On This Night, America’s Got Foul-Mouthed 12-Year-Old Talent

One. Two. THREE blatant dick jokes. That was the gist of 12-year-old White Plains, NY Orthodox Jewish teen Josh Orlian‘s first-ever public stand-up comedy performance. And the AGT judges loved it.

Howard Stern commended Orlian for “not losing the audience,” while Howie Mandel – who could be heard most notably during the performance laughing loudly from the judges’ table – suggested that at least the teen has some good footage for this fall’s Bar Mitzvah.

Orlian invited the judges to attend that bash. He will be back for at least one more America’s Got Talent performance, even though at press time, the majority of YouTube commenters are a lot less impressed with the Grade 6>7 moonlighter than Stern, Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum.
