Why Is Bert Kreischer Called "The Machine"

Kreischer is known for his unique storytelling skills and one of his most famous stories is about how he earned his nickname.

Kreischer says he was a seventh-year senior at Florida State University and was majoring in Russian. The comedian says he became familiar with the Russian Mafia while studying abroad and was given the nickname “the Machine” because of how much he could drink. The story doesn't stop there though - there was a train robbery.
