“America’s Got Talent” is on its 14th season, and features judges Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough.

If you’d like to see part of Schwartz’s act, posted a preview of the performance.

The article says Schwartz is “a little bit like the human embodiment of that Debbie Downer sketch from ‘Saturday Night Live,’ with Rachel Dratch subbed in for the world’s driest, beardiest man.”

Find out Tuesday night if Schwartz moves on to the next level. The show airs at 7 p.m. Central time.
