In March, Kreischer released his highly anticipated 5th stand-up special, Razzle Dazzle on Netflix. Shameless — and shirtless — as ever, Bert spills on bodily emissions, being bullied by his kids, and the explosive end to his family's escape room outing. His stand-up specials, Secret Time, The Machine, and Hey Big Boy are currently streaming on Netflix, as well.
As if that wasn’t enough, Kreischer started this summer off as the star and producer of the Legendary/Sony Pictures film, The Machine, which premiered exclusively in theaters across the country on May 26th. The film, based on his signature stand-up set, recounts his true experience with Russian mobsters while on a booze-soaked college trip. Now, 23 years later, that trip has come back to haunt him as he and his estranged father (Mark Hamill) are kidnapped back to Russia by the mob to atone for something they say he did. Together, Bert and his father must retrace the steps of his younger self (Jimmy Tatro) in the midst of a war within a sociopathic crime family, all while attempting to find common ground in their often fraught relationship.
Additionally, Kreischer just wrapped the second annual Fully Loaded Comedy Festival that hit sixteen of the most iconic ballparks and arenas across the country. Bert is taking Fully Loaded to sea in the fall with the Fully Loaded at Sea Cruise October 27th-31st from Miami with stops in Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau, Bahamas. The highly anticipated event is already sold-out.
Kreischer will continue his Tops Off World Tour on September 14th at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC and continue through December. In addition to being named “one of the US’s top stand ups over the past decade” by The Guardian, Kreischer is a world-renowned top podcaster hosting Bertcast, where he shares his wisdom and life with fans and has recorded over 500 episodes. He co-hosts Two Bears, One Cave with Tom Segura, which consistently charts in the top 10 comedy podcasts worldwide. Bert hosts the YouTube cooking show, Something’s Burning, which has gathered close to 10 million views. On social media, Kreischer boasts impressive numbers, totaling 12.1M followers and subscribers across all platforms, and over 183,898,825 total views.
