A collection of outrageous stories by the stand-up comic, TV host, and inspiration for the movie National Lampoon's Van Wilder.
Bert Kreischer doesn't know how to say "no". If he did, he wouldn't have gotten himself mixed up with a group of Russian mobsters on a class trip to Moscow, earning him his nickname "The Machine". He wouldn't have wrestled with a bear or swum with sharks on national television. He wouldn't have (possibly) smoked PCP with a star of Saturday Night Live. And he wouldn't have been named the Number-One Partier in the Nation by Rolling Stone, inspired the movie National Lampoon\'s Van Wilder, or performed standup to sellout crowds across the country.
The stories Kreischer shares in Life of the Party are a guidebook on how not to grow up. From his fraternity days at Florida State University, to his rise as a standup, to his marriage and first brushes with fatherhood, Kreischer shows you a path that may not lead you to maturity or personal growth. But it will lead you to a shitload of fun.

The fact that he is reading the book is perfect, since he's the only one who can tell his story right. He adlibs and makes side comment, it's great! He deserves everything he has.
Everything, even though I've heard a lot of the stories already, it's well done and well executed. A lot of audio books dint hold my attention as much as this one did. Stand Up tabs, this is a must have!
it is definitely better then the print version just because of all the extra tid bits bert throws in as he reads it it hilarious
life of the party can't be compared to anything it has a life of its own in a universe of its own where bert is king and court jester
my favorite scene starts at the beginning and ends at the end lol its one gigantic laugh fest
if you haven't read the print version get both the print and audiobook and if you have the print version you have to get the audiobook bert throws in small tid bits and extras through out the book and anyone familiar with bert kreischer will not get disappointed you will laugh your ass off
Bert delivers it in this book, whatever it is. From all the funny and exciting parts of his life, to the sad and embarrassing ones as well. Even lending his voice to make the listen that much better. A must have for a comedy fan.
I found Bert via a radio show Preston and Steve in Philly and have been listening to his podcast since. He is hilarious and disgruntled but what I like about him compared to his contemporaries is he has a heart too.
Checked this book out solely on the recommendation Doug Stanhope gave it on his podcast, it was endlessly entertaining. Comedians are great story tellers and Burt's tales are hilarious.
Life of the party by Burke Kreischer is a must read book this year. There are so many situations where I tend to get bored with the person they chose to actually read the book. When listening to life of the party I did not press pause ones virtually takes you on a jury through his past and talks about some of the experiences that made him the hilarious person whom he is today. Contemplating getting this book? Contemplate no longer. get it. you will not regret it
It's no surprise this book was red so well by Bert considering his amazing storytelling abilities. He conveyed every young man's fear of wondering how the transformation from immature teen to responsible adult, plagues our thoughts through the years. I found this book surprisingly inspiring considering Bert himself and the title. At least reassuring, if Bert can make it from Party Animal too responsible father then that gives the rest of us a decent chance as well. Thanks Bert
