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 were to ask 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. After his AGT appearance, Lawson shot his first stand-up special, GET TO KNOW ME, which premiered on BET+ in 2019.
Lawson has built a massive following on TikTok of 3.2 million followers. His YouTube channel has amassed over 600,000 subscribers and features clips of stand-up, MMA training, and even vegan cooking tips! He recently completed his residency hosting AGT Live in Las Vegas and continues to perform his PG-rated comedy at sold-out venues around the country.
