About Charlie Berens

In 2017, Charlie Berens began hosting his weekly comedic online news show, Manitowoc Minute. Since then, Charlie’s been creating Midwest-focused sketch comedy videos on his social media platforms. He’s also traveled the country with three sold out stand-up comedy tours. 

In 2020, Charlie paired up with Horseshoes & Hand Grenades alum Adam Greuel to release the music comedy album Unthawed. The album, which is a mixture of bluegrass, country and Charlie’s comedy, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and No. 6 on the Bluegrass Comedy Chart. The duo followed that up with Dive Bar Dinner in 2023, which also charted in Billboard.

Charlie’s first book, The Midwest Survival Guide, was released in November of 2021 by William Morrow/Harper Collins and immediately landed on the New York Times Best Sellers list! ABC is currently developing a half-hour comedy based on the book. His Midwest Survival Guide Tour sold over 150,000 tickets!

2023 also saw the release of his first stand-up special, Charlie Berens: Midwest Goodbye.

Charlie just launched his very own brandy! Berens Old Fashioned Brandy is being producing by Dancing Goat Distillery and is in stores now!

Charlie hosts the Cripescast podcast where he interviews musicians, artists, comedians, creators and more to talk about their story and connections to the Midwest. Guests have included Nate Bargatze, Michael Yo, Kim and Penn Holderness, Jeff Foxworthy, and Roy Wood, Jr.

In addition to Cripescast, Charlie co-hosts the podcast Bellied Up with Myles the You Betcha guy.

Those callers are part of the over 9 million followers Charlie has across social media.
