Meet Bert Kreischer



Gabriela Herman

Bert Kreischer is a comedian, author and – since his college days – has mastered the art of fun. For the past 15 years, he has been entertaining audiences throughout the world as he journeys from city to city with his unique brand of comedy. Kreischer found his way to Travel Channel in 2009 and stands among the Network’s most popular hosts. He is currently the host of the third season of Travel Channel’s series Trip Flip, as he finds random people on the street and invites them on an all-expenses-paid adventure where everything, including the destination, is a surprise.

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.
