing sharp jokes relatable to a wide audience.
In many ways, Taylor is representative of this new generation of comedians—a generation that is able to talk about things in a healthy, clear manner. She isn’t shrouding her personal life; she’s exposing it. Taylor doesn’t have to put on a front while performing. She shows everyone exactly who she is.
There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s gonna go exactly where she wants to go—to the moon!
