Bert Kreischer is one of the hottest stand-up comedians in the world right now and has been for some time. Not only does have an “everyman” quality to his performance and delivery but he also oozes charisma. When he’s speaking there’s nobody else I’d rather be listening to at that moment in time. There’s just something about him.

A few years ago Bert told a story during one of his performances that tells the tale of the time he accidentally joined the Russian Mafia. The summer he became known as “The Machine”.

If you haven’t heard it before (over 50 million views on YouTube say you have) here it is in its entirety.

A story that good has Hollywood written all over it, and sure enough, this May, The Machine starring Bert Kreischer and Mark Fucking Hamill will be released.

It looks as insane as the story itself and I cannot wait to watch it!

On the off chance Bert sees this, how about a screening part for my friends at Crier Media?

Long Live The Machine!
