Taylor Williamson from "America's Got Talent 2013" is one of the Top 60 acts in Season 8 of the NBC talent competition series. He previously was one of the semi-finalists in Season 7 of the NBC reality competition "Last Comic Standing" in 2010.

Taylor Williamson started performing stand-up comedy while he was a senior in high school in Del Mar, California. A year later, he moved to Los Angeles to attend college. With only 100 credits and a few years away from a degree, he decided to put his education

on hold to focus on a career that allowed him to sleep past noon. To his family's surprise, things have worked out.

In 2006 New York Magazine called him a "Name to Watch" and a "nineteen-year-old cerebral wit." He looked up the definition of "cerebral" and was very flattered. Later that year he performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. After this performance, Variety Magazine called him a "20-year-old Californian." That really meant a lot. The Montreal Gazette said he was a "twenty-year-old with nerdy delivery." He really doesn't know how he stays so humble. They rated his performance 7/10 stars, which is actually a 9.5/10 when converted to the American comedy rating system.

In 2007, he made two appearances on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." After his network TV debut was posted on Youtube, he learned that he is gay and not funny. His performances at 2 NACA conventions have led to him being misquoted in college newspapers all around the country and reviewed by more comedy experts. The comedy director at a West Virginia university said, "Taylor's quirky, off-beat delivery was off-putting to some students. Others thought it was 'funny' and 'cute.'" So if you come see him live, be careful. He might make you laugh, or extremely confused. Those are two definite possibilities.

He moved to New York City in 2007 and made perhaps the first ever stand-up comedy performance on MTV's "TRL," appearing on the same episode as New Kids on The Block. The show was cancelled two weeks later.

He has lots of exciting things coming up in the next 10 years. This includes appearances on "David Letterman," an HBO special, a sitcom on the Disney channel, two failed marriages, a few stints in rehab, and a starring role in the 15th season of "The Surreal Life."
