Strapping fireworks to your body and jumping up, down and around while they shoot into the air might not be considered high comedy, but if you’ve ever performed in the San Francisco or Seattle comedy competitions, then you probably have met or encountered Wally Glenn. Glenn has been the longtime web guru behind both operations and for a time also crunched the numbers for comedians’ scores.
He also performs at Burning Man and elsewhere as Pyro Boy. It’s in this capacity that Glenn showed up on this week’s “Extreme” edition of auditions for NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Judge Howard Stern compared him to a superhero. A superhero in a bizarro universe, but still.
