UPDATE — 9:54 pm ET
Taylor was just voted to the final six!
Last summer, comedy fans were thrilled to see a stand-up comedian place second on NBC’s nationwide talent show, America’s Got Talent, when Tom Cotter became the first comic to advance to the finals. Comedian Taylor Williamson may be the next to proceed to the Final Six on tonight’s first week of finals results show. Many comedians were given significant consideration this season after Cotter’s overwhelming success on the show. We even saw some familiar names like Angela Hoover (Inside Amy Schumer) and Jim Meskimen (Park and Recreation). Audiences voted last night. Tonight they will announce the remaining six finalists who will perform next week for a $1 million prize. Tune in to NBC tonight at 9 pm ET to find out if comedy stays alive. You’ll also see Cotter make an appearance. In the meantime, check out the young Los Angeles comedian’s sets from the season thus far.
