LA Comedy Live is excited to announce that America’s iconic comedian, BERT KREISCHER, will bring his anticipated tour, to Singapore for the very first time on 9 September, 2017 at SOTA Concert Hall. Fans can expect to be in stitches with Bert’s hilarious and outrageous stories that define his comedy and exemplify what has made him one of the best storytellers of his generation.
Bert Kreischer is a standup comedian, who performs to sellout crowds across the US. Kreischer is also the host of US’s Trip Flip and Bert the Conqueror, and previously hosted Hurt Bert. He is a regular guest on The Joe Rogan Experience and The Rachael Ray Show and has appeared on Late Night With David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Bert did not really dream of a career in comedy, but instead was catapulted straight to it. While spending his years studying at the Florida State University, he was featured on an article on Rolling Stone magazine, calling him “number one partier in the nation.” This article attracted attention towards him: he was offered book deals, the morning show on a local radio station, and Oliver Stone optioned the rights to his life. This was the inspiration for the 2002 movie, Van Wilder. Despite not having comedy experience, he took the stage after three experienced comedians, and closed the show after thirty minutes’ worth of material. He then moved to New York to pursue a career in comedy.
Kreischer has appeared in television shows such as VH1’s Never Mind the Buzz!$#!#s, Comedy Central’s Shorties Watching Shorties, and FX’s The Shield. His segment on The X Show, “Hurt Bert”—which involved Kreischer getting, well, hurt—was spun-off into its own program on Current TV after gaining notoriety on the Internet, and being awarded Clip of the Year honors on E!’s Talk Soup. His one-hour special Comfortably Dumb appeared on Comedy Central and his book Life of the Party, Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child. Bert Kreischer currently hosts Bertcast, a weekly comedy podcast on the All Things Comedy network.
