According to his website, he was a contributing writer on seasons 11 and 12 of MTV’s Wild ‘N Out and, in 2019, he won the Florida’s Funniest competition, beating out 300 comics and becoming the youngest to ever win.

Also in 2019, he became the youngest comedian to record a half-hour comedy special, Sophisticated Ignorance, on the YouTube comedy channel DryBar, according to his website.

Bertrand told the Tampa Bay Times in an email that he’s feeling “nervous, excited, anxious, and thrilled all in one... It’s definitely a lot, it’s life-changing. America’s Got Talent is such a huge platform, I just want to do well, make my mom proud, and hopefully be able to get her out of debt. That’s the goal. Everything else is just kinda a bonus.”
