Keith Bergman has been swilling coffee and driving around the country telling stories for six years. Before that, he spent a long time playing drums in rock and roll bands. He hasn't bought any new clothes since then. His comedy veers from smart, sardonic observations to ridiculous personal tales of keeping it together in a world gone weird. He's performed from LA to New York, in A-list comedy clubs and small town dive bars, and when he's not at home being an adequate father and husband, he's on the road seeking the next adventure and the perfect Reuben.

OTHER STUFF YOU MAY OR MAY NOT CARE ABOUT:
- I played in the bands Chicken Dog and The PB Army
- I was the co-creator of "Infernal Combustion," a heavy metal parody webzine mildly popular in the early 2000's
- as a reviewer for Blabbermouth.net I was known for honest appraisals of underground albums, unless you liked a band I slammed, at which point the catch phrase "Keith Bergman Is Our Misfortune!" was coined by disgruntled metalheads
- if you came here for any of the above-listed reasons, I am weirdly flattered, but I must inform you that none of those activities are likely to resume again
