Summary

The Machine does it again with a knockout comedy special that might be his best yet.

We review the Netflix stand-up comedy special Bert Kreischer: Razzle Dazzle.

A little-known fact, Bert Kreischer was named the top partyer by Rolling Stone, and that article led to the creation of National Lampoon’s Van WilderIn 2009, Kreischer made his first comedy special for Showtime, Comfortably Dumb, and now we fast forward to 2023, he debuts his fifth special (third for Netflix), Bert Kreischer: Razzle Dazzle.

Bert Kreischer: Razzle Dazzle Review

In Bert Kreischer: Razzle Dazzle he spills in a riotous set on bodily emissions, being bullied by his kids, and the explosive end to his family’s escape room outing.

He comes to the stage with a long-sleeved shirt, and he quickly rips his shirt like he is Hulk Hogan. Then, he begins with a bit about his a** hair and how he wanted his wife to cut them. He would do it himself upon her refusal until his kids walked in. Well, for an opening bit, I didn’t love it. I get Bert’s filthy humor and typically love it, but this wasn’t his strongest opening.

When he talks about how his family makes fun of him by calling him “Baby Walrus,” I die laughing. I love when comedians tell stories about their families, but what made this one funnier was that his family was making light of him behind his back. Bert knew he had gold here because he proceeded to destroy his wife and kids with a string of jokes that followed. It was pure comedy gold here.

My favorite joke of the entire special was his bit about the snow machine incident at his daughter’s choir performance. I mean it when I tell you Bert had me in tears from laughing so hard. It has to be one of the best bits I’ve heard this year and one of the better jokes involving kids I’ve heard in a long time—an instant classic.

Once he overcomes that rocky start, Bert delivers as he always does, with some hilarious jokes. Between this and Chris Rock: Selective Outrage, it will be the hard press that both specials don’t land at the top of my list at the end of the year. Sure, I get why his raunchy humor can turn people off, but it landed perfectly for me. Also, no political messages on the stage, just funny jokes about funny things, which is precisely how stand-up comedy should be.

Is Bert Kreischer: Razzle Dazzle good?

Yes. Bert Razzle Dazzled in what might be my favorite stand-up specials of his to date. It was so insanely funny that I rewatched it the moment it was over. The way he incorporates his family is downright amazing. So if you love stand-up comedy or Bert Kreischer, you are in for a real treat with this one.
