Unfazed by the result of a softball accident which left him with a stutter at the age of 20, Drew Lynch continued to chase his dreams of becoming an entertainer. The American stand-up comedian had his eyes set on a stellar career in acting before the accident happened but instead of crying over spilt milk, the aftermath of the accident motivated him to encourage others to think positively in any situation. He also became a comedian and has been very successful at it, both on stage and YouTube where he has more than 1.6 million subscribers.
He is mostly remembered for his appearance on the tenth season of America’s Got Talent. During his audition to enter the talent competition, he impressed the judges with Howie Mandel pressing the Golden Buzzer for him. Lynch eventually took the second position behind Paul Zerdin, a ventriloquist. Read more facts about the stand-up comedian below.
