The Captain and Maybelle from "America's Got Talent 2011" are one of the Top 48 acts in Season 6 of the NBC talent competition series. They are a variety act from Atlanta, Georgia.

The Captain has had a love for sideshow and circus entertainment since his youth. After graduating high school, he set out from his hometown of Douglasville, Georgia, and explored the country. He eventually got into the body modification industry but never forgot his love of sideshow. After opening and running two successful tattoo studios in South Carolina, he met and fell in love with Maybelle and moved back to his hometown to start his family.

Working at a tattoo studio paid the bills, but the Captain wanted more. Thus began his pursuit of fulfilling his childhood dream of being a circus performer and using his skills as a body piercer in his act. While most wives would balk at the thought, Maybelle not only gave her blessing but also jumped in feet first alongside the Captain and became part of his act.

The Captain and his wife Maybelle currently reside in Georgia with their two daughters, Payton and Ava, and their basset hound, Hoss. The Captain works full time as shop manager at a tattoo studio and has been a body piercer since 1994. Maybelle is a full-time homemaker and attends college in pursuit of her marketing degree.
