    My elderly parents spend the summers in a condo project geared for seniors. I visited them last Sunday and they told me that the entertainment act (they have live shows every week) was a comedian from AGT, Tom Cotter. "He was okay", they said, "but he went on too long". I thought they must be wrong but I looked it up and sure enough he played there.

    I couldn't believe it. This place has a little recreation hall that sits maybe 200 old codgers at best. He couldn't have been paid more than $200 or $300 tops. Didn't he come in second place on AGT just a couple years ago? He also appeared on Howard's show a few times. And wasn't he a Buchwald client? And this is what he is reduced to now! The power of AGT and Howard.

    Really, isn't the Stern show very similar to this in many ways.

    Watered down humor as to not offend anyone, and playing to a small crowd of people, where you started out playing to vast audiences.

    The Stern effect has now hit Stern himself.

    And you know Buchwald got his piece of the 200 Cotter made off the old people.

    I bet Howard also gets a cut somehow.

    That's actually a better gig than most of the AGT winners from Howard's tenure. The rest are appearing at rural county fairs or were never heard from again.

    What about the show on the Vegas strip and $1 million?

    Or what is actually a 1-week "best of AGT" at the Venetian and a 40 year annuity coming out to $25k before taxes

    Pretty funny, he went on Howard's show after AGT and talked about how his career had really taken off and he had multiple offers for development deals. Just like Howard with his imaginary job offers.

    I get the dude is a hack and really had no career as a comedian prior to AGT then even with Stern he gets exposure to at least 9 million people and still the guy has no career. What's also funny is Stern thinking he knows comedy like Johnny Carson has him on the radio show and tells everyone how funny he is, and still no career.

    And then a few years later, the stance is: I did it as a goof!

    That is hilarious. Lets look at the Olathe Dogs...Stern's first winners...they are appearing 9/23/2016 at the Central Washington State Fair. The rest of their gigs for the rest of the year...13 in total...are at various halls and small theaters around the country. Remember...this was the act Stern said would "be a headliner" in Vegas.

    I wonder what happened to that AGT contestant who pretended to be an Iraq War vet with a TBI.


    Fucking idiots never asked to see a copy of his Purple Heart or DD-214
