Tanyalee Davis is standup comedian who inspires, enlightens and entertains her audiences while headlining at comedy clubs, colleges, and comedy festivals throughout North America, the UK, and other parts of the world with her own unique perspective and somewhat racy brand of comedy.
Standing at 3' 6" tall, Tanyalee is the Ferrari of comedy - low to the ground and kind of racy. Canadian born, Tanyalee currently makes the stage her home while touring all over the world bringing the funny!
From January to June 2011, Tanyalee had a successful 6 month contract performing “Little Comedian, BIG Laughs” 4 nights a week for 6 months, just off the Las Vegas strip
In 2007 Tanyalee premiered her first one woman show called “Little Do They Know” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where she received 4 star reviews.
In July 2011, the pilot episode of “Adam Hills: Comically Challenged” was aired on BBC Northern Ireland where Tanyalee was featured.
Tanyalee was spotlighted on the premiere episode of “Last Comic Standing 2”, “Little People, Big World” as well as featuring on “World’s Smallest People” on ITV (UK) and TLC -The Learning Channel.
Working on “Austin Powers 3: Goldmember” movie teaser was a highlight of Tanyalee’s career, along with featuring in a movie called, “For the Love of Money”. Tanyalee has also been seen on MTV’s BASH and Dave Attel’s Insomniac show: Live at the House of Blues.
In 2012, Tanyalee supported the amazing Frankie Boyle on his national UK tour. 2012 also saw her star in Season 1 of CH4's hit TV show "Im Spazticus". The show was so successful that she was subsequently invited back to star in a bigger role in Season 2 which aired in late 2013. The same year also saw her appear as a guest on Adam Hill's CH4 hit show, "The Last Leg".
Tanyalee made her BBC TV debut in 2015 by appearing on both The John Bishop Show and Live At The Apollo to great reception.
Tanyalee’s perception of people, and how they perceive her, exaggerates the humor of life’s “little” tasks and routines. One theme in Tanyalee’s act is about being “sexy”. The “sexy comes from within”, which means everyone can be sexy and Tanyalee proves it.
Tanyalee has made a small yet significant dent in the entertainment scene thus far, headlining throughout the US, Canada and the UK. What she lacks in height she makes up in tenacity. Known as “the little lady with a lot of BIG laughs.”
