 Tom Cotter has taken the comedy scene by storm since finishing in 2nd

place on "America's Got Talent" in 2012. He lost to a dog act, but donʼt

hold that against him; Tom was the first comedian ever to be a finalist on

the show and was the highest finishing human being on the show that year.

On August 21st 2013, AGT asked Tom back to perform as a special guest

star (along with Train) and then again to host The 2013 AGT Snapple

Viewing Party on the Sept 11th episode. Tom is currently shooting a TV

pilot for NBC and Freemantle Productions to host a reality series set to air

in the winter of 2014.

Tom's other numerous television an radio credits include "The Tonight

Show with Jay Leno," his very own special "Comedy Central Presents...

Tom Cotter," The Howard Stern Show and, most recently, a third

appearance on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." Tom also

plays in America's most famous comedy clubs including, The Improv

(chain), Catch a Rising Star, The Gotham Comedy Club and Caroline's On

Broadway just to name a few. Tom has also been featured at The Montreal

"Just For Laughs" Festival, the HBO Aspen Comedy Arts Festival and

headlining "America's Got Talent Live" at The Palazzo Las Vegas.

Tom has performed at over 300 colleges and in a wide variety of venues

from Alaska to China. His appeal is truly international as he was summoned

to London to tour and perform on British Television, and won The Seattle

International Stand-Up Comedy Competition and Boston Comedy Festival

as The Boston Herald noted “winning by the largest margin of victory in the

history of the event.”

Versatility has allowed Tom to excel in other areas of showbiz as well. His

voice has become a familiar staple in commercial voice-overs for many

high profile clients including NBC, MTV, Pepsi, McDonald's, Chevrolet and

Converse.

Whether it be comedy, voice-overs, or acting Tom Cotter gives it everything

he's got. "If laughter is the best medicine, I yearn to be drugged."
