Bert Kreischer’s career has evolved from earning Rolling Stone’s 1997 “Number One Partier in the Nation,” to one of the top grossing stand-up comics in the business. In 2022, Pollstar listed Bert as #4 in the “Top 10 Highest Grossing Tours,” performing to sold-out arenas around the globe. He is currently on his 2023 Tops Off World Tour.
As one of the best storytellers of his generation, Kreischer seamlessly and sincerely shares anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while proving “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age,” (Forbes).
On March 14, Kreischer released his highly anticipated 5th stand-up special, Razzle Dazzle on Netflix. Shameless — and shirtless — as ever, Bert spills on bodily emissions, being bullied by his kids, and the explosive end to his family’s escape room outing. His stand-up specials, Secret Time, The Machine, and Hey Big Boy are currently streaming on Netflix.
As if that wasn’t enough, Kreischer tops off this summer as the star and producer in the Legendary/ Sony picture film, The Machine, exclusively in theatres across the country on May 26. Kreischer rose to fame as a stand-up comedian known as The Machine, and in his signature set, he recounts his true experience with Russian mobsters while on a booze-soaked college trip. Now, 23 years later, that trip has come back to haunt him as he and his estranged father (Mark Hamill) are kidnapped back to Russia by the mob to atone for something they say he did. Together, Bert and his father must retrace the steps of his younger self (Jimmy Tatro) in the midst of a war within a sociopathic crime family, all while attempting to find common ground in their often-fraught relationship.
On June 14, Bert will kick-off the second annual Fully Loaded Comedy Festival at sixteen of the most iconic ballparks and arenas across the country. The biggest comedy event of the year with a “Fully Loaded” line-up that includes Bert Kreischer, Mark Normand, Shane Gillis, Tiffany Haddish, Stavros Halkias, Fortune Feimster, Dave Attell, Lewis Black, Jim Norton, Andrew Santino, Big Jay Oakerson, Jay Pharoah, Dan Soder, Chad Daniels, Ralph Barbosa, Rosebud Baker and Tammy Pescatelli.
In addition to a successful stand-up career, Kreischer has made himself a world-renowned top podcaster with his popular comedy podcasts. Bert hosts Bertcast where he shares his wisdom and life with fans and has recorded over 500 episodes. He also co-hosts the podcast, Two Bears One Cave with Tom Segura, which is consistently charting in the top 10 comedy podcasts in the world. In addition to the podcast, Bert is the host of the YouTube cooking show, Something’s Burning that has gathered close to 10 million views.
