HAPPY HOUR AT Keesler AFB, MS

Posted on by Bernie in News | Comments Off


I cannot tell you how amazing it was to hit the stage at Keesler yesterday three times!  I usually do not knock out three performances in one day, but the energy of the Airmen in Training was OUTSTANDING.  I will never forget that first crowd at 0800 who actually stood and applauded as soon as I walked out on stage.  That was a career first and gave me the fuel to put my ALL into all three shows for our Airmen.   Thank you General Dickenson, Christine Burnett from HQ, and Barry and Christine on base, for hosting the program!  After days like yesterday, I truly know why I do, what I do.  I do it for Airmen like you, who I hope will get more out of their early years in life, then I did.  You have the power to be anything you want to be in life.  It starts with healthy decisions and being a good Wingman for your fellow brothers and sisters!

Posted on by Bernie in News | Comments Off

It was great to take the stage here at Altus AFB for the Airmen and Civilians at 0900 hrs this morning and at 1400 hrs this afternoon.  Home of dozens of C17’s and C135’s- I was lucky enough to get an inside tour of the C17.  Thank you to Colonels Thomas and Shaw.  Sheila Solis, Lt Col Maddox, Cheryl Burns and all of your incredible staffs for hosting me and the tour.  I hope you Airmen had some laughs and realized that we CAN incorporate humor with training, and still take a valuable message of proper conduct and Risk- Reduction with us into our daily lives!

I hope all Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines had a safe holiday here and overseas.  To those overseas, I too, was alone this Christmas contemplating hip replacement surgery, so I know what it was like to be away from family.  I appreciate your sacrifice and courage to our Nation.  I am resting for a couple weeks then getting ready to tour with my HAPPY HOUR ‘Comedy with a Message’ Tour across the US and overseas!  Looking forward to meeting many of you up close and personal!   Bernie

Miramar! Marines and Sailors- You men and women were AMAZING!

Posted on by Bernie in News | Comments Off

I had an incredible time at Miramar, and cannot tell you how much you guys meant to me, from the bottom of my heart!    This is my first time here and I want to thank the General, Chaplain and Staff for bringing me to such an incredible Base!   It was such a rush to see the incredible men and women proudly wear the uniform and serve this country.  The boldest of the bold.  It was one of my most special appearances yet, for the Military! I hope you enjoyed the laughs and also took a Personal and Heartfelt Testimony of High- Risk and Excessive Partying to heart.  HAPPY HOUR is my ‘Comedy ‘With a Message’ tour combining my comedy with my personal experiences with high-risk drinking, my 3 DUI arrests, and tales of the six month jail sentence I served. This program is my passion and my life’s work, spoken from the heart, hoping to give back and reach a few that may need inspiration, to overcome the darness of high-risk and frequent drinking.  Let’s all love and respect each other, our brothers and our sisters not just this holiday season, but all year through!  Here is a picture of me live on stage and my incredible brother Sean:
