(Homestead, FL) You might be hard pressed to find four artists more different in their art forms, personalities, and even place in history. Although we’ll never have the opportunity to see the four of them together, they will still share the Seminole Theatre stage this November as part of the Seminole Showcase Series.

November 11th 8:00pm – Homestead Laughs Featuring Drew Lynch: Lynch is a comedian best known as the runner up on season 10 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”. Drew becoming a comedian was almost as unintentional as capturing America’s hearts. Originally from Indianapolis, at the age of 19, Drew moved to Los Angeles with aspirations of becoming an actor; a dream he had since he was a kid. An unexpected softball accident just a year into his acting career left Drew with a severe stutter and crushed his hopes of ever performing again.
But his continued drive to become an entertainer forced him in a different direction, often reflecting on the “softball that humbly changed his life and gave him a career”. Drew’s vulnerabilty in dealing with his stutter and making it relatable to real-life situations propelled him each week of the competition – advancing him to the finals and ultimately landing him first runner-up on season 10 of America’s Got Talent. Drew attributes much of his success from his ability to be honest, genuinely facing the “elephant in the room” head on. Inspired by comedians Bo Burnham, Louis C.K, he now headlines Comedy Clubs across the country.
