    Not to distract from the great charity this is benefiting, I just wanted to voice that I didn’t agree with Wendy Liebman being on America’s Got Talent since she had had Comedy Central specials in the past, and I met Drew Lynch, nice guy, making the best of his circumstances, but again, he was on America’s Got Talent when his brother is a successful comedian who also has specials. I just thought it was an abuse of the AGT platform.
