A collection of outrageous stories by the standup 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.

    Nice, quick and distracting read. Enjoyed it very much growing up in Florida at the same time.

    I can honestly say I loved this book. It was the first time I have ever laughed out loud reading anything. It happened early and often during this story. "I am the machine……"

    After doing my first ever book preorder and weeks of anticipation- Bert didn't disappoint. This book is full of hilarious stories told only the way Bert can tell a story. If you are a Bert fan you will have heard much of this before- but that's ok. I could hear "The Machine" story every day and still roll with laughter. I actually think having heard him tell it before helped- It was like Bert was in my head reading me the story! If you are not familiar with Bert this is a great way to get to "know" him. Loved it and would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, fun read! Each chapter could stand alone so great if you have to squeeze your reading in when you can.
  • Must read!

    I picked this book up on the first day it came out(today). I am about half way done now and put the book down just to wipe the tears of joy away and write this review. I saw Bert's standup recently and since then I have been hooked. This book is probably the most hilarious book I have ever read and will ever read. He really is "The Machine"!

    Just listened to his episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend. It was a great episode and made me order this book the second it was done.
