America’s Got Talent Season 8 runner-up Taylor Williamson recently premiered a hilarious new comedy special while also announcing an extensive stand-up tour for 2024. Williamson’s trademark awkward charm shines in the special, titled Taylor Williamson: Live at the Comedy Store.


Taylor Williamson Returns to Comedic Roots With Self-Financed Special

On December 7, 2023, Williamson’s special debuted on YouTube, marking a triumphant homecoming to The Comedy Store. It’s the venue where his career first began at just 17 years old.

Filmed at the legendary club, Williamson brings his signature blend of uncomfortable wit and sharp observations to topics like hoarding, dating, going to Japan, and being Jewish.

The self-financed special demonstrates Williamson’s dedication to his comedic craft and commitment to sharing his art widely. Fans can stream the laughter-filled show for free on YouTube.


Williamson first landed in the spotlight as the Season 8 runner-up on NBC’s AGT in 2014. His success on the show followed previous TV appearances on The Late Late Show, The Nick Cannon Show, and more.

Williamson has since performed multiple comedy tours and released an album titled Laughter? I Hardly Know Her! He’s also a favorite guest on podcasts like WTF with Marc Maron.

Following his special’s debut, Williamson thrilled fans by unveiling a massive stand-up tour for 2024. Kicking off on January 4, in Louisville, Kentucky, the tour currently includes over 25 stops spanning North America.


Williamson will visit comedy clubs and theaters in various cities like Fort Wayne, Calgary, Tampa, Tulsa, Tempe, and more before wrapping up in Los Angeles. His final show will be at the Elysian Theater on May 12, as part of the Netflix Is a Joke Fest.

For devoted followers across the continent, Williamson’s tour provides a chance to experience his comedy and charm in person. The widespread dates demonstrate the rising stardom since his breakout on AGT.

With his new special and extensive 2024 tour, the funnyman is proving why he’s one of today’s fastest-rising talents in stand-up. Williamson may not have won his season of AGT, but his comedy career is now a clear success.
