Preacher Lawson: Best Day Ever!

Friday, May 10, 2024

Preacher Lawson was born in Portland, OR, but spent 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. 

 Lawson is best known for his appearance on season 12 of NBC’s hit series, “America’s Got Talent” (2017) where he made it to the final round. Based off his stellar performance in season 12, Lawson was invited to compete on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” (2019) and “Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions” (2019) where he advanced to the finale after receiving the most fan votes. Most recently he was handpicked by Howie Mandell to participate in “America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League” (2024). Lawson filmed his first stand-up special, “Get To Know Me,” which premiered on BET+ in 2019, then Amazon. His most recent special, “My Name Is Preacher,” is set to be released globally on YouTube on March 14th 2024. 

In Television, Lawson can be seen on HBO’s “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” “I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson,” “Tournament Of Laughs” on TBS and NBC’s “Connecting” as a series regular. He also hosted the Facebook Watch series, “World’s Most Amazing Dogs” (2019) with George Lopez and Lisa Vanderpump. He can be seen on “The Tonight Show” talking about his fame recognition and MMA fight.  

Lawson has built a massive following on TikTok of 3.4 Million followers. His YouTube channel has amassed over 640,000 subscribers and features clips of stand-up, MMA training and even vegan cooking tips!
