Meet Bert Kreischer
Bert Kreischer is a comedian, author and — since his college days — a master of 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. Bert found his way to Travel Channel in 2009 and stands among the network’s most popular hosts. He is currently the host of Bert the Conqueror and Trip Flip.
When Bert 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. Before becoming Travel Channel’s adventure-seeker on his first series for the network, Bert the Conqueror, he 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, co-starring Elliot Gould. Bert 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. Bert has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Show With David Letterman and The Rachael Ray Show.
More recently, Bert wrote the book Life of the Party (St. Martin’s Press, 2014). In this guidebook on how not to grow up, he shares some of his most outrageous stories and more. From his fraternity days to his rise as a stand-up comic to his marriage and first brushes with fatherhood, Bert takes readers down a path that may not be mature, but it will be fun and guaranteed to make your jaw drop.
A Florida native, Bert attended Florida State University. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
