Watch San Diego's Own Vicki Barbolak Win Over Heidi Klum on America's Got Talent

San Diego's own Vicki Barbolak is killing it on America's Got Talent. If you've ever been to The La Jolla Comedy Store or Mad House Comedy Club, chances are you may have seen Vicki perform. I go to a lot of comedy shows (my best friend is a stand up comic and my husband is an aspiring one) and Vicki is one of my favorite comics. Her comedy hits you out of nowhere and is so real. Vicki's comedy is in a lane of its own, and it's great to see her make it on America's Got Talent.

Last night on the show, Vicki did something that other comics have a hard time doing- she won over Heidi Klum with her routine about kids! Heidi told her, "You're my favorite comedian this year. A lot of times I sit here, and I'm like –(pantomiming a bored face)... With you, I'm literally laughing, laughing, laughing because you're so brash. You're kind of unapologetic, but you're so likable at the same time." 

Vicki burst into tears when the judges told her she made it through to the next round!! I really hope she wins that $1 million prize... Go Vicki! I can't wait to see what she does next week.
