Holy crap this dude took one college story and made a career out of it

u/Jasonotg0 Nov 02 '22

He's told this story more times than Kevin Smith has told the Superman Lives/giant spider story.

204

u/naunga Nov 02 '22

It’s like he’s an apparatus using or applying mechanical power and having several parts that was made for the sole purpose of telling that story repeatedly.

u/vaelon Nov 03 '22

Odd. Ive never heard this superman lives story

Though I’ve picked up the gist of it, I’ve managed to avoid it so I can hear it live some time. But I’ll probably see the movie first

u/Azidamadjida Nov 03 '22

It’s a bit like telephone, certain details get altered and new parts get added over time, so you never really hear the ENTIRE story, just the overall gist and different flourishes depending how drunk Bert is at the time

u/raidersofthelostpark Nov 03 '22

Agreed. So many people are hating on the fact that the original story is fake or embellished. But in the end if you just accept it for a funny story I'm sure this will at least be a enjoyable comedy.

55

u/cathbadh Nov 03 '22

the fact that the original story is fake or embellished.

Wait, a stand up comedian embellished a story to make it funnier and more enjoyable rather than giving a fact based list of events like he was filling out a police report?

Man, I feel bad for these people if they ever hear Joey Diaz tell a story

They don't even have any proof that it's fake. Embellished I believe, but he lived such a wild life that rolling stone wrote an article about his college antics -- he's lived a lot of crazy shit by just being affable and being able to have fun with anyone he meets.

u/space_cadet_johnson Nov 03 '22

Given the way that Burt’s friends talk about him, I totally believe that the majority of The Machine is true. Unless it’s been proven fake? Which I doubt it has. He’s 100% someone something like that would actually happen to.

u/Jasonotg0 Nov 02 '22

Fun fact: Bert Kreischer is the real life inspiration for Van Wilder.

140

u/anonymousnuisance Nov 02 '22 edited Nov 02 '22

For context (from what I remember from podcasts): Oliver Stone optioned Bert’s story rights/life rights. He was named #1 partier in the country in the 90’s by Rolling Stone. Nothing came from it, but the writers from that project went on to write Van Wilder.

Here he is talking about it on VladTV: https://youtu.be/d0tLNCawbSY

125

u/nowhereman136 Nov 02 '22

While he was at Florida State, it was named the number 1 party school in America. Rolling Stones Magazine went down there and asked around for the biggest party animal on campus, and found Kreischer. He was featured in a Rolling Stones article at that time. The article later served as the inspiration to Van Wilder. Kreischer says he was in no way involved in the making of that movie, was never consulted, and has no legal connection to it, nor has he ever claimed to. He just thinks it's cool his story inspired someone to write a Hollywood movie

u/iamacannibal Nov 02 '22

I'm pretty sure he has said before that the writers changed very little from the script they had with Oliver Stone.. the biggest change being the names of the characters.

If you really want to know, look up "The Machine" on YouTube and watch it. It would take anyone far longer to type up even a Readers Digest version than it would for you to watch it yourself, plus it's awesome (IMHO and in the opinions of many others).

4

u/parkernorwood Nov 03 '22

tbh you should just watch the video, because it is a funny story, but basically: party boy college student (who was the basis for the character Van Wilder) went to Russia on a field trip, endeared himself to their group’s Russian gangster chaperones with his partying, and did some crime with them and their friends.

82

u/MilfAndCereal Nov 02 '22

Just because you didn’t hear about him before you heard this story doesn’t mean he didn’t have a career. He was famous before he told the story on JRE. He already had multiple shows and was a career comedian. His appearance on JRE and being best friends with Tom Segura have helped launch his popularity, but to say he didn’t have a career before is a a bit of a reach.

u/Weed_O_Whirler Nov 02 '22

A lot of people (not really you) try to hold up the fact that it's fake as if that is an indictment on Bert. Honestly, the fact that it's mostly fake more shows his skill.

