Bismarck rescues comedian Bert Kreischer after his tour bus gets stuck in a blizzard

BISMARCK TRIBUNE STAFF

Comedian Bert Kreischer didn’t find much humor in a North Dakota blizzard, but he did discover what it means to be “North Dakota nice.”

Kreischer, who was scheduled to perform in Bismarck Thursday, posted a plea to social media Thursday morning after his tour bus got stuck in the snow.

“Hey Bismarck, if you’ve got a snow plow, I know you’re probably using it right now, we could use some help,” Kreischer said. “Or just come on over and bring some Schnapps, it’s pretty (expletive) cold out here.”

Volunteers including George Pehl started showing up near the Dan’s Supermarket on Turnpike to help the comedian. Pehl, who works for Guthmiller and Son Dirt Works, said he was in the area plowing out the state Capitol parking lots when he got a call about the stuck tour bus.

Kreischer posted his appreciation on Instagram as help arrived. “This is what the (expletive) Bismarck country is about,” Kreischer said as at least a dozen fans gathered around.
