Who Are Taylor Tomlinson’s Parents?
Taylor Tomlinson was born to her parents Angela and Eric Tomlinson. The oldest of four daughters born to her parents was raised in Southern California. Her father supported her when she chose to pursue comedy as a career. She grew up in a very conservative household and her experience in that environment makes up the material for her performance.
She has also spoken about her parents in a podcast. She described how things change when her mom became pregnant with her. At the time, both of her parents were in college and married.
Taylor also joked in her special that she was “an ugly kid with honest parents”.

Meet Angela Tomlinson, Taylor Tomlinson Mom
Angela Tomlinson was 8 years old when she learned that her mother had died of cancer. She started stress eating to cope with all the changes that were happening in her life. She had joked and said she became an emotional eater — probably because she was in the middle of a bagel when she found out her mother died.
Taylor makes a dark joke about her mom. Like in one of her special, she shared, “Do you think I’d be this successful at my age if I had a live mom?”
She continued, “She’s in heaven, I’m on Netflix — it all worked out. That is a real thing I said in therapy.”
Taylor has made a post about her mom on her Instagram a few times. In August 2018, Taylor posted a picture of her mom and wrote, “Stand-up comedy really did change my life and I am VERY blessed to have the career I do. But when cool stuff happens I always get a little bummed that my mom isn’t here to see it. This is my favorite picture because it’s the only one I have of me making her laugh. (And it is a TRUE candid photo taken – you guessed it – on a disposable camera.)”
Two years before in 2016, around the same time, Taylor had made another post with a picture of her mom. She captioned, “I lost my mom 14 years ago this week. I don’t want to bore you with a long, sappy post about love and loss but just remember to appreciate your parents – hang out with them a bunch and ask for lots of advice and stories while they’re around.”

Meet Eric Tomlinson, Taylor Tomlinson Dad
Eric Tomlinson, the father of Taylor Tomlinson, was often portrayed by his daughter on her gigs as someone with an unprogressive view. She has talked about her father’s view on gay marriage and his strict emphasis on “abstaining from drugs and alcohol and sex and enjoyment.”
Taylor was 16 when her father introduced her to comedy through a church-based comedy class. Speaking with Bust she explained, “So we did that and he went back to making money in a real job and I decided to become a comedian and drop out of college — so, you know, very weird story. I definitely fell into it.”
But, her success as a comedian caused fallout in the father-daughter relationship, after she decided to make it her full-time profession. It started happening around the time around “Conan” set and after her first Netflix special “Quarter-Life Crisis”.
“I think that if you are a very conservative Christian parent, and your kid deviates from what is so important to you, that is very painful.” She shared. “And then it’s probably 100 times more painful when they are a public figure, for lack of a better term. I hate referring to myself as a public figure, but, you know … we got the blue checkmark.”
Taylor added further, “My extended family was very cool and nice and supportive and so were my siblings, who I’m very close to. My dad, as far as I know, did not watch it. And we, at this point in our lives, do not really have a relationship. It’s something that makes me very sad.”
