“Not only is Ed Taylor the most convincing Santa Claus I’ve ever seen, he’s also incredibly nice, super easy to work with, and a very funny improviser.”
Shane Nickerson

“Santa Ed, you were great on the Palm Springs Tram commercial shoot. Thank you.”  
Phillip Large,
Hairy Dog Entertainment

"Ed, Thank you for your excellent work on our Meijer shoot. You truly embody Santa’s character perfectly. You are a master of the subtle; the nod, wink and smile.  You were a joy to work with.

I know that it was a grueling shoot, with long hours and many locations and wardrobe changes. The fact that it was in the 90s every day didn’t help much either and I’m sure you must have been sweltering. But you were always happy, incredibly easy to work with and I wanted to let you know that our ad agency, as well as our client noticed your professionalism.

I sincerely hope that we have a chance to work together again in the future." 
Nik Traxler
Head of Production,
The Distillery Project

“Ed Taylor is the greatest Santa in the history of Santas. Bar none. Period.  End of story. He is so authentic as St. Nick himself, I found myself confused and wondering ‘Is Santa actually for real and standing in front of me?’ He’s a master.”
Rob Dyrdek
Professional Skateboarder and
Host of MTV  – Ridiculousness
