Hi I’m Taylor. I’m a comedian and a second place winner of AMERICA’S GOT TALENT! I started performing stand-up comedy while I was a senior in high school in Del Mar, California. I now live in Los Angeles and travel the globe (if you don’t count countries other than America and Canada) telling jokes. I’ve performed at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal, Canada and I was the youngest comedian to ever perform on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON. I’ve also appeared on MTV’s TRL, COMEDY CENTRAL’S LIVE AT GOTHAM, and I was a semi-finalist on the final season of NBC's LAST COMIC STANDING.
Candice Thompson is a comedian/writer/actor that was born in Queens, raised in Cincinnati, and currently resides in Los Angeles. She is the perfect mix of both East and West coasts with just the wrong amount of Midwest street cred. Candice comes from an ethnically mixed family with both of her parents being of African-American and Native American descent, but often gets mistaken for just plain old white.
Candice is one of the newest paid regulars at The Comedy Store in Hollywood, performs at the Hollywood Improv, Laugh Factory and was a 2013 NACA participant. You may have also seen her as a cast member on BET’s #1 hit show HELL DATE. You can hear her every week on iTunes as co-host of the podcast OFFARIOUS: The Show that’s Offensive & Hilarious, and in the comedic YouTube sketch series she co-created, CREEPY CARESS. She was also on season 9 of NBC’s LAST COMIC STANDING and currently on E! network’s THE COMMENT SECTION.
Candice’s comedy has often made people squirm in their seats and most recently, has gotten her ejected from a wedding, but it’s her edgy vs. adorable factor that keeps crowds begging for more. Candice wants to thank her friends and family for all their support, but most of all she wants to thank God for making her better than everybody.

Born and raised on the mean streets of St. Paul, Minnesota, Jeffrey Baldinger discovered his love for comedy at a young age, admiring the likes of Rodney Dangerfield and Andy Kaufman. But after moving from Minnesota to Israel, to Kansas, to Australia, to Kansas again, and then to Minnesota again, he ultimately found his calling at an open mic on the east side of Los Angeles.
Since beginning his stand up career, Jeffrey has used his quick wit and goofy attitude about life to become a favorite amongst crowds and fellow comedians alike. He has appeared on The Outsourced (2010), The Playboy Comedy Tour (2011-12), and has been featured on Louie Anderson's LOL show in Las Vegas. He is also the creator and producer of the Hollywood Improv's most successful monthly show, Flyover Comedy.
Jeffrey has been featured on the websites Youtube, Break.com and FunnyorDie.com, and has made appearances on Showtime's Dexter, ABC's Happy Endings, and NBC's Community. Most recently, Jeffrey appeared as a panelist on HDnet's "AXS Live Super Bowl Show."
Jeffrey is a regular on one of the biggest college comedy shows in the USA, Comedy Juice, and he can be seen most nights performing at the World Famous Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and the Hollywood Improv. Jeffrey does not like writing in the third person, but has decided it to be the best way to write his bio...for the time being
