Recent alumnus on America's Got Talent

July 23, 2012

The accolades keep rolling in for comedic alumnus Jacob Williams’11, who made it through another round of America’s Got Talent last week. The comedian is now headed into the televised talent show’s upcoming semifinal round.

Since the Terrarium last reported on Williams earlier this summer, he’s been through rounds of performance in Las Vegas and, most recently, a live show in Newark, N.J., offering up performances that everyone from the celebrity judges (Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern) to the live audience to the press have deemed hilarious.

After his most recent performance (see that episode here), Stern told Williams (see the whole elimination episode here) that “America did get it right. You didn’t crack under the pressure…you were funny. We’re potentially looking at a million-dollar act.”
