Event DescriptionCHARLIE BERENS
Comedian, host, actor and Emmy-winning journalist Charlie Berens is a dynamic talent in the comedy world. Berens is the creator and star of the Manitowoc Minute. In 6 months he transformed the viral video series into an hour-long variety show selling out venues, sometimes within minutes. Charlie’s career extends beyond the Manitowoc Minute. From creating content for Funny or Die, TBS Digital and Fox Sports 1, to hosting shows for Fox, CBS Sports Network and Variety, Berens’ skill set proves invaluable in a rapidly changing media landscape.
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Berens has always had a love for satire. Growing up watching Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert inspired him to study journalism at the University of Wisconsin. As a junior he was hired by MTV to cover the presidential election. That began Berens’ unique blend of journalism and comedy.
In 2014 CBS Sports Network hired Berens to host the sports gameshow You’re So Money. Also in 2014, PMC (Variety, Deadline) made Berens the host of their comedy/entertainment news brand @Hollywood. From red carpets to Sundance to SXSW to Coachella, Berens has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, politicians, actors, and musicians.
Berens is currently on tour with the Manitowoc Minute Live. Additionally he releases a weekly Manitowoc Minute Facebook video often getting between 400,000-1 million views.
