Bert Kreischer Early Life
Albert Kreischer Jr. was born and was raised in Tampa, Florida. His mother was an early childhood development specialist, and his father was a real estate attorney. He attended a private Jesuit high school before enrolling at Florida State University (FSU). Kreischer majored in English and was a member of the fraternity Alpha Tau Omega.
Bert Kreischer Early Career
During Kreischer’s sixth year at FSU, The Princeton Review rated the university first in their annual ranking of the top “party colleges” in the United States. Later that year, Kreischer was the subject of a six-page feature in Rolling Stone, in which he was dubbed “the top partyer at the Number One Party School in the country.” The essay, titled “Bert Kreischer: The Undergraduate,” described Kreischer’s partying antics, which included spells of heavy drinking and public nudity. According to the Rolling Stone story, Oliver Stone has optioned the rights to Kreischer’s life. When the development arrangement with Oliver Stone fell through, all of the submitted scripts were returned to their writers. The script was sold to National Lampoon by one of these writers, who changed Kreischer’s name. This inspired the 2002 film National Lampoon’s Van Wilder, starring Ryan Reynolds.
Kreischer told the New York Post in 2014 about his role in the film: “I’ve never seen it before. I have absolutely nothing to do with it.” Kreischer discussed how National Lampoon execs verified to him that he was the inspiration for the film on Joe Rogan’s podcast. He also stated that he would never sue National Lampoon for making the film without his input.
Bert Kreischer Net Worth & Career
Kreischer got his start in standup comedy at Potbelly’s, a pub and club in Tallahassee, Florida. Kreischer relocated to New York City after a tape of one of his acts was provided to a headhunter, who invited him to witness some standup events. Kreischer worked the front door of the now-defunct Boston Comedy Club.
Kreischer is well-known for his shirtless stand-up humor. He is also recognized for his narration; his most well-known anecdote is how he allegedly gained the moniker “The Machine.” The plot revolves around how he unintentionally assisted the Russian mafia in robbing a train while on a school trip to Russia.
Kreischer appeared on the DVD release National Lampoon Live: New Faces – Volume 2 in 2004, alongside four other comedians. That same year, one of his stories appeared on a scene of the Comedy Central production Shorties Watchin’ Shorties. Kreischer has performed as a professional comedian all around the world and has been on late-night television shows such as Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan. From 2011 to 2015, he also appeared frequently as a guest on Rachael Ray. This DVD release increased Bert Kreischer’s net worth and propelled his future career.
Bert scored a lot of success when he was cast in the VHI show “Never Mind the Buzz!$#!#s,” followed by Comedy Central’s “Shortie’s Watching Shorties.” This led to appearances on the NBC reality show “Last Comic Standing,” followed by a return to FX for an episode of “The Shield.” Kreischer later became more active as a stand-up comic, returning to his roots on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend.” He also rose to prominence on the reality show “Reality Bites Back.” Bert had a very busy professional schedule, yet he was always making people laugh wherever he went. Further, his success on TV increased Bert Kreischer’s net worth and strengthened his future career.
The nation’s number one partygoer has a wealth of life experience. He understands what it’s like to commit to a schedule that keeps fans interested, and while he’s kept his sense of humour, he’s put in the time, effort, and miles on his body to ensure that he’s accomplished his objective. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to keep up with his insanely busy schedule, yet audiences would never know if he was exhausted. Most people are unaware of what happens behind the scenes. Most successful professionals did not become wealthy by simply sitting on their hands or partying away their money.
Bert has also contributed to his fortune through the proceeds from the selling of his book. In 2014, he released a book titled “Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child.” This became a well-known literary work, and sales were excellent. Readers reacted well to the book, and it also opened a new professional door for him. It was the ideal introduction to his weekly podcast, which he dubbed “Bertcast.” In addition to all his media work, he has written a book that contributed to his net worth.
