Josh Orlian, a 12-year-old Modern Orthodox boy from White Plains, NY, had the judges of “America’s Got Talent” bent over with laughter with a stand-up comedy audition Tuesday night that was deemed “naughty, naughty, but nice.”You can watch the entire clip below:
Audience members covered their mouths in shock at the confident tween’s unexpectedly smutty performance.
In one joke, Orlian, wearing a skullcap, said that after attending circus camp, he wanted to learn “sword swallowing,” but his mother objected. To which, he said, his father replied: “I’m not surprised. Your mother hasn’t been interested in sword-swallowing since we got engaged.”
His yarmulke-clad father, standing on the sidelines, was asked how Mom feels about the jokes.
“She just heard them for the first time,” he replied.
The judges — Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B. (the Spice Girl) — invited him back to the next level. “You’re 12 years old and you’re talking about all that dirty stuff. I like it!” Mel B. said.
“If nothing else you’ve got a great piece of tape for your [bar mitzvah] reception,” Mandel said, offering a “mazel tov” with his decision to vote in favor of sending Orlian to the next level.
My, oh my how far we have fallen on the cultural front, thanks largely to Josh Orlian's fellow tribe members' influence and control over the mass media, educational establishment, and "entertainment" industry. How much lower can or will we go?
