Funny white men. The worlds comedy dens are saturated with them, so its really hard to stand out. But comedian and reality-TV host Bert Kreischer gets noticed right away. Way back in 97, Rolling Stone named him the Number One Partier in the Nation. The mag wrote a six-page article about him and his boozehound ways as well as the six and half years he spent at Florida State University. Um, weve spent plenty of years in bars and no one is calling us for an interview. Bert, youre a badass.
Since college, Kreischer has been recognized for a clip from his short-lived FX reality gig The X Show where he gets his butthole waxed. (It was featured as The Soups Clip of the Year.) He has also gotten props for his theory that Dora the Explorer is secretly a racist coyote who sneaks friends across the border. He has a new Travel Channel show, Bert the Conqueror, and hell be at the Miami Improv this Thursday at 8:30 p.m., with performances through Sunday.
