Schwartz owns a website, RejectedJokes.com, dedicated to the one-liners that didn't make it into his on-air work.
Schwartz made The Blacklist in 2011 with his adapted screenplay of behind-the-scenes showbiz comedy "Soapdish" (1991).
"The way I started, I just really wanted to do entertainment and I wanted to write and act so badly that I tried every single avenue at the beginning to try to hit it. I knew that if I failed at the beginning I wouldn't be able to do it. I didn't let myself be lazy for a second." Schwartz quoted on Complex, Jan, 12, 2012.
Schwartz has published three books, Grandmas Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals, Why is Daddy in a Dress: Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals and Maybe Your Leg Will Grow Back: Looking on the Bright Side with Baby Animals.
