Comedian: Drew Lynch
Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, Old Main, Minot State University
Drew Lynch is a comedian with charming wit and genuine vulnerability. For Drew, becoming a comedian was almost as unintentional as capturing America’s hearts. Originally from Indianapolis, at the age of 19, Drew moved to Los Angeles with aspirations of becoming an actor; a dream he had since he was a kid. An unexpected softball accident just a year into his acting career left Drew with a severe stutter and crushed his hopes of ever performing again. Drew’s vulnerability in dealing with his stutter and making it relatable to real-life situations propelled him each week of the competition – advancing him to the finals and ultimately landing him first runner-up on season 10 of America’s Got Talent.
