'America's Got Talent': Goth Comedian Brought to Tears When All the Judges Love His Set
These Acts SUCKED And Simon Is NOT Happy!! - America's Got Talent 2018can
When Oliver Graves took the stage on Tuesday's America's Got Talent , the year-old goth performer surprised the judges when he revealed that he'd be doing stand-up comedy for his audition. Throwing out well-crafted one-liners in the vein of comedy giants Steven Wright and Mitch Hedberg, Graves skillfully lampooned online dating, horoscopes and self-deprecation in a stand-up routine that was brilliantly served by his dead-pan delivery and unusual style. From the first joke, he'd already won over the audience, and the standing ovation he received at the end of his set took Graves by complete surprise. Cowell echoed Mandel's sentiments, sharing, "We have had a lot of stand-up comedians this year. Now, when I look back and try to remember them all, they all blur into one type, apart from you.
At least one comedian always makes it to the semi-finals, typically. However, a comedian has yet to win AGT. There have been numerous comedians as runners-up over the previous 12 seasons, but typically singing acts come out on top. This can either work for them or against them, depending on the material they perform. He certainly is a memorable performance!
There is also the fact that a lot of comedians are depressed , and a lot of them are stand-up ones. One goth comedian, however, does not hide his sad face behind the laughter and jokes— he makes a joke out of it instead. A post shared by simoncowell on Aug 3, at am PDT. The thing is, Simon actually liked Oliver Graves and his depressed and self-depreciating emo jokes. The whole Goth get-up also did make him stand out from the rest. Oliver was even brought to tears backstage where he thought that people would not like his performance. Props to Oliver for taking quite a big leap with his dark and depressive humor.
