A native of La Crescenta California, Taylor Ketchum’s journey into the stand-up comedy world has been anything but ordinary. A former college football player, Taylor spent most of his 20’s in and out of detoxes and various free clinics around the Los Angeles area. After a fated meeting with another comedian in a drug rehab, Taylor lied his way onto a local comedy stage and never looked back. Since then he has brought his unique perspective to audiences around the country, using his unusual background and unique outlook as fodder. Taylor’s comedy bridges the gap between the dark, dinginess of America’s underbelly and the everyday silliness of our conventional routine, “finding the balance between the only man and the every man.”
A co-producer of “The Meaning of Life,” a weekly stand-up showcase in the East Village, Taylor can be seen performing nearly every night in New York City.
