Bert Kreischer's Trip Flip on The Travel Channel

Albert “Bert” “The Machine” Kreischer is an American stand-up comedian, actor and reality television host. In 1997, he was featured in Rolling Stone as the “top partier” at Florida State University, the “top party school in the US”, while he was in his sixth year of college. The Rolling Stone article was the inspiration for the 2002 movie Van Wilder. From 2000 to 2001, he was the co-host of the FX Network variety show, The X Show. A segment that aired on the show, “Ass Wax”, where Kreischer had his hair removed with hot wax, led Kreischer to gain his own show on the FX Network, titled Hurt Bert, in 2004. In the same year, he had a role in an episode of the police drama The Shield.

Kreischer claims that on a college field trip to Russia, he drank with the Russian mob and even participated in a robbery (while intoxicated). He talked about these exploits on April 5, 2011, on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast #95.

In 2010, he became the host of the Travel Channel reality show, Bert the Conqueror. In the show, he is an “every day guy” who travels across the United States to amusement parks and other entertainment venues to experience and promote various roller coasters, water rides, and unusual sports.

On January 19, 2011, Kreischer appeared as a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience and revealed that the story of National Lampoon’s Van Wilder was loosely based on his own life. After the Rolling Stone article was written about Kreischer’s “party” lifestyle, he had gotten the attention of Oliver Stone, who had wished to develop a film based on his life. Upon receiving numerous script submissions, the deal had apparently fallen apart and all the writers had retained the intellectual rights to their work. One of these writers had supposedly changed Kreischer’s name on their script and sold it to National Lampoon which eventually became the basis for Van Wilder. He also revealed this two years earlier on the Jay Thomas Show on Sirius Satellite Radio.

Currently Bert is the Host of the popular reality travel show Trip Flip on the Travel Chanel where random vacationers get the trip of a lifetime with Bert if they drop everything and go.

Bert Kreischer has also started his own successful podcast called “Bertcast”.
