Comedian Bert Kreischer will serve as the special Celebrity Guest of Honor for Hockey Night in LA presented by this Saturday, April 6, when the LA Kings host the Vegas Golden Knights at STAPLES Center at 7:30 pm.

Kreischer is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer and host who performs to sellout crowds across the country. His standup special Secret Time is currently streaming globally on Netflix.  

Described as having a "rare and incredible talent" (Interrobang), Bert has evolved from being named Rolling Stone's 1997 "Number One Partier in the Nation" to one of the top names in comedy.

Between his two previous stand-up specials, The Machine on Showtime (2016) and Comfortably Dubm on Comedy Central (2009), his two podcasts: Bertcast and Open Tabs, his YouTube cooking show: Something's Burning, his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child (2014), Bert has succeeded in finding the elusive blend of "being a cringe comedian with real insight" (Interrobang).  

Lauded as one of the best storytellers of his generation, Bert seamlessly and sincerely shares anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while showing his ability to prove "that there's a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age," (Forbes).

In January 2019, Bert kicked off the BODY SHOTS WORLD TOUR where he will travel around the world to sold out theaters. Tickets can be found at

Hockey Night in LA is the Kings' Saturday home-game program featuring silver-themed broadcasts and activations in and around STAPLES Center, including celebrity guests, debate-themed programming and outdoor fan fests featuring live music acts.

The Kings close out the club's 2018-19 road schedule tonight in Anaheim at 7 pm. In addition to the LA Kings Audio Network, the FOX Sports App and Prime Ticket (Ducks telecast) the game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West Alternate ("Plus") channel. 

The Kings conclude their 2018-19 schedule tomorrow, Saturday, versus the Vegas Golden Knights at STAPLES Center as part of Fan Appreciation Night.
