alt text

Back by popular demand, Bert “The Machine” Kreischer announced today he will keep the party going this summer with his third annual Fully Loaded Comedy Festival which will visit 13 of the most iconic ballparks, amphitheaters and arenas across the country, including a stop at the Ocean Center on Sunday, June 16.

The biggest comedy event of the year features a “Fully Loaded” line-up that includes Bert Kreischer, Big Jay Oakerson, Bobby Lee, Chad Daniels, Cipha Sounds, Dan Soder, Kelsey Cook and Kyle Kinan.

Promoted by Outback Presents, presale begins on Ticketmaster at noon Tuesday, March 5, with code “LOADED” and will go on-sale to the public on Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. For more dates and information, visit

The 2023 Fully Loaded Comedy Festival saw record breaking attendance numbers and this year is expected to be even larger.  Kreischer says, “Fully Loaded is the best ticket you can buy in entertainment this summer - Indoors, outdoors, baseball stadiums, arenas, amphitheaters... The Fully Loaded lineups are top to bottom the best talent to have ever graced stand-up stages. An absolute no-brainer for any comedy fan.”

The concept for the Fully Loaded Comedy Festival was conceived during Bert’s 2020 Hot Summer Nights Tour while performing at drive-in venues during the pandemic. He fell in love with the unconventional aspect of outdoor comedy shows, which sparked the idea to create a top tier showcase that had never been done before. Having fond memories of the original Lollapalooza, Bert founded his own comedy version that would encompass everything he loves: comedy, the outdoors, good times, and drinking with friends to give fans an experience they will be talking about for years to come.

Bert Kreischer’s career has evolved from being Rolling Stone Magazine’s "Number One Partier in the Nation," to one of the top grossing stand-up comics in the business and star of a major motion picture, The Machine, from Sony Pictures.  In 2023, Pollstar listed Bert as #2 in the “30 Top Grossing Comedy Tours”, performing to sold-out arenas around the globe. He is currently on his 2024 Tops Off World Tour which will conclude with a 7-show run in his hometown of St. Petersburg, FL where he will tape his 6th comedy special.

According to Forbes, Kreischer has been hailed as, “one of the best storytellers of his generation, seamlessly and sincerely sharing anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while proving that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age.”

In addition to being named, “one of the US’s top stand-ups over the past decade,” by The Guardian, Kreischer is a world-renowned podcaster hosting Bertcast with over 600 episodes, and 2 Bears 1 Cave with Tom Segura, which consistently charts in the top 10 comedy podcasts worldwide. Kreischer also created, hosts, and produces the YouTube cooking show, Something’s Burning, which has earned over 26.2M views.
