About Dude Dad:
Hi! I’m Taylor Calmus, a Colorado-based actor/comedian. I began Dude Dad two weeks before my son Theo was born as a way to remain inventive while studying to be a dad. My spouse Heidi and I now have 3 children and over 300+ video clips. My intention for the channel is to entertain, enlighten and motivate.

In addition to Dude Dad©, I have been in various TV shows, commercials, and have normal appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live. I will in addition be hosting my own TV show called “Super Dad” on the new Magnolia Network / Discovery+. Heidi and the children will in addition be a part of the show. I am initially from the rural community of Howard, South Dakota.


  1. OMG I saw this on Facebook the other day and I loved it

  2. And I’m here complaining about how much money I have lost this year, while having two perfectly healthy boys. God bless you all 👏

    Thank you so so much for sharing this. My son is verbally delayed and some days are just so crushing to see other kids in his class say handfuls of words. While we do therapy also, my husband continues to remind me that he will learn in his own time and to enjoy how he is now.

  4. Kudos to you guys for tuning in to your son and getting him the help he needed. By giving him space to grow, he will be strong and capable.

  5. Oh my goodness! Congratulations to this adorable little guy! He is so beautiful 💖

  6. Mine are 14,18 and 21 and it’s true at this stage too. The changes from adolescence to adulthood are far different than infancy to childhood, but still SO FAST. And your advice is just as relevant and wise. ❤

  7. I know exactly what you guys went through 😭😭😭 my daughter didn’t walk until 17 months and we had to do physical therapy too.

  8. You have such a beautiful family. I’m so glad you are sharing this journey. Every child is different and special. Much ❤

  9. Love the vids, keep it up!
