Deal With It Tour Taylor Tomlinson
Taylor Tomlinson’s perspective possesses a degree of wisdom that’s typically earned with age. Named to Forbes’ 2021 class of 30 Under 30, fans got a healthy dose of that wisdom when her first-ever, hour-long special, “Quarter-Life Crisis,” debuted on Netflix last March just as the world entered into a once-in-a-century pandemic. The special went on to earn unanimous critical praise with the Washington Post calling her “your favorite quarantine-watch” and Newsweek opining she is “undeniably hilarious” and “wise beyond her years.”
Focusing exclusively on Taylor’s old-soul clarity is tempting, but what makes the woman Mashable calls "whip-smart and spectacularly cynical," stand out isn’t just that she seems too young to understand youth so well. It’s that she combines that vision with on-the-nose immediacy that can only come with still living in the moments being lampooned.
“I think that’s what comedians do: We’re funny in the moment,” Taylor says. “We’re just so selfreflective and narcissistic.” She laughs, then adds, “But I’ve always felt older than I am. That virus joke is similar to a lot of material in my first Netflix special. It’s me being frustrated that I’m in a period of my life that everybody talks about like—"Ooof, yeah, that was hard. It was fun! But I wouldn’t go back for anything.”
Performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CONAN, Comedy Central's Adam Devine's House Party, and Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup, as well as a top-ten finish in season 9 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, have all endeared Taylor to a national audience. Variety Magazine named her one of the Top 10 Comics to Watch at the Just for Laughs Festival, and she’s a regular on What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage.

Comedienne Taylor Tomlinson’s witty perspective on navigating adulthood has undertones of wisdom, typically earned with age. With open arms, Forbes’ welcomed Tomlinson to the 2021 ’30 Under 30’ class. In March 2020, Taylor Tomlinson’s voice rose from the pandemic silence, with a first-ever, hour-long Netflix Special ‘Quarter-Life Crisis.’ The special earned unanimous praise, accompanied by nods from the Washington Post who deemed it, “your favorite quarantine-watch.” Newsweek doubled down, cosigning that Tomlinson is “undeniably hilarious” and “wise beyond her years.”
With only three weeks into the Deal With It Tour, Tomlinson has set the bar high with seventeen sold-out shows. She continues her cross-country trek with dates in the United States and Canada — including a stop in Cincinnati, OH at Taft Theatre on Saturday, March 26th.
Taylor Tomlinson has stamped her name in her-story as one of the youngest comedians to headline theatres, joining the ranks of Eddie Murphy and Dave Chapelle. She notes that, “This hour is definitely darker and more personal — ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ was about being frustrated with where (I’m) at in life and this new material is about taking a hard look at who (I) am and how (I) got that way.”
She’s spent much of 2019 filling comedy clubs with belly laughs across the country. During a pandemic where people search for reasons to smile, she began the 2019-2020 The Codependent Tour in seven cities with nineteen shows. It was her first co-headlining tour with fellow comedienne, Whitney Cummings. The socially-distanced, outdoor performances kicked off in Philadelphia with five shows; shortly ushering in fourteen more shows — in six different cities.
Tomlinson’s Netflix Special is decades-long proof of life experience, writing and performing. The set was a masterful display of comedic timing, crowd synchronicity, and smarts. Tomlinson’s special went on to be named ‘Best of 2020’ by New York Times, Decider, Paste; and Vulture’s “comedian you should and will know!”
