NEW ZEALAND TOUR 2019

BERT “The Machine” KREISCHER, the American stand-up comedian, actor and reality television star, is coming to New Zealand for one show only at Auckland’s Town Hall on Saturday 15 June 2019.

Fresh off the acclaim of his Netflix special Secret Time, Bert Kreischer, lauded as one of the best storytellers of his generation and with his ability to prove “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age” (Forbes), has announced his global Body Shots World Tour will launch in January 2019 in the US.

Described as having a “rare and incredible talent” (Interrobang), Bert has evolved from being named Rolling Stone’s 1997 "Number One Partier in the Nation" to one of the top names in comedy. Between his two previous stand-up specials, The Machine on Showtime (2016) and Comfortably Dumb on Comedy Central (2009), selling out venues on tour, his podcast: Bertcast, his YouTube show: Something’s Burning, and his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child (2014), Bert has succeeded in finding the elusive blend of “being a cringe comedian with real insight” (Interrobang).

“I just got a full blood panel back and my liver is healthy,” Kreischer said, prepared. “I can’t wait for this tour.”
