Creator & Executive Producer
In 2014, Marsha Taylor attended a comedy show on Broadway in New York City. Afterwards, she commented that one of the comedians was so funny “he deserved and award”. That night, and that comment, sparked the idea for The LOL Comedy Honors. It took 3 years and 7 months, but on August 24, 2017, history was made as comedic legends, stars, and comics on-the-rise gathered together to celebrate the comedy world like never before.
Marsha started her own company Hidden Agenda in 1998 offering administrative services to some of the top music industry producers and engineers of the day. The company later expanded operations to offer media coaching to clients who sought to become more confident with public speaking. Hidden Agenda currently focuses solely on special event production, with the LOL Comedy Honors being the flagship event.
