Jacob Williams, Tom Cotter advance to final 48, live-show rounds of America’s Got Talent 7
At least two stand-up comedians will vie for your votes and a chance at a million-dollar prize in this summer's seventh edition of America's Got Talent.
Cotter, 48, has several TV credits on his resume already, including Leno, Ferguson, Last Comic Standing and a half-hour Comedy Central Presents. And Williams is no stranger to strange contests that take him to Las Vegas. Williams, 23, won that contest Pauly Shore ran on his Facebook page a couple of years ago to open for his TV taping in Vegas.
Here is the audition clip from Williams which aired last week:
Cotter appeared on an audition episode of AGT last month. Here is a clip of Cotter from the Vegas Week episode:
Other comedians who made it to Vegas on AGT7 but didn't survive the cut to the final 48 last night: Sammy Obeid, Dave Burleigh, Kellen Erskine and Frank Roche.
No comedian has won America's Got Talent yet, although a ventriloquist (Terry Fator) has.
Stay tuned to see how Cotter and Williams fare in the upcoming live primetime performances.
