Johnny Taylor is my guest this week. Johnny’s a stand-up comedian who has performed with Robin Williams, Doug Stanhope, and Dave Attell. His album Tangled Up in Plaid was a Top 20 hit on iTunes.

Johnny and I chat about kids learning to cuss from comedians; “That’s the beauty of a fart”; how he avoided doing stand-up by writing for Gawker and ebaumsworld; dealing with the worst type of crowd; how the end of a relationship was good for the creative process; his penchant for naming his albums after albums; and how he crafts a joke.

Johnny Taylor and Keith Lowell Jensen recently started MASS at Momo Sacramento every first Sunday of every month. Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7. He’s such a cool guy, he’ll even let you stream Tangled Up in Plaid. Be sure to follow Johnny on Twitter.

Thank you for listening to my conversation with Johnny Taylor!
