Taylor Tomlinson needed to find the funny in her bipolar diagnosis

“I don’t know if any of you have tried to get a guy in his twenties to wear a condom on a dating app lately, but it’s kind of like trying to so that a 5-year-old puts a jacket over his Halloween costume.”, Taylor Tomlinson riffed in a stand-up clip posted on TikTok. “It’s like, ‘Nooooooooooooo, you go ruin this!'”

It’s the kind of thing the comedian never dreamed of saying growing up, as she said, “really sheltered,” in an intensely conservative Christian family in Temecula, Calif., let alone streaming to the 1.6 million fans who follow her on the sharing site of videos.

“For the first six years, the first half of my career so far, I was creaky clean,” the 28-year-old said in a recent interview with E! News. And not entirely by choice. The church circuit, her favorite hangout after taking an acting class at 16 and finding out it was a real, viable career, “is so strict,” she continued, “that I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t want to stay in this.'”
