Ryan Niemiller American Got Talent (AGT)

Ryan Niemiller will present his comedy act to a celebrity panel on episode 2 of America’s Got Talent Season 14 which airs tonight on NBC 8/7c. America’s Got Talent hasn’t provided many previews of his run on the show yet, but he’s likely to do well, considering the success of past comedians with similarly unique takes like Season 10 runner-up Drew Lynch, who developed a vocal stutter after a baseball accident.

Ryan Niemiller Biography

Ryan Niemiller incorporates his disability into his act. He told Stream of Caitlinness that his arms give him a unique talking point in the comedy world. “I’d say it’s 80/20 advantage to disadvantage. My arms make me unique,” he explained. “I can guarantee there are no other comedians just like me in the world. I’m not just a late 20’s single white guy comic. I have something that helps me stand out, a hook if you will (pun intended). I have something I can immediately bring the audience in on.”


Niemiller also credits his arms with getting him into stand up comedy in the first place. Speaking about how it has helped him in comedy, he said; “I’d like to say [I would’ve still been a comedian], but honestly, I doubt it. I developed a sense of humor as a defense mechanism. I’d make all the jokes before anyone else had a chance to. If I was ‘normal,’ I doubt that would have ever developed the way it did. I’d probably be an accountant or something equally lame. Ha ha.”

“I make money off it. I travel the country telling jokes about it, and then they hand me a check afterward” the comedian added. “For me, it’s hard to get much better than that. And recently, I’ve just started cutting out a lot of the negative energy in my life. So if you’re not with me, you’re against me. That’s how I own it.”

Ryan Niemiller Praised by Fellow Comedian, Drew Scott


In a recent interview with Indy Star, fellow comedian Drew Scott praised Niemiller and his bravery onstage. “I can’t tell you one thing he’s asked for help doing when I’ve been around him,” he said. “He’s more functional than I am, and I have both of my hands and arms… He has to address it, but he’s not a ‘shtick’ act. He doesn’t just do material about his arms. He addresses it because if he doesn’t that’s what the audience is going to wonder about the entire time.”
