Baltimore Backstage: Baltimore-born comic aims to make finals of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ dance classes bring wellness to Inner Harbor, family inspires local film project

August 31, 2022

In this week’s peek into Baltimore arts, we chat up a Baltimore-born comic who is hoping to move on to the finals of “America’s Got Talent”, learn how line dancing saved a Baltimorean’s life and go behind-the-scenes of a film set in Charm City. The audience and judges gave comedian Mike E. Winfield a standing ovation after his first performance on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in late May. “They were literally chanting my name,” the Baltimore-born comic said. “It was more like an out of body experience… When I walked back, Terry Crews [the show’s host] was like ‘Do you feel it? Do you feel your life changing at this very moment?’ I was so struck by everything happening I was like, ‘I don’t know.’”
