“I don’t know if any of you have tried to get a twentysomething dude from a dating app to wear a condom lately, but it’s sort of like trying to get a 5-year-old to put a jacket on over his Halloween costume,” Taylor Tomlinson riffed in one stand-up clip posted on TikTok. “It’s like, ‘Noooooooooooo, you’re gonna ruin it!’”

It’s the form of a factor the stand-up comic by no means would have dreamed of saying when rising up, as she put it, “really sheltered,” in an intensely conservative Christian household in Temecula, Calif., a lot much less broadcasting to the 1.6 million followers who comply with her on the video sharing website.

“For the first, like six years—the first half of my career so far—I was squeaky clean,” the 28-12 months-previous mentioned in a current interview with E! News. And not solely by selection. The church circuit, her go-to venue after she took a comedy class at 16 and found it was a precise, viable profession, “is so crazy strict,” she continued, “that I’m like, ‘Oh, I don’t want to stay in this.’”
