From the venue:
Originally from Indianapolis, Drew Lynch moved to Los Angeles at the age of 19 with aspirations of becoming an actor. While living in Los Angeles, a softball injury left Drew with a severe stutter, limiting his chances of acting in front of the camera. Determined to move forward Drew turned to stand-up comedy and in 2015, he captured the hearts of America with his Golden Buzzer performance on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent. His Performances landed him in the finals where he finished in second place. Since then, Drew has guest-starred on IF’s Maron, and landed his late night debut on CONAN. Drew has amassed a YouTube following of over 1.6 million subscribers and has become a dynamic content creator as his channel is the home to his own original animated series, popular vlog, comedy sketches and collaborations with major brands and influencers such as Cesar Millan, and HelloFresh. Currently Drew is developing a feature film based around his life and comedy.
In 2015, Drew Lynch captured the hearts of America with his Golden Buzzer performance on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent. “The person I was before would probably never hangout with who I am today” is the statement that resonated most in capturing audiences across the country, as they fell in love with Drew’s charming wit and genuine vulnerability every week of the competition. “Do something every day that scares you,” is a motto Drew lives by.
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.
But his continued drive to become an entertainer forced him in a different direction, often reflecting on the “softball that humbly changed his life and gave him a career.” 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. Drew attributes much of his success from his ability to be honest, genuinely facing the “elephant in the room” head on. Drew performs at comedy clubs across the country.
Since his success on America’s Got Talent, Drew’s career has come full circle and he has broken back into the acting scene. Drew recently garnered a recurring role on the Marc Maron Show, has appeared on “Dr. Oz,” and as a celebrity guest on the game show “Idiot Test.” He is collaborating on a book, and ultimately becoming the actor he always dreamed of, with a now different and enlightened perspective on who he thought he was, and who he is today.
