BIOGRAPHY:



Sardonic and personal, Johnny Taylor elevates the art of self-deprecating storytelling with his debut album, Tangled Up in Plaid on Stand Up! Records.

 

Taylor gained the attention of the comedy world sharing stages with Robin Williams, Doug Stanhope, and Dave Attell. Taylor is currently co-headlining Godless, a comedy tour with Stand Up! Records label mate Keith Lowell Jensen.

 

Lovably sarcastic and hilariously introspective, Taylor delivers chapters from his awkward autobiography with smoothness comparable to making love on sandpaper sheets.

 

Tangled up in Plaid is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, or out of his backpack at live shows.
