“Sarah Taylor is a natural performer…”
– San Jose Mercury News
Actor, Comedian, Writer/Performer
Sarah Taylor is an award-winning actor and writer/comedian based in Los Angeles. Being a meditation teacher and energy healer as well, her comedy weaves in spiritual depth and understanding of the human condition with a healthy dose of silliness.
She was a series regular for three seasons on NBC’s “In Gayle We Trust”, can be seen in the comedy feature, “The Golden Scallop” and has made appearances on Hot In Cleveland, Bunheads, and numerous other TV shows and films.
Sarah’s been seen on stages all over the world from The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. to The Volksbuhne Theatre in Berlin, and other places along the way including Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and delicious Dijon, France.
Variety calls her “stunningly good”, Backstage West says she’s “glorious”, and The Chicago Reader finds her “impressive” and “mercurial”, which might just be a nice way of saying she’s moody.
Sarah has performed at all the top comedy clubs including The Improv, The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and many other venues that serve fried food and charge a two-drink minimum.
She’s the creator of The Divine Mess Show, has given a TEDx talk on meditation, and currently shares the silly and deep video series “Teddy Talks”on her You Tube channel and Facebook page.
Sarah drives funny…while talking to Teddy. Things get deep. And ridiculous.
Yoga, Buddhism, relationship skillz. It’s all here.
