Kristal conversed with the judges with the use of an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter and told, Cowell and co. that they were inspired by the other disabled comedians such as the 2015 AGT runner-up, Drew Lynch. Kristal didn’t require their translator for the actual set and they were able to hit it off instantaneously with the crowd, who couldn’t have been much more receptive. The main theme of Kristal’s set surrounded their rejected application to work for the Coco Foundation, which was the team who looked after the late Koko, a.k.a. ‘The sign language gorilla’.
Even the infamously famous hard-to-please Simon Cowell was enamored with her performance, giving them a very confident ‘yes’ to both Kristal and their interpreter, Julie.

In addition, they provide $4 to $55 drinkware, wall art, bedding, face masks, phone cases, and pillows. These are available on the artist’s official website, which is listed in the Instagram bio.
