Britain’s Got Talent: Teen comic Jack Carroll through to semi-final

Teenage comedian Jack Carroll has revealed his disbelief at making it through to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent 2013.

The 14-year-old funny man was chosen to progress to the next round following his hugely successful first audition in which he made Simon Cowell laugh before his routine had even started.

When asked what he was going to do for the judges Jack, who has cerebral palsy and uses a walking frame, told Simon that he was a gymnast.

His quick fire witty response and then his hilarious comedy routine made Jack a firm favourite with the nation.

Jack said: “I can’t believe that out of all these different people I’ve come this far.

“That were amazin’.”

Ahead of the decision Jack’s parents said: “To get to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent - the world’s your oyster then.”

And it isn’t just Jack’s parents who think the cheeky chappie has a bright future.

Jimmy Carr called the teenager “fearless, cheeky and funny” and tipped him for great things.

Jack has also had the support of comedian Jason Manford.

When he first auditioned fellow funny man David Walliams couldn’t get over the 14 year olds comedic timing.

He said: “Jack you are a comedy genius.

“I wasn’t as funny as you at 14, I’m not even as funny now as you are now at 14 years old.

“It was incredible. Every joke was a winner.”
