Upfront, Inc. Presents: Preacher Lawson
Live Events | 05/22/2019 | 7:30PM
Preacher Lawson was born in Portland, Oregon, but raised most of his adolescence in Memphis, TN. He moved 20 times before the age of 10, but if you asked him what city he’s from he’d say Orlando, FL because that’s where he grew as a comedian.
Preacher started writing jokes when he was 16, then decided to perform for the first time a year later on a bet with his mother. It proved to be the best decision of his life.
In 2015, Preacher won the title of Funniest Comedian in Florida. In 2016, he was crowned the winner of the Seattle International Comedy Competition. He’s continued the wave of momentum on into 2017 and is on quite a roll this year so far, having made his television debut on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly followed by an appearance on Comedy Dynamic’s Coming To The Stage soon after. In 2017, Lawson made a big splash on NBC’s America’s Got Talent where he made it to the final ten contestants. He will next be seen on America’s Got Talent: The Champions which premiered on January 7, 2019.
