Meet Mitch Burrow: the Comedian Eyeing a Spot in the ‘AGT’ Live Shows
America’s Got Talent released a very interesting promo at the end of the last episode. It hints at which acts the judges were debating putting through to the live shows. Mitch Burrow’s name was on the board that the judges were using to pick the Top 36. Viewers never got to see Mitch’s audition and don’t know much about him. Who is this America’s Got Talent dark horse?
Comedian Mitch Burrow is on the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Judges’ Radars
Mitch is a funnyman originally from Georgia. He lived in a double-wide trailer growing up and has had such a full circle life journey since joining the Marine Corps when he was 18. It led him to move to Okinawa, Japan for a few years before he was deployed to Iraq. After his time in the Marines, Mitch began a career in manufacturing. He realized he had a true passion to make people laugh.
His job at Boeing required him to wake up at 4:30 a.m. and he would go perform comedy at night like a trooper. He eventually decided to pursue a full-time comedy career in Los Angeles after spending seven years living in Seattle. Mitch did admit that he would miss one thing about the Seattle comedy scene and that is all of the great comedian friends he made.
“I’ve become friends with the most diverse, unique, and talented group of people that I have ever known in my life,” he told City Arts Magazine. “They’ve helped a barefoot country boy see more of the world than he would have ever imagined growing up on a dirt road in rural Georgia.”
Mitch recently married his wife Leigh in early July. The couple welcomed a baby girl in April. After their wedding, Mitch wrote on Instagram that he “can’t wait to get back to LA and continue our journey as a family.” He has not made any mention of auditioning for America’s Got Talent on social media.
Will Mitch’s Comedy Experience Earn Him a Spot in the Live Shows?
In the early stages of his comedy career, Mitch frequently performed at Giggles. He looked up to comedians Andrew Sleighter and Emmett Montgomery. Mitch found most of his first gigs at clubs in Louisville and opened up for Rich Voss. He flaunted his comedic skills on the Fox show Laughs in several appearances. In one 2015 appearance, he joked that his credit card company suspected fraudulent activity when he went to purchase healthy foods.
Mitch also made appearances on The Bob and Tom Show and on the Armed Forces Network. He performed in the Great American Comedy Festival, a show that Joel McHale and Martin Short have performed at in the past. He was also named as a semi-finalist in the Laughing Skull Festival and has really become a comedy festival veteran. This led him to win the 2015 Trial By Laughter Competition.
At the height of the pandemic, Mich spoke in an interview about living in a four-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles with three other men. Maybe that was a part of his comedy routine that he performed for his America’s Got Talent audition. Mitch does have some stiff competition from veteran comedy duo, the Sklar Brothers, and the hilarious Cam Bertrand.
Since we haven’t gotten to see his audition all we can do is speculate. It is not known for sure if he will be named as a member of the Top 36. There have been many times in the past where contestants full auditions never aired. However, some of them still ended up earning a spot in the live shows. This applies to all talent shows, not just America’s Got Talent. Since the judges were considering putting him through, he obviously made them laugh and killed his audition.
