Hard drinking and fast living American stand up Bert Kreischer is heading to Manchester for the first time with his ‘Body Shots’ world tour. An acolyte of Joe Rogan he is most likely known from his infamous ‘The Machine’ story in which he briefly joined up with the Russian Mafia as a student. A confessional comedian who doesn’t mind baring all on stage, going tops off when performing, this latest show looks set to mine more of this real life Van Wilder (he was the inspiration for the Ryan Reynolds film)’s debaucherous life story. One of the best storytelling comedians on the planet at the moment it’s worth seeing The Machine while he’s operating at the height of his power.
