    Lynch grew up in Las Vegas with dreams of becoming a film actor. He graduated from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts, well-known for being a “chatterbox.” However, a year ago at a company softball game, Lynch was hit in the throat with a softball, paralyzing his vocal chords and causing his once fluid speech to turn into a stutter. He was inspired to turn this life-changing injury into something positive and found a new mission in life: to make people laugh.

    Now, Lynch is on the road performing at comedy clubs and colleges throughout the U.S.
