America’s Got Talent’ welcomes ventriloquist Jack Williams and his bunny puppet Foster on stage during Tuesday’s upcoming episode. In the short video, the 25-year-old performer wows the judges by poking fun at his “good buddy” while adding patter and a few surprises to his performance. Williams, who has been performing for 12 years, has 1.1 million followers on TikTok and is looking to take his performance to the next level.
The Indianapolis native joins fellow season 17 ventriloquist Celia Munoz and hopes to follow in the footsteps of past “AGT” ventriloquist winners Darcy Lynn (Season 12), Paul Zerdin (Season 10) and Terry Fator (Season 2) who inspired him. “I want to do it live in Las Vegas,” Williams told judges Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandela.
Part of the grand prize of the talent competition is headlining performances in Las Vegas. Tune in to America’s Got Talent on June 14th to hear from the judges and see if the puppet and puppeteer make it to the next round.
