Fin Taylor is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer who began performing at Bristol University in 2009.
Since then he has forged a reputation as a highly respected live act and MC on the UK circuit.
Fin has been on tour as opening act for the likes of Glenn Wool and Russell Howard, as well as the warm up guy for Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
He is also one of the creators behind cult Edinburgh hit the Bearpit Podcast Podcast.
His 2016 Edinburgh show ‘Whitey McWhiteface’ was one of the most talked about shows of the Festival, ‘hilariously exploding white privilege’ in what the Guardian called ‘a striking, bull-in-a-china shop set from a comic that wants to make you think as well as laugh, and laugh hard’. 2017 was another good year with 'Lefty Tighty Righty Loosey' boasting one of the top 10 best reviewed shows of the Fringe and also a sell-out run thus leading to further tours including New Zealand.