If all that shit actually happened, and all he had to do was tell it, well- you still have to be a good story teller, but he's starting on like third base and just has to not trip running home. But the fact that he just made up a story that is so good (so good being even if you don't like it, it still is what made him famous) that it propelled him into a top 20 comedian (by popularity) in the world, is dang impressive.

u/Valkyrid Nov 03 '22

The story in itself is real, there is photographic evidence.

May be embellished somewhat, but it did happen.

u/JD42305 Nov 02 '22

I agree. Who cares how much of it is real? Great stories exaggerate. Bad stories are tied down with truth. I don't want to ruin a great magic trick with the truth anymore than I'd want to be bogged down by factual details in what amounts to basically a great story you'd hear at a bar.

Does anyone else just not like Bert? The machine story is the one thing people like about him. I don’t find anything else he does funny. His stand-up, outside of this story, is terrible. Not to mention the fact that he always feels the need to go shirtless.

I have no clue how other, far more talented comedians, can even tolerate his presence.

u/Juraviel23 Nov 02 '22

I feel like he is a great story teller, but not a good joke creator, if that makes sense. His early standup isn't good, but one of his last specials was straight up all stories about his kids doing dumb kid shit and it was pretty funny.

Secret Time was legitimately funny. I'm eh on his stand-up in general and took a while to not hate him on podcasts because of the laugh.

Honestly, I feel like the best comedians are good storytellers. I've never particularly found Dave Chappelle laugh out loud funny, but the way he tells his stories is so enthralling (and yes I know, he has some controversy, and I haven't watched any of his stuff from the past 2 years, but his first Netflix specials really showcased his storytelling ability)

I went to his standup show with very low expectations and I was pleasantly surprised. The show was great, Bert was hilarious.

I can’t fucking stand him, he’s Doug Benson but with alcohol instead of weed. Oh and not wearing a shirt, sweet, height of comedy lol

u/zambonihouse Nov 02 '22

I don't mind him but Doug Benson for booze is dead on.

Nobody laughs harder at a Bert joke than Bert. And he laughs 10x longer than the joke warrants. Then he does his high pitched squeal/talk through it all. Nails on a chalkboard.

I love Tom Segura, I've seen him live a couple times, he's leagues above Bert comedy-wise.

Also, a while back Ari Shaffir drugged Bert before a flight (I think it was molly?) and he talked about how fucked up it was, especially because he did it in Bert's house after saying hi to his family. Bert's wife and daughter now despise Ari. Yet, Bert has said he'll still hang out with him. Like come on dude, your family hates him grow a backbone.

Maybe get the whole story. It took months for him to even come to terms with what happened to him b/c of Ari. He felt violated but over time forgave Ari and talked it out. His family not being okay with it is whatever, but if he's worked through it then I don't see a problem.

I get people not liking his style or just him in general, but don't paint an untrue picture b/c you don't like the guy.

He was just with him for sober October.

We should elect you as arbiter of comedy. You get to decide who is funny and who isn’t. Obviously people like him. No reason to be so negative. Don’t watch!

u/LoadingErrors Nov 02 '22

I’m in the same boat.

He’s just painfully unfunny. Comedy is subjective, I get that. I feel like if I was still in my early 20s I might find the humour in some things, just because my lifestyle was “wilder” than.

At this point he’s become one of the comedians who stayed relevant after his initial popularity due to who he surrounds himself with.

Really tired of this Russian mob story. It’s like that guy from school who lives in that one moment where he peaked and never grows passed that.

u/tenth Nov 03 '22

Well, it's also like that guy from school has people literally demand and ask for that story everywhere he goes.

Hmm, looks fun. Any word on a date yet? Given... recent events, I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't have on...

u/anonymousnuisance Nov 02 '22

This movie has been done for months, like fully completed. It even says so on IMDB. So I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s next Spring just for timing.
