Doogies Got Talent

07/09/2010

For those readers who may not be aware, local comedian DOOGIE HORNER has been making his way through the ranks of this season’s Americas Got Talent.

Doogie is a familiar site here locally, where in addition to performing standup all over, he’s run the MINISTRY OF SECRET JOKES and is a regular panelist on THE BULLY PULPIT. He’s also made a name for himself creating hilarious flowcharts.

Doogie made his first appearance on AGT a few weeks back, and faced down a very hostile crowd. He won the hearts of Howie and Sharon, and they put him through to Vegas.

For the last few weeks, we’ve been excited to see him during Vegas week. First to see if he got through, but also just to get to see him actually tell a few jokes. Well, we’ hit Vegas week… so what happened?

Doogie’s going to Hollywood!

Congratulations Doogie, we look forward to seeing more of you on AGT and beyond!
