Bert Kreischer on balancing comedy, partying and fatherhood
Bert Kreischer is a comedian who's one part party animal, and one part family man. A lot of his comedy revolves around his wife and two teenage daughters, but back in 1997, Kreischer was in his sixth year at Florida State University when he caught his first taste of fame.
Rolling Stone profiled him as "the top partier at the Number One Party School in the country." From there, Kreischer launched into stand-up comedy, and his frat boy persona became the basis for the Van Wilder movies.
He blew up online when his story about Russian gangsters taking him under their wing went viral, and went on to host a series of travel and adventure shows.
Kreischer joined Tom Power to talk about his family and his reputation as a partier, his new Netflix special Secret Time, and the Rolling Stone story that changed his life.
