“Tom is a quick-witted comic whose success on America’s Got Talent was well-deserved,” said Jeri Misler, managing director of the Gracie Theatre. “His humor is timely and hilarious; nothing is off limits.”

Last year, Tom Cotter became the first comedian to reach the finals of NBC’s "America’s Got Talent" (AGT). The show catapulted him to the comedic stratosphere. Rolling Stone magazine said of his AGT performance, “Cotter was a smash. His jokes were effortlessly witty, his timing was exact and, above all, he looked completely at ease.”

Before his historic run on the world’s largest talent competition, the New England native was a familiar face on television shows like "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," NBC’s "Last Comic Standing" and a "Barbara Walters Prime-Time Special," among many others. Along with his wife and fellow-comic Kerrie Louise, he starred in his own WE reality series called "Two Funny."

Since moving to New York City, Tom filmed his very own Comedy Central special, "Comedy Central Presents...Tom Cotter." He was also featured in the Miramax film, "Next Stop Wonderland."

Opening the evening is comic Karen Morgan, a former trial attorney who began her professional comedy career as a finalist on Nickelodeon’s "Search for the Funniest Mom in America." Since then, Karen has performed in comedy clubs and performing arts centers around the world.

Tickets for the show are $20.00 each and are available at GracieTheatre.com or by calling 207-941-7888.
