Bert Kreischer is a brash comedian who seems immune to the mellowing effects of age. Unwaveringly committed to a hard-partying persona (which served as the partial inspiration for the 2002 comedy National Lampoon’s Van Wilder), Kreischer has been chugging beers and bellowing jokes for some 20 years, bounding across the comedy landscape like a perpetual college freshman in search of the next house party. That said, judging from his recent Netflix special, Bert Kreischer: Secret Time, the exuberant comic has found a more reflective side in the responsibilities of marriage and fatherhood. Kreischer might still command the stage with bare-chested bravado, but his ruminations on family have sanded some of the edges off his compulsive hedonism. Kreischer remains an irrepressible storyteller with a confessional bawdiness that is devoid of polite sensibilities. Such immodesty has propelled him into a wide variety of pursuits, most recently Something’s Burning, an online cooking-themed comedy show, and his popular BertCast podcast.
