America's Got Talent Wiki

Drew Lynch was a stand-up comedian act from Season 10 of America's Got Talent. He was the runner-up of the competition. Drew returned for America's Got Talent: The Champions. There, he was eliminated in the Preliminaries, finishing his night tied for third place.


Born in Indiana and raised in Las Vegas, Drew graduated high school with aspirations of becoming a fully articulate film actor in Los Angeles. At age 19 at a company softball game, Drew got hit in the throat causing some vocal trauma, turning his chattering into stuttering. With this life-changing injury and passion for writing and performing stand up, he began bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a speech impediment. Inspired by Louis C.K. and Bo Burnham, Drew is on a mission to make you laugh. [1]


Drew Lynch's audition in Episode 1001 consisted of joking about how his stutter affected his working at a drive-thru and voicing a GPS System. Moved by his performance, Howie Mandel pressed his Golden Buzzer to send Drew straight to the Quarterfinals.


Drew Lynch's Week 1 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1012 consisted of joking about having a service dog (and expecting a magic chihuahua), answering for his dog, and his cat having Tourette's syndrome (possibly a reference to his colleague Samuel Conroe). Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel gave him standing ovations. Drew received enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 1013 along with Paul Zerdin, instead of Showproject.


Drew Lynch's Week 1 Semifinals performance in Episode 1018 consisted of joking about his talking on the phone sounding like a bad reception and a woman, trying to pay off his bills two weeks late, and him sounding like he is telling someone he is pregnant. Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel gave Drew standing ovations. Drew received enough votes to be sent to the Finals in Episode 1019 instead of Siro-A.


Drew Lynch's Finals performance in Episode 1022 consisted of lacking conviction in his voice, spending too much time giving his phone number to his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's bust. Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel gave him standing ovations.


For the finale in Episode 1023, Drew Lynch attempted to roast Gary Vider. When guest Jeffrey Ross insisted that they were too nice, Jeffrey roasted both the comedians and the judges. Drew and Gary then retorted by roasting Jeffrey. Drew was revealed to be in the Top 5 instead of Gary Vider. Drew was revealed to have finished in second place in the competition, in front of Oz Pearlman, The Professional Regurgitator, and The CraigLewis Band, but behind Paul Zerdin.

"The Champions" Preliminaries

Drew returned for America's Got Talent: The Champions. His performance in Episode TC04 consisted of a stand-up routine including jokes about Invisalign braces. Heidi Klum gave him a standing ovation. It was revealed that the superfans voted Drew into the top 4 along with Brian Justin Crum, Paul Zerdin and Tape Face. It was later revealed that he received fewer votes than Brian and Paul, eliminating him from the competition along with Tape Face, who received the same amount of votes.
