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
:) :) :)
Life of the Party is something I'd listen to multiple times, the story itself as well as the delivery by Bert Kreischer as the narrator are both very entertaining all the way through.
I like that everything in this book are about true events that have taken place in the author's life.
The classic Bert Kreischer delivery to any good story he tells.
This man's comedy is gold, see his stand-up if you can.
Hysterical, Storytelling, Comedy
His storytelling ability of things that have actually happened in his life.
His performance. Being a stand up comedian, and these being long-winded jokes I honestly could have read the book and imagined it in his voice, but to hear him perform it makes it for me.
It made me laugh so hard numerous times that I cried.
absolutely! Bert has great stories and has a great time telling them.
The machine story is great.
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.
It is very engaging.. It is very hard to stop in the middle of a chapter
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.
Best Audiobook reader ever!!!
I love the way you lived your youth Bert
he is real
comedy is truth
well done Sir
Super funny and even better that Bert is the one reading it. Made me laugh a ton but probably worsened my drinking problem.
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.
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.
Bert gets into the stories, riffs a little and of course his signature laugh
"Usually crazy, often hilarious, genuinely interesting"
Bert is not only a great story teller but also a great guy. Check out his podcast, the Bertcast you shant be disappointed people.
