During Blake’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent 2022, judge Simon Cowell was so impressed with his performance that he gave him the golden buzzer. His stand-up routine included jokes about his decision to name his newborn daughter Pfizer because she was born during the pandemic, as well as funny bickering arguments with his partner.
After a difficult few years in the pandemic, Simon stated that the show “needed acts like him.”
Judge David Walliams said: “A comedy superstar is born tonight on that stage. So funny. You made it all seem so effortless and you’ve got a wonderful, so likeable personality, and everything you said was brilliantly funny and original”.

After professional singer Loren Allred sailed through to the next round, many viewers complained that they were “tired of professionals getting [the] golden buzzer.”
“No, this is a joke, he already has his own show and tours,” one viewer joked on Twitter. Axel’s semi-final act was another success, as he received a standing ovation from the judges.
