Taylor Tomlinson is hitting it big time.
The comedian, 29, was just announced to host her own late night show “After Midnight” and will replace James Corden’s time slot on CBS.
The announcement was revealed on Wednesday’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The series will drop in 2024 and Colbert will serve as executive producer.
“We’ll need someone who is, I don’t know, fun, likable, young, in touch with online trends and available every night of the week,” he said just before announcing Tomlinson as the new emcee.
“I’m 29 so if you don’t know who I am, don’t worry. I barely know myself,” Tomlinson said on the broadcast.
“After Midnight” is inspired by the Comedy Central series, “@midnight with Chris Hardwick.”
She previously was at the helm of her own specials on Netflix, titled “Look At You” and “Quarter-Life Crisis.”

She’s one of the most followed female comedians on TikTok
Tomlinson has garnered much success on the social media platform and is the seventh most followed female comedian on the app.
She currently has 2.5 million followers and often shares clips from her media appearances and from her comedy specials.
She was born and raised in California
Tomlinson was born in 1993 in Orange County, Calif. and was raised in Temecula. For a brief time, she attended California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
Her mother died of cancer when she was 8 years old and was raised alongside three brothers.
She was once engaged
In her 2022 special, “Look at You,” she revealed that she was once engaged.
However, she ended the relationship before taping her first stand-up show, “Quarter-Life Crisis.” The event aired on Netflix in 2020.
She has bipolar disorder
She often uses mental health issues and her bipolar disorder diagnosis for much of her stand-up material.
In “Look at You,” she described having depression and anxiety.
Earlier this year, Tomlinson traveled to Dublin for two of her comedy shows and shared on social media that her last trip to Ireland was in 2019.
She noted how that during that previous trip she “was at one of the lowest points of my life.”
“[That] summer I started seeing a psychiatrist and a few months before I filmed ‘Quarter-Life Crisis.’ It was so nice to be back 4 years later. Happy and healthy and living my g-ddamn dream,” she captioned her post.
She counts Dave Chappelle as one of her influences
Tomlinson noted that she idolizes iconic comedians such as Richard Pryor, Chappelle, Conan O’Brien, Bert Kreischer and John Mulaney.
She also looks to Brian Regan and Maria Bamford as her main comedic influences.
“I loved Brian Regan and Maria Bamford when I was younger—and still do. Regan is just one of the greats, and also the nicest person. And you could listen to him with your whole family and know everyone would enjoy it. I love everything Maria Bamford does. She’s so different from anyone else out there, and she talks about mental health in such a hilarious, vulnerable, amazing way,” she told Netflix in 2022.
