America's Got Talent Wiki

Pork Chop Revue was a pig act from Season 15 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.


Born and raised in show business, Les Kimes is the son of one of the most comical animal trainers of our time. At age 3, he began performing alongside his father, Boyd Kimes, the originator of the Pork Chop Revue. The act toured nationally, making appearances on The Mike Douglas Show, Merv Griffin, Laugh-In, The Tonight Show, Ed Sullivan and many more!

With each appearance, audiences grew to love the semi-acrobatic antics of these pigs as they performed and outsmarted their human caretakers. Then and now, they are one of the most popular acts around. Combining and perfecting the training skills his father taught him, Les made his professional solo debut at the age of 14. His love for the animals and his energy on stage made him the natural ham his father always knew he was.

Today, Les and his wife Nina continue the Pork Chop Revue, which will be going into its third generation as Les' own sons take over. Logan and Morgan have trained under their dad, and this family act continues. Old McDonald's farm was never quite like this!


Pork Chop Revue's audition in Episode 1501 consisted of pigs performing various tricks. Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending them to the Judge Cuts.
