What is the Comedy Café?

The Tuscaloosa Comedy Café is an annual fund-raising event that helps fund the on-going ministry of Tuscaloosa Youth For Christ and its ministry satellites. This unique event combines coffee and delicious desserts with family-friendly comedy and a creative program that highlights young people and tells the YFC story.

In its fifth year, the Tuscaloosa Comedy Café has grown to over 400 adult guests.

Who is Youth For Christ?

Youth For Christ is an international Christian youth outreach aimed at sharing the Good News Jesus Christ with high school students who are not yet part of a local church. YFC reaches youth in over 100 countries and ministers to over 2,000 students in Tuscaloosa County. YFC's primary ministries in Tuscaloosa are Campus Life, Teen Moms and CORE. To learn more contact Tuscaloosa Youth For Christ at 205-752-3361.

What does it cost?

Seats are $50 each. In many instances, table hosts have covered the cost for their guests to attend. All funds raised will benefit the youth of Tuscaloosa through the work of YFC.

What can I expect?

It will be a night you will never forget. YFC students and staff will share great stories of what God is doing in and through them. Comedian Taylor Mason will bring his unique blend of humor and guests will be challenged to join us in delivering the hope of Christ to thousands of area youth. Our hope is you will join us a financial partner in this mission.

How long does it last?

Doors open at 6:30 and the program will conclude by 8:30.

Can I bring my children?

The evening's program is intended for adults who will consider partnering with Youth For Christ. Childcare is available for those age 2 and up.

Taylor Mason

I love to make people laugh, and am blessed to be able to perform 200-300 dates every year. Ever since I won Star Search (the predecessor to America's Got Talent for those of you too young to know, or too old to remember), I've been in great demand all across the US and all over the world.

I combine comedy, ventriloquism and music to provide appropriate entertainment for everything from tailored corporate presentations and commercials to Carnegie Hall, from Second City to churches to Disney cruises.

But enough about me. Let's see what others have to say about me.

Taylor Mason's quick wit, flawless delivery and polished material make him a hit with audiences of all ages. He is a ventriloquist, musician and stand-up comedian.

He has carved out a career in comedy and entertainment that has taken him around the world and into living rooms across the United States for the past 25 years. He's won multiple, prestigious entertainment awards, appeared on a myriad of television programs, helped craft and performed in television commercials, wrote a book on ventriloquism for Penguin Publishing, and on an on.

He has a bachelor's in Agriculture from the University of Illinois and a master's degree from The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. His experience as a comedy writer and performer has taken him from The Second City Theater in Chicago to headlining gigs at every major comedy club across the country. He's as comfortable writing and executing humor for corporate clients like Microsoft and Wal-Mart as he is doing a show for teens or children on a Disney Cruise ship. He's performed for countless church functions. He's done bar mitzvahs and synagogue shows. He continues to sell out comedy clubs and is requested at college campuses.

It's impossible to put Taylor Mason in a box. You cannot define his audience, because his act transcends demographics and niches. It's a throwback and yet it's contemporary. He's inclusive, he's genuinely interested in his audience and he's 100% committed to every performance, every project, and every single job he takes.

There is no way to describe what he does, because combining ventriloquism, music and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed. Google "Taylor Mason" and view hundreds of videos, some home-made, some taken from countless television and DVD projects, that continue to add up, including the film, Thou Shalt Laugh V.

Taylor Mason stays out of the bedroom and out of the bathroom (which sets him apart from most comedy acts today) and concentrates on jokes and punch lines. He respects people's differences and concentrates on getting laughs. He gives great effort every time he takes the stage.

Does it sound old school? Only if music, laughter and the shared experience of sheer joy and excitement are out-of-date. For Taylor Mason, these are calling cards as a comedian, and the pillars on which he has built an outstanding, consistent and truly American career as an entertainer.
