The first Golden Buzzer has now come in from America’s Got Talent — with that, why not learn more (fittingly) about Learnmore Jonasi?

We will admit that this is one of those instances where you could see the buzzer coming from a mile away and honestly, we’re not mad. He spoke ahead of time about how Terry Crews was one of his idols for the way in which he made people laugh. There was an instant bond between the two, and then the comedian from Zimbabwe came out and legitimately made people laugh. His set was really good, but the same goes for his physical comedy.

One of the best things that any comic can do on a show like this is pretty simple: Give you a point of view that is unique and different from anything that you’ve had a chance to see before. Jonasi leans into his upbringing and his past in a way that makes you feel so welcome — also, he generates countless laughs in the process. He’s one of the most unique performers we’ve had in this genre for a while, and it’s so nice that he got Terry’s Golden Buzzer and a one-way ticket to the live shows.

Now, a lot has been said over the years about the fact that there has never been a comedy act who has won this version of the show. While we’d love to sit here and say that this is going to be the one to change things, that depends mostly on two different things: The rest of the lineup, and then also what the next couple of sets are going to look like.

Unfortunately, the live shows are months away — it’ll be a good while before we get to see what he does moving forward.
