BERT KREISCHER TO PERFORM AT THE DES MOINES CIVIC CENTER IN SEPTEMBERMonday, April 22, 2019
Tickets on sale April 26!
DES MOINES, IA – Des Moines Performing Arts is pleased to announce that stand-up comedian and actor, Bert Kreischer, will take the Des Moines Civic Center stage on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. as part of his Body Shots World Tour that returns in September. Fresh off the acclaim of his NETFLIX special, SECRET TIME, comedian Bert Kreischer is lauded as one of the best storytellers of his generation with the ability to prove “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age” (Forbes). Single tickets to Bert Kreischer will go on sale Friday, April 26, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. and can be purchased at DMPA.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, or by phone at 515-246-2300.
Described as having a “rare and incredible talent” (Interrobang), Bert has evolved from being named Rolling Stone’s 1997 "Number One Partier in the Nation" to one of the top names in comedy. Between his two previous stand-up specials, THE MACHINE on Showtime (2016), which is now streaming on Netflix, and COMFORTABLY DUMB on Comedy Central (2009), selling out venues on tour, his podcast: “Bertcast,” his YouTube show: “Something’s Burning,” and his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child (2014), Bert has succeeded in finding the elusive blend of “being a cringe comedian with real insight” (Interrobang). With the success of the Body Shots World Tour, Kreischer recently broke into the top 100 tours, as reported by Pollstar, and served as the host of the Pollstar Awards earlier this year.
“I just got a full blood panel back & my liver is healthy,” Kreischer said prepared. “I can’t wait for this tour.”
