Jordan Conley is a stand-up comedian from Garden Grove, California.

He made his open-mic debut when he was just 18 years old but had to walk away from comedy, as he had no way of making his way to comedy gigs. However, after purchasing his first car six years later, he made the change to pursue comedy and has never looked back.

Conley also shared that ahead of his America's Got Talent audition, when he first started out, his family was not always supportive, sharing his parents would "would still try to talk him out of my choices and explore other occupations other than stand-up comedy."

However, after his first comedic performance, his parents changed their minds and have been his biggest supporters ever since.

He is no stranger to the comedy club circuit, headlining several comedy clubs, and has appeared in notable comedy series including Jonny Loquasto: Physical Therapy, Vows, and Under Wraps 2.

Conley also has his own YouTube channel where he posts hilarious videos from skits about breakfast to delivering an Ironman sermon.

A lot of Conley's comedy addresses his love for his family, friends, superheroes, movies, Disney and more.

For example, at his first America's Got Talent audition, Conley's routine centered around the fact he was a child of two military parents who wanted him to follow in their footsteps but he would be the worst marine known to man.

Conley received a unanimous four yeses from the judges and a standing ovation, with judge Howie Mandel comparing him to the likes of Kevin Hart, adding: "People are going to say, 'I love Jordan Conley!'"

Simon Cowell added: "You are super, super talented. You really cracked me up. This was a really, really good audition. I like you a lot."

Conley's time on the America's Got Talent stage did not stop there. He later made a cameo appearance in Siegfried and Joy's magic act.

Celebrating the news about his wildcard win, Conley posted on his Instagram story and main page a screenshot of the news, with the caption: "WE DID IT!!!!LETS GOOOO!!!! #agt #agtauditions."

He also posted a hilarious video, where he screamed "We are going to the live shows! We did it, we made it through."
