Tom Cotter’s audition on America’s Got Talent 7, season 2012

Every year, a few stand-up comedians throw themselves into the mix that is NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and it’s always interesting to see how the judges react — considering former stand-up comedian Howie Mandel is among them.

This season, Tom Cotter made a wise decision in cutting the time from premise-to-punchline as close as possible to land as many jokes as he could. Cotter makes it through to the next round. Roll the clip.
