TOM COTTER (America’s Got Talent – Season 7 Runner-up)


Even before his historic runner-up finish on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Tom Cotter (RIGHT) was already one of the most prolifically funny comedians in the country. Yet, in the time since his standout performances on that show, he has only continued to hone his craft, treating audiences across the United States and around the world to a tour-de-force of homespun satire and side-splitting wordplay. Tom earned his chops winning the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the grand prize at The Boston Comedy Festival and was voted “Best Stand-Up” at The Las Vegas Comedy Festival. Today, he remains a familiar face from appearances on late night talk shows, in countless broadcast and cable comedy programs, and in his own original comedy specials. Yes, Tom’s got talent. And he’ll give you a belly ache from laughing to prove it!



With his innocent and friendly demeanor, Mitch Fatel (LEFT) quickly engages the audience and then catches them off guard with a mixture of mischievous dialog and off-color comments. While laughing at observations only Mitch can get away with, we are left wondering if he truly understands what he just said. We never really know.

Mitch has been showcasing his talent to rave reviews for 30 years now. His resume, too extensive to list in its entirety, includes 2 Comedy Central specials (one of which was voted #6 all time by viewers) and 3 best-selling CD’s. He has appeared on almost every Late Night Comedy Show and in 2006 he took home honors as the Best Comedian at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. He has a new 1 hour special set for release in winter 2020/2021 and he currently co-hosts the PUNCH-lines Podcast ( which studies and dissects the psychology of stand-up comedy.
