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.

    "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!

    "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

    "Bert Squirts"

    Bert is hilarious. Listen to his podcasts so that's why I preferred to get the audiobook rather than the physical copy. Was not disappointed.

    "Bert gets sidetracked often lol"

    Although Bert gets sidetracked often, his stories are endlessly entertaining. Could have been more too the ending though.

    "GREAT STORIES"

    Bert is hilarious and his stories are beyond epic. The Tracy Morgan bit is better then any other person could convey.

    "Hang out with Bert while he tells you stories"

    Bert makes it feel like he's just telling stories while he's hanging out with you and not just like he's reading a book.
