The most recent trend in the travel show is to attach a comedy to it and there are so many – some serious, some spoofs, some that are the dynamics of an actual scripted comedy and others because they were one big practical joke! Travel Thursdays have just got bigger as we are now adding a comedic spin on it where we are looking at the comedian versus the travel.

Today we look at a American travel series that stated in 2010 and is part of the Travel Channel – Bert the Conqueror. The show is hosted by comedian Bert Kreischer and first aired June 16th and the most recent season aired in 2016.

The show is based around Bert going to different theme parks around the USA and watches him try various rides such as water rides, rollercoasters and different sports.

In the series, he visits a number of different locations including Lagoon Amusement Park, Las Vegas, Michigan and Hawaii. Some of the episodes even featured special guests including Adam Richman from Man Vs Food and Dolly Parton
