Who is Kreischer?
This 47-year-old actor, comedian and reality TV host was born in Tampa, Florida, and nowadays is a person who has a lot to say about the popular topics.
He is one of those people that you can either love or hate, but one thing is for sure – he does not hold back. The comedian attended Florida State University and was part of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. Even though his college was ranked as a party school, Kreischer showed the world that you can become rich, powerful, and famous no matter your background or the college you attended.
Bert majored in English, but as he says, he didn’t like the career options he had right after graduation. One thing that he was always interested in was entertaining, and he decided to try out his luck in this industry. The first time he experienced comedy in front of a live audience was in a nightclub in Tallahassee called Potbelly’s. Bert says that he fell in love with the adrenaline and the audience’s reactions, so he decided to move to New York and pursue this as a full-time career.
Soon after, he was booked by an agent and he started performing in the Boston Comedy Club. It is said that from that time, his career took off, and now, he is one of the most famous comedians around the world.
When it comes to his acting career, Bert has been a writer of different episodes of some famous TV shows, including his own Netflix specials. He’s been an exclusive producer of half a dozen shows, and he’s acted in the same number of movies and shows. Even though his acting career is not as good as his stand-up comedy one, people say that he is going to go even further in life.
Bert’s private life is as good as his career path, and he’s been married to LeeAnn with whom he has two daughters. He talks about his family a lot in his comedy shows, and LeeAnn is mentioned pretty frequently. Even though some of the jokes the comedian makes are more than many can digest, it is sure that he loves his family very, very much.
Until now, the well-rounded comedian has had two Netflix specials, Secret Time that was first released in 2018, and Hey Big Boy that was published earlier this year. Both shows have spiked a lot of interest in the audience, and this has helped Bert build an even bigger fortune.
How much money does he have?
Besides being an actor and a comedian Kreischer is also an author, and in 2014 he published his book named “Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child”. Alongside all of these projects, he runs a successful podcast that launched back in 2012.
As you can see, this man is everything but lazy, and all of his hard work paid off. It is estimated that he weighs more than 3 million dollars and his fortune is still rising. According to follownews.com, the comedian makes about 30 grand per month, which adds up to almost 400,000 dollars per year.
On his website, you can choose if you want to support him and buy some of his merchandise, DVDs, and even posters, but even if you are not up for it right now, you have to visit his site and see how personality reflects in everything he does.
