Piff The Magic Dragon’s unique brand of deadpan comedy and magic once again slayed the judges on Tuesday’s “America’s Got Talent.” Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Piff is a magician-comedian who, well, wears a dragon costume, and his sidekick, a dog named Mr. Piffles, does too. He was guest judge Neil Patrick Harris’ Golden Buzzer pick during the Judge Cuts round last month. Then, during the quarterfinals, Piff’s irreverent brand of humor had the panel divided, but now all four judges thought his semifinal performance merits him a spot in next week’s finals.

So, what did Piff pull off this time? Well, it’s actually hard to explain. It involved a toaster, multiple card tricks, and an unexpected “trip” to Las Vegas to pick up Mr. Piffles. And like the best of “Monty Python,” the judges were left both entertained and amazed, and they all gave a standing ovation.

“Sir, you’re not only a dragon, but you slay. And that’s what every comic should be doing,” said Howie Mandel.” You make us laugh, you leave us in wonder… I believe you can make it to the finals. You are brilliant, you’re one of my favorites, really.”

Howard Stern said, “Let’s talk finals. Now we’re cookin’. I told you I wanna see Gary the comedian in the finals; the second act of the night I wanna see in the finals is Piff the Magic Dragon.” He went on to tell the contestant, “You were bringing your A game tonight. For me, you’ve got to go to the next level. America must vote for you. You’re phenomenal.”

Check out the full video of Piff’s semifinal performance below. Do you think he’ll make next week’s finale?
