Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child | [Bert Kreischer]

Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 machine!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Life of the Party to be better than the print version?

    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


    What other book might you compare Life of the Party to and why?

    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


    Which scene was your favorite?

    my favorite scene starts at the beginning and ends at the end lol its one gigantic laugh fest


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    hell yes


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Great stories. Bert is a very funny guy."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    absolutely! Bert has great stories and has a great time telling them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The machine story is great.


    What about Bert Kreischer’s performance did you like?

    Bert admittedly struggles reading through some of what he wrote without laughing. In other context this might not be ideal for an audiobook but it adds to the fun of hearing all of his stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is very engaging.. It is very hard to stop in the middle of a chapter


    Any additional comments?

    This is not just stories from his podcast. Some of them come up from time to time in episodes but these are in much greater detail and worth a listen.

    What did you love best about Life of the Party?

    Super funny and even better that Bert is the one reading it. Made me laugh a ton but probably worsened my drinking problem.

    "Get This Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Life of the Party the most enjoyable?

    Even if you don't know Bert from his multiple TV shows or Podcast and appearances you will surely get a kick out of his stories. Bert has lived a wonderfully chaotic life where his search for acceptance, a good time and often just ignorance (meant in the best way) have put him into situations that are usually crazy, often hilarious and genuinely interesting.


    What other book might you compare Life of the Party to and why?

    I dont read or listen to many [audio] books but I could compare this slighty to Carollas book in that the story telling is quite well done.


    What about Bert Kreischer’s performance did you like?

    Bert gets into the stories, riffs a little and of course his signature laugh


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Usually crazy, often hilarious, genuinely interesting"


    Any additional comments?

    Bert is not only a great story teller but also a great guy. Check out his podcast, the Bertcast you shant be disappointed people.

    I listened to the book in one day. Bert was hilarious, and his stories were great. Great comedy book, and well read (and occasionally improved).

    "Greatest Audio Book Ever"
    What made the experience of listening to Life of the Party the most enjoyable?

    Bert is hilarious and reads his book in a way no one else could have. His laughter is contagious and the additional details he adds are the best. I listen to Bert's podcast and his appearances on JRE so I've heard most of these stories but listening to them uninterrupted from Bert's own mouth is simply the best.

    The people at my office officially think i'm crazy because of how much I was laughing while listen to this book.

    "bert Kreischer is hilarious"
    If you could sum up Life of the Party in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Life of the Party?

    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!

    "Definitely will make you laugh"
    If you could sum up Life of the Party in three words, what would they be?

    one big party


    What other book might you compare Life of the Party to and why?

    tucker max type stories with recounts of his past adventures usually involving large amounts of alcohol


    Have you listened to any of Bert Kreischer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    if you like his comedy, you'll like this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Full of good laughs. At some points along the way it does seem as if he is just rambling but definitely worth a listen.

    "Hilarious...not just repeat stories from podcast"
    What did you love best about Life of the Party?

    Bert's narration just brings his lovable personality through the speakers. Makes you wish you were his best buddy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bert of course. Of course that dude from his honeymoon seems like a fun guy.


    What does Bert Kreischer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His laughs.....and his off the page comments....especially when you finish the book at the end.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed the whole time listening. Finished this over 1.5 days of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    So glad he decided to do an audiobook. A second book is a must and yes, I will preorder that one too.
