POCATELLO – Comedian Drew Lynch from “America’s Got Talent” will perform at 7 p.m. March 13 in the Idaho State University Stephens Performing Arts Center Jensen Grand Concert Hall.

The performance, recommended for those 18 and older, is sponsored by the ISU Student Activities Board.

Originally from Indianapolis, Lynch moved to Los Angeles at the age of 19 with aspirations of becoming an actor. While living in Los Angeles, a softball injury left Drew with a severe stutter, limiting his chances of acting in front of the camera.

Determined to move forward, Lynch turned to stand-up comedy and in 2015, he captured the hearts of America with his Golden Buzzer performance on Season 10 of “America’s Got Talent.” His performances landed him in the finals where he finished in second place. Since then, Drew has guest-starred on IFC’s “Maron,” and landed his late-night debut on Conan.

Lynch has amassed a YouTube following of more than 1.6 million subscribers and has become a dynamic content creator. His channel is the home to his own original animated series, popular vlog, comedy sketches and collaborations with major brands and influencers such as Cesar Millan and HelloFresh. Currently Lynch is developing a feature film based around his life and comedy.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets purchased in advance are $15 for the general public and $5 for ISU students. Tickets at the door are $20 for the public or $10 for ISU students. Tickets are on sale online at isu.edu/stephens, can be purchased over the phone at 208-282-3595, and can be purchased in advance in person at the Campus Connection desk in the Pond Student Union. Tickets can be purchased at the door and in advance at the Stephens Center Box Office.
