9. "Big Cell Phones" by Preacher Lawson
Slide 5 of 5
Preacher Lawson rose to popularity during his outstanding competition in Season 12 of America’s Got Talent.
In this performance clip from the live show, you witness the mind-blowing energy and physicality that Lawson brings to every performance. In many of his standup routines, Lawson shows his comedic genius by ad-libbing with hecklers and interacting with his audience members. He never misses a beat.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, this fast-paced performer quickly rose to fame in just the last few years, but has been writing jokes since age 16. In his performances, Lawson shares honestly about the difficulties of his past with a father who left him at an early age and a period of life where he was homeless.
However, this resilient and incredibly talented human being has emerged all the more determined to continue his journey toward stardom as he uplifts audiences with hilarity and wit.
10. "Men and Women Texting" by Tim Hawkins
Tim Hawkins is a multi-talented Christian performer who has thrived in the comedy industry for nearly twenty years. The short segment above about the differences between him and his wife’s texting patterns will undoubtedly have you guffawing.
Hawkins’ clean and clever output is a myriad of hilarious voice inflections, facial expressions, and mannerisms, and includes creative bits about family life. He also commonly produces parodies of popular hit songs like this one. Hawkins’ relatable commentary on life as a husband and father of four homeschooled children is perfectly relevant for all of us staying home to flatten the curve of COVID-19.
You can also hear more from Hawkins in his interviews and comedic reflections from his podcast, “Poddy Break.”
