Ever since being crowned “The #1 Party Animal in the Country” by Rolling Stone Magazine in 1997, Bert "The Machine" Kreischer has made a name for himself as one of the most unpredictable and outgoing stand-up comedians working today. His antics throughout six years as an undergraduate at Florida State University have since become legend, and his life story was the inspiration for the 2002 film “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder.”
From 2000 to 2001 Bert co-hosted The X Show on FX, and in 2004 he got his own show on FX titled Hurt Bert, where he did stupid things like wrestling a bear, picking fights with professional martial artists, and being a rodeo clown for a day. After Hurt Bert he became a semi-regular guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast where he quickly made a name for himself as a captivating and hilarious storyteller, epitomized by his “Machine” story about mistakenly falling in with the Russian mafia during a college trip to Russia.
Recently Bert has become a familiar face on the Travel Channel, hosting the shows Bert the Conqueror & Trip Flip, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Last year Bert began hosting the acclaimed Bertcast podcast where he interviews fellow comedians and guests like celebrity chef Bobby Flay & comedian Bill Burr, and he’s also currently working on producing his own vodka brand. There’s no telling what Bert will be getting himself into next, but if the last fifteen years are any indication it’s probably going to be very funny.
