CARMEL VALLEY — In four years, when comedian Taylor Williamson returns to Torrey Pines High School for his 10th-year reunion, he won’t have to explain what he’s been up to because most of his classmates will already know. The Del Mar native has established himself as one of the brightest up-and-coming comedians in the country.
Williamson will be performing at Home for the HA!lidays, at 8 p.m. Nov. 27 at the Carlsbad Village Theatre, 2822 State St., Carlsbad. Tickets are $20 and can be ordered online at Sprocket Entertainment, or by calling (619) 997-3033.
The local funnyman started his comedy career as a senior in high school. In the very few years since then, he has amassed comedy resume including semi‐finalist on the most recent season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” two appearances on CBS’ Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and an appearance on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.”
Williamson and a couple of other comedians with San Diego ties will be appearing at the Carlsbad Village Theatre for this special Thanksgiving weekend comedy show. Appearing with Williamson will be veteran comedian, Lamont Ferguson. Many North County residents may know Ferguson as the creator/producer of the West Coast Funnies, a monthly comedy variety show in Carlsbad. Ferguson grew up in East County and now lives in Los Angeles.
The show will be hosted by another North County native funnyman now living in Los Angeles, Matt Balaker, who grew up in Carlsbad, attended Carlsbad High School and has been seen on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
