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.

    Story
    "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

    "Awesome"

    This story of man becoming a father had me laughing throughout the whole thing and crying at his realization of fatherhood. Great story that reminds me of some of my own life events and my hopes of how I can be in touch with my future wife and children. Awesome story Bert. Long live the machine!

    "a little emotions snuck in."

    this book was great. the audio version even better because of the style of Burt's reading. he even gets a little emotional tugging in towards the end of the book. that was something I did not expect and was not prepared for. hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

    "remarkable life. tears from all angles"

    I'm writing this review with tears in my eyes still after listening to Life of the Party. I started listening late last night, falling asleep laughing so hard I was crying. as soon as I woke up I had to finish it. I wish it had been 12 hours long Bert!

    I've heard a few of the stories before, but hearing them in great theatrical detail by Bert was a real treat. I laughed and cried and laughed and cried and finished crying and laughing.

    well done Bert. I HIGHLY recommend this audiobook.

    "Shouts"

    If you like this guy you will love this book. Also if u don't know this guy but love hilarious stories you might also love this book. Bert is insane and the book in audio form is basically like having a beer with a buddy while he tells you all the crazy shit he's been up to. Happy story after happy story. Pretty awesome
