This morning, we were lucky to have comedian Bert Kreischer in studio, since he’s in town for a show at Long Road Distillers as part of Gilda's LaughFest. (And seriously, if you're in the Grand Rapids area, you should get tickets to the show tonight or tomorrow.)

During the hour that Bert was in studio we discussed writing a book and forgetting to change the names of friends he mentioned, nearly killing himself when jumping off an aircraft carrier, and stories about fellow comedians Joe Rogan, Bill Burr and the late Patrice O'Neal.

At one point, Bert mentioned boxed wine, so we sent Loser Ben out to pick up a couple of boxes, which Bert and Producer Joe shared for the remainder of the interview.

You can follow Bert on Twitter @BertKreischer, pick up his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child, listen to his podcast at, and keep an eye out for his Showtime special coming later this year.
