Stand Up Comedy Shows from Taylor Mason
Audiences might be surprised to see a piano onstage at stand up comedy shows, but as soon as Taylor Mason begins his routine, the reason for its presence is evident. He breaks into soulful blues run with ease, talking to the audience with music and voice, taking them to the scenario of his choice. He lays the foundation, the music serving as accompaniment, much like film scores do in an action movie: subtly there, but unmistakable. He prepares you for a journey, making you sit up in your chair as he approaches the cliffhanger and eases you back in comfort as he makes you laugh about the possibilities. And then he sings. You don’t expect him to, but he does. And it sounds better than you imagined. Before long, he’s up and introducing you to Romeo, one of the puppets he works with, showing his unparalleled ventriloquist skills.
Taylor Mason is the quintessential triple threat.
He is a comedian, pianist, and an accomplished ventriloquist. How many times do you hear of that combination? Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Taylor Mason comes along and changes the game.
Taylor Mason has been doing this for a long time. After winning Star Search in 1990, he’s been on a roller coaster ride. One of the few who can say they’ve experienced consistent work throughout their career, Taylor Mason has published books on ventriloquism, has produced DVDs for altruistic causes and has appeared on such stand up comedy shows as Thou Shalt Laugh and Bananas. Taylor Mason also starred in the TV show Taylor’s Attic, which showcased antics of he and his puppet friends.
Taylor Mason definitely brings a lot to the table. His quick wit and ability to find humor in the most inane situations is mind-boggling. You never know what subject he will broach, nor how he will present it. He’ll play a song, engaging the audience, and then call some unsuspecting soul onto the stage. He doesn’t stop there. The participant then becomes part of the show, singing riffs or clapping their hands, as Taylor continues his skit. He keeps people interested – keeps them on their toes. And the dynamic between Taylor Mason and his puppet Romeo, a surfer dude in miniature with a penchant for exaggeration, will put you in stitches. Keeping the audience on the edge is part of Taylor Mason’s allure.
If you want funny stand up comedy shows that are versatile and engaging, Taylor Mason is your man. His unique brand of humor is a crowd pleaser.
