As Seen on America's Got Talent (NBC)
Tom Cotter may have been runner-up to the cunning canines of Olate Dogs on this season of "America's Got Talent", but if laughter is the best medicine, prepare to be heavily medicated. Comedian Tom Cotter's high energy, rapid-fire style of comedy leaves audiences clutching their sides and rolling in the aisles. Tom filmed his very own half hour special for Comedy Central, won the grand prize at the Boston Comedy Festival, and was voted "Best Stand-Up" at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival all over the course of just one year. He made his first appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and was featured in “Best Of The Fest” at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Other television appearances include Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, the 2008 Barbara Walters Special, The Late Late Show on CBS and NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Since moving to New York City, Tom Cotter landed his own series on the Woman’s Entertainment Network called “TWO FUNNY” and was featured in the Miramax Film, Next Stop Wonderland. He has performed at over 300 colleges and in a wide variety of venues from Nome, Alaska to Beijing, China to the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Tom’s appeal is truly international as he was summoned to London to tour and perform on British Television, and he won the Seattle International Stand-Up Comedy Competition, as the Boston Herald noted “winning by the largest margin of victory in the history of the event.” He has also been featured in dozens of television commercials, for products like McDonald’s, Doritos, Pepsi, and Amstel Lite, just to name a few. Tom’s star is rising quickly, CATCH IT!!
