Drew Lynch thanked the fans for support and said that all of them couldn’t wait to be slayed by Zerdin’s humor. Oz the Menatlist expressed his congratulations saying that Zerdin deserved to win and said he was his biggest fan. 

Telegraph critic Mark Monahan vetted for Zerdin at his appearance at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival saying that one doesn’t need any particular penchant for ventriloquism to recognize that Paul Zerdin is a class act. He called Paul’s technique exemplary.

Before appearing on AGT, Zerdin, has already been a former children’s television presenter in the UK. He first performed as a magician on the BBC’s Tricky Business before going on to host Rise And Shine for GMTV, having been inspired to go into ventriloquism a decade earlier when a family friend made him a puppet theatre, with which he put on shows at the age of 10.
