In August 2013, AGT asked Tom back to perform as a special guest star (along with Train) and then again to host The Season 8 AGT Snapple Viewing Party.

Tom is also a regular on Fox TV’s “Red Eye” and recently co-starred on an episode of CBS’ “The Good Wife.”
Tom has performed at over 300 colleges and in a wide variety of venues
from Alaska to China. His appeal is truly international as he was summoned to London to tour and perform on British Television, and won The Seattle International Stand-Up Comedy Competition and Boston Comedy Festival as The Boston Herald noted “winning by the largest margin of victory in the history of the event.”
Versatility has allowed Tom to excel in other areas of showbiz as well. His voice has become a familiar staple in commercial voice-overs for many high profile clients including NBC, MTV, Pepsi, McDonald’s, Chevrolet and Converse.
Whether it be comedy, voice-overs, or acting Tom Cotter gives it everything he’s got. “If laughter is the best medicine, I yearn to be drugged.”
