Congratulations to Tom Cotter for advancing yet again and cracking the finals of NBC’s America’s Got Talent!
We are incredibly proud of Tom. He has earned everything that he is getting. A great comic, an amazing writer and a wonderful human being.
We are looking forward to watching him give it his all in the finals!
Congratulations again Tom.
Last night, long-time friend of the Comic Strip Live!, the hilarious Tom Cotter blew the panel of judges away and was rewarded with fantastically kind words, resounding audience applause and a trip to the next round on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
A 23-year veteran of the stand up world with prior credits including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Comedy Central Presents: Tom Cotter,” CBS’s “The Late Late Show” and “Last Comic Standing,” Cotter will be the first to admit he’s not yet a household name. But after last night’s amazing display of timing, writing and persistence at his craft, eyes around the world are sure to focus on the humble jokesmith from New England.
Congratulations Tom! You’ve earned this. Best wishes moving forward to the next round in Las Vegas (a place where Tom once WON the prestigious Las Vegas Comedy Festival!)
The Comic Strip Live! has been known by comedians and comedy fans alike for having one of the most welcoming and fun lobbies in town. Comics will come early to hang out and see friends and stay late talking with other comics and fans and work-shopping ideas. Many of the industry brightest stars will stop by, simply to spend some time in the lobby because they feel it helps open up their creativity.
