Tom Cotter, this just-ended season's runner-up on "America's Got Talent," will be live on the show, talking about his road to celebrity.
Tom has appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," and "Last Comic Standing." In 2003, he filmed his own half-hour special for "Comedy Central." In 1994, he won Seattle's International Stand-Up Comedy Competition. He gained his first success in the Boston comedy scene, where he is still a favorite, and also won the grand prize at the Boston Comedy Festival and was voted Best Stand-Up at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. Additionally, Cotter has worked in film, theatre, and television productions and, as of 2012, he was working on an idea for a book.
In 2012, Cotter appeared on season 7 of NBC's "America's Got Talent." He was given a pass to Las Vegas by the show's three judges, Howard Stern, Sharon Osborne, and Howie Mandel. He further advanced to the top 48 (quarterfinals) to perform in the live episodes in Newark, New Jersey. On July 10, 2012, he performed a stand-up routine making fun of common clichés and phrases, and advanced to the semi-finals. On August 28, 2012, he presented the judges with a list of subjects and asked judge Howie Mandel to pick one. Mandel picked "College", and Cotter then gave a short comedy set on the subject of college and teenagers. He advanced to the final round of six and ended up being the runner-up of the season.
Currently, Tom is performing in Las Vegas at the Palazzo nightly.
