On America's Got Talent's season premiere Tuesday, comedian Drew Lynch didn't let his stutter keep him from winning over the audience and judges, especially Howie Mandel.

Lynch, 23, started stuttering at age 20 after he was hit in the throat at a company softball game. According to his website, "This life-changing injury sparked a passion for writing and performing stand-up, bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a newly found speech impediment."

After a set of jokes revolving around his injury, including a particularly successful one imagining what he would be like as the voice of a navigation system, Lynch received a standing ovation from the crowd and Mandel, 59.

"I believe you can turn anything into a positive, that's why I'm here," Lynch said, and the judges clearly admired this optimistic attitude.
