New York native Harrison Greenbaum, 30, is competing on America’s Got Talent, Season 12. He was a student at Harvard when he first tried stand-up comedy. There he co-founded Harvard’s Stand-Up Comic Society (aka Harvard College SUCS). Greenbaum now headlines comedy clubs across the country. He has won numerous awards (The Andy Kaufman Award in 2010) and had a one-man show at the famous Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. America’s Got Talent isn’t Greenbaum’s first appearance on primetime TV either. In 2015, he competed on Last Comic Standing (Season 9), where Roseanne Barr told him, “I just love you. You’re fantastic.” She also told him he was brave for telling bible and fat jokes.
Greenbaum is also a member (one of the youngest to be inducted) of the legendary New York Friars Club, home of the equally legendary roasts. While performing at the Friars Club in 2013, Greenbaum found himself being heckled on stage and responded well. Below is a clip of Greenbaum destroying the heckler. Warning: adult language. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
