America's Got Talent Wiki

Tita Begashaw was a laughter coach from Season 11 of America's Got Talent. She was eliminated in the audition round.


Tita Begashaw lives in Seattle, Washington. She is a patient service specialist. In 2001, she saw a flag in the hospital discussing the benefit of laughter. A native of Ethiopia, she moved to this country in 1988 and to Seattle in 1994. She began volunteering at Harborview Hospital soon thereafter. After being grief-stricken at the death of her younger brother, she knew that the path to healing lay in being of service to others. Tita’s a natural laugher and uses this gift to lead the Friday morning laughter club at Harborview. [1]


Tita Begashaw's audition in Episode 1102 consisted of demonstrating three of her five hundred different kinds of laughs: penguin laughter, silent laughter, greeting laughter. Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell buzzed the act. Mel B also pressed Howie Mandel's buzzer, but that buzz was quickly retracted. Mel B, Heidi, and Simon voted "No," eliminating Tita from the competition.
