JJ Pantano Insults The ‘AGT’ Judges

JJ, who appeared on Australia’s Got Talent last year, had the judges surprised when he first started talking. Simon Cowell said he expected him to be a singer. Instead, JJ shared what he had discovered while researching the judges.


He said there are “five hairdressers, three makeup artists, a wardrobe department, and a whole team of nutritionists” on the show, “and that’s just to maintain Simon’s new look.” That’s right, he went there!

He also compared Alesha Dixon to Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys, and marveled at the fact that Howie Mandel has appeared in 40 movies, even though he hasn’t heard of any of them.

Meet Australian comedian JJ Pantano.

Who Is This Hilarious Kid Comedian?

JJ Pantano earned the Golden Buzzer on Australia’s Got Talent last year, and made it to the semifinals. Now he’s bringing his comedy to the American stage in the hope of being named the ultimate Champion.


“It means the world to me to be on American television,” JJ said in a video introduction for next week’s episode. “I didn’t really ever think that this would happen. So, like, to imagine that it’s actually happening … it’s a dream come true.”

We’ll have to wait until Monday’s new episode to find out if JJ will make it to the next round. The judges certainly seemed to like him, despite his insults.
