Teenage Stand-Up Comedian on the Autism Spectrum Has Us In Stitches


Leo Lytel is a 16-year-old stand-up comedian.

Leo, who lives in Washington, D.C., was diagnosed with autism at age 2, Syracuse.com reported. His diagnosis was later redefined as Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS).

Now, the star-on-the-rise, who has been performing comedy since he was 13, has made a splash during his first appearance on the NBC show “America’s Got Talent.” His comedy routine centers around being a self-proclaimed “awkward high school student.” He got the judges and the audience laughing and now he’s been voted through to the next round.

Check out Leo’s hilarious routine in the video below:
