Local 'Mind-Reader' on America's Got Talent Tonight
Eric Dittelman, a Westborough native and Grafton resident, is scheduled to appear on the talent show tonight, July 24.
If you're a fan of America's Got Talent, you likely saw Westborough native Eric Dittelman impressing the judges by correctly describing, while blind-folded, drawn images that were held over his head.
Among those he impressed? Howard Stern, who drew a self-portrait that Dittelman identified while blind-folded.
Dittelman, a "mind-reader" from Westborough who lives in Grafton, is one of 48 contestants competing for a $1 million prize.
The 27-year-old graduated in 2003 from Westborough High School. On his website, he wrote that he quickly became interested in improv and "all things comedy," and has had a "lifelong passion for mystery performance." While attending Ithaca College, he honed his skills on and around campus with various improv and sketch comedy troupes.
He is scheduled to perform live tonight on the talent show, which airs at 8 on NBC.

"Rehearsals are going well but y'never know what will happen until the judge's minds are actually in front of me to read," Dittelman wrote on the page.
