When Kreischer is not passionately discovering local adventures, traditions and thrills for Travel Channel, viewers can find him touring comedy clubs and colleges throughout the United States. Prior to becoming Travel Channel’s adventure-seeker on his first series for the network, “Bert the Conqueror,” Kreischer began his career at the Boston Comedy Club. His hilarious storytelling grabbed the attention of Hollywood A-lister Will Smith, who signed him to a television development deal. He has co-hosted FX’s “The X Show” and made his acting debut starring in the CBS/20th Century Fox pilot, “Life with David J'’ with Elliot Gould. Kreischer had his own stand up special, “Bert Kreischer: Comfortably Dumb,” and hosted Spike TV's “Fresh Baked Video Games.” His numerous television appearances include Comedy Central’s “Shorties Watchin’ Shorties,” FX's “Hurt Bert” and “The Shield,” and NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Kreischer has also guested on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Rachael Ray Show.”
Most recently, Kreischer penned the book, Life of the Party (St. Martin’s Press; on-sale May 27, 2014). A guidebook on how not to grow up, Kreischer shares some of his most outrageous stories and more. From his fraternity days, to his rise as a standup, to his marriage and first brushes with fatherhood, Kreischer takes readers down a path that may not be mature, but will be fun and guaranteed to make your jaw drop.
A Florida native, Kreischer attended Florida State University. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
