Greg Morton On AGT Tonight

Woodstock comedian Greg Morton on America's Got Talent

Set your P-V-R's tonight as comedian Greg Morton of Woodstock will be on America's Got Talent's live episode.

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock comedian Greg Morton is set to appear on tonight's live episode of America's Got Talent.

He will be among the 33 contestants performing during tonight's round.

Morton says he's excited about the opportunity.

"Now that this is my third time at it, it's not as crazy as it was before. I kind of know what the process is, I know what they expect and I know what I'm going to do. I'm kind of in this slot where I'm the guy that makes all the funny noises, I'm the impressionist. And that's my lane, I got to stay in that and do my thing. And that's what makes me unique from everybody else."

Since being featured on A-G-T, Morton says the support from back home has been great. He says he will be returning to the Friendly City to do another fundraiser for College Avenue Secondary School.

And since appearing on the show, Morton says his profile has raised.

"I've had somebody approach me already from Las Vegas. A club that I already know, The Laugh Factory, and the guy there he really wants me, he'd love for me to have my first residency there. I've had an agency contact me about voice work, I've had a lot of cool gigs come in. Somebody called in the other day from Dubai wanting me to do a corporate (event) and another one is a baseball half-time show."

He has been a stand-up comedian for nearly 40 years and he says it feels good to get some recognition.

Morton praised his competition as well, including 10 year-old opera singer Emanne Beasha.

"All of the kids are good, they're amazing and that's why I'm so encouraged about the future. These young people coming up are so fabulous, I got to meet all of them."

The show starts at 8:00 pm on Citytv.
