Comedian Preacher Lawson is probably most widely recognized for being a finalist on last season’s America’s Got Talent. While he lost to ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, he still increased his fan base significantly. Having moved over 20 times before he was 10 years old, he quickly figured out that no matter where he wound up in the United States, being funny was the best way to connect with people and make friends. These days he unabashedly likes himself, which is why he has his own picture as his phone’s screen saver. A girl he once dated accused him of being conceited. “How am I conceited if I have a picture of me on my phone?” he asks an audience. “That’s’ like walking into a house and saying, ‘Man, you’ve got pictures of you and your family everywhere.’” His popular YouTube channel features shorts highlighting cooking and travel tips. 18+; 21+ later shows.
