Meet Bert : Bert Kreischer's Bio

Travel Channel host and resident fun-seeker Bert Kreischer will serve as host and help facilitate the judging at the end of Best of the Road road rally adventure.

When Bert Kreischer is not passionately discovering local traditions, thrills and competitions for Travel Channel, viewers can find Kreischer touring comedy clubs and colleges throughout the United States. Prior to becoming Travel Channel’s adventure seeker on the series Bert the Conqueror, Kreischer had a long-term career in comedy going back to 1998, working at the Boston Comedy Club. Within a year, he grabbed the attention of Hollywood A-lister Will Smith, who signed him to a television development deal. Kreischer cohosted FX’s The X Show and made his acting debut starring in the CBS/20th Century Fox pilot Life with David J.

In 2009, Kreischer had his own stand-up special, Bert Kreischer: Comfortably Dumb, and hosted Spike TV's Fresh Baked Video Games. His television appearances include Comedy Central’s Shorties Watchin’ Shorties and Reality Bites Back, 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.

In Travel Channel’s new series, Trip Flip, premiering in June 2012, Kreischer surprises unsuspecting American vacationers by throwing away the guidebook and taking them off the beaten path. It’s the vacation they never saw coming.

A Florida native, Kreischer attended Florida State University. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
