Stand-up comic making waves

Stand-up comic Kelly Taylor will perform at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15, in the U-Club of the Overman Student Center at Pittsburg State University. Taylor's performance, sponsored by the Student Activities Council, is free.

Taylor is relatively new to the comic scene, but already he is making waves. It was just three years ago that this Canadian gave up a mediocre career in hockey to pursue his comedy dream. This summer, Taylor placed second in the Just for Laughs Homegrown competition. His performance attracted the attention of NBC Universal, Happy Gilmore Productions and Jimmy Kimmel.

Since then, Kelly has appeared at the Vancouver and Calgary Comedy Festivals and has opened for the likes of Blake Clark, Eddie Brill and Rich Hall. This fall, Kelly is maintaining an aggressive tour schedule that takes him to scores of campuses throughout the Midwest.
