Bert Kreischer is definitely a name that fans of stand-up comedy are certainly aware of. He is active on Twitter. He has his three podcasts: Bertcast; Two bears, one cave (with Tom Segura); and Bill and Burt (with Bill Burr). He has been working as a stand-up comedian since 1997. In addition to his podcasting and comedy, he also hosts a reality TV show.
Bert Kreischer has hosted the FX series Hurt Bert, which was based on a series of segments before The X Show of him who does stunts. What you would really know him from is his work with the Travel Channel, where Bert Kreischer had two shows: Bert the Conqueror and Trip FlipNow, though, Kreischer has taken to Twitter to announce he’s making the switch to features, honey.
The machine on the big screen
This Legendary feature film is based on Bert Kreischer’s most popular stand-up routine “The Machine” and features Mark Hamill (Star Wars) to play Bert’s dad. According to Deadline, the project is described as “The hangover meets Midnight Run The machine is a genre-bending comedy inspired by Bert’s real-life adventures and the subsequent breakout stand-up routine “The Machine”. “
The movie apparently serves as a sort of sequel to “The Machine” routine. According to Deadline, the plot of the film is “Bert’s drunken past catches up with him 20 years later when he and his father are kidnapped by those who wronged Bert 20 years ago while drunk during a college semester abroad in Russia.” Apparently, ‘The Machine’ is about the moment when Kreischer accidentally got involved with the Russian mafia in college.
Sounds good because you’ve been drunk during your semester abroad, my husband. You can view the original stand-up bit above.

What else do we know? The machine
In Bert Kreischer’s Twitter announcement for The machine, which you can see above, he goes to Serbia to film the movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Peter Atencio, covering episodes of Key & Peele along with the movie Keanu, is set to control this function. Excellent choice for a director, tbh. Key & Peele is great and Keanu is hugely underrated as a buddy comedy movie.
Kreischer produces The machine with Judi Marmel. Mark Hamill announced his involvement in the film on Instagram. He also posted the video to Twitter, which you can see below. Apparently he wasn’t expecting Kreischer’s form of comedy, which largely boils down to being shirtless and drinking. As he says, “Well, I’m still marginally excited about this project.” There is also a puppy !!!!

Hamill is joking, of course. Still, it is hilarious to watch. He even retweeted Bert Kreischer’s Twitter announcement, saying, “Some would consider making a movie based on your bizarre life story a form of rehabilitation.” To which we say, yes sir, we absolutely agree with that statement. Mark Hamill probably has some really, really, really weird ones to share.
At the moment, the casting of Mark Hamill and Bert Kreischer together with the director is all we know The machinePresumably Legendary will release a cast list one day, but who knows when that will happen. At the moment we don’t have a release date for it The machineBut we suspect that Kreischer will also reveal that bit of news on Twitter.
