Smooth, Refreshing, Great Taste‚Ä¶ no we are not talking about the King of Beers, but rather the comedy stylings of DC‚Äôs Prince of Comedy, Tommy Taylor!
The actor/comedian Tommy Taylor, indeed has a Smooth delivery, Refreshing material, and Great Tasting‚Ä¶.well we‚Äôre not too sure about that one. But what we do know is that Tommy is handsome, hilarious, well-educated, and has the best hair in comedy.
He began performing stand-up in DC comedy clubs in 2006 and instantaneously realized he was a special talent. In his first 2 months of ever gracing a stage placed in Sierra Mists/Comedy Centrals ‚ÄúSearch for America‚Äôs Next Great Comic‚Äù (regional runner-up) and later in ‚ÄúBaltimore‚Äôs Funniest Person‚Äù competition (semi-finalist) and DCstandups ‚ÄúKomedy Kumite‚Äù (play-in winner). Recently, Tommy was also hand selected to participate in the historic ‚ÄúBay Area Black Comedy Competition‚Äù where he was a quarter-finalist.
Being a clean comedian, Taylor does not curse or get raunchy with his material. However, he still captivates audiences from all walks of life. From the rawest urban comedy clubs, to the most politically savvy mainstream rooms, Tommy uses a combination intelligence and gut-busting comedy that leaves the crowd in stitches.
Tommy recently branched out and produced his own AWARD WINNING sketch comedy show, ‚ÄúThe Tommy Taylor Show‚Äù(2007 Viewers Choice Award Winner ‚Äì DCTV). The show currently airs NATIONALLY on H20 Hip-Hop OnDemand (reaching 25 million homes), and it can be seen locally in DC, MD, and VA on‚Ä¶ABC‚Äôs Local Point TV, DCTV, and The Real Hip-Hop Network ( reaching 2,000,000 homes in DC, MD, & VA via cable television, and averages 100,000 views a month on the Internet).

With appearances on TV One‚Äôs ‚ÄúWho Got Jokes‚Äù, and Tom Joyner‚Äôs ‚ÄúTom‚Äôs Big Break‚Äù, along with reoccurring roles HBO‚Äôs The Wire (seasons 3-5), and features in the upcoming movies Die Hard 4, and National Treasure II, the multi-talented Taylor is poised to take the entertainment world by storm.
Taylor‚Äôs dangerous combination of humor and intelligence has captivated audiences across the East Coast; and while some may think Tommy is a ‚Äúknow-it-all‚Äù what we ‚Äúall know‚Äù is that this guy is FUNNY‚Ä¶and he has that ‚Äúgood hair‚Äù!
