On a Show Biz Career

Bert was born July 26, 1969, and he has enjoyed success in show business from a very young age. His first prime time appearance on TV came at the age of 3 when he sang on the Flip Wilson variety show. He’s had several successful records. A look at his IMDB page will show you several films he has either starred or appeared in. He’s done a star turn on many TV shows, and he remains a general fixture on TV to this day.

He’s generally known for his comic work with his longtime collaborator and life partner. But we’ll talk more about that in a moment. New York City has been his home since birth, and it’s the city that has nurtured his successful career. He’s been on Broadway as well, and he sees theater as part of the city’s vibrant culture. Since an early age, Bert has been fascinated by the city. He even became somewhat of an expert on pigeons, a pastime that many New Yorkers enjoy. Bert also has an extensive bottlecap collection.

I mentioned Bert’s long-time collaborator and partner earlier. Bert has not discussed much about his personal life, but he and his partner have been roommates for several years. As you can imagine, there have been articles and talk show discussions on his sexuality, but no official statement has been made by either Bert or his management team. That shouldn’t matter, of course. His audience remains large and loyal. They appreciate his ability to perform in various genres.

Bert can sing, obviously. Somewhere along the way, he learned how to tap dance, and he’s quite proficient at it. And even though he’s been in the public eye for over 50 years, Bert shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, he doesn’t seem to have aged much.

Sadly, he has also been the object of some satire in poor taste. Because of his clean cut, wholesome image, websites have sprung up that link Bert to nefarious individuals and heinous crimes from history. You can see those easily online. But his adoring public knows the truth.

Oh, that comedic collaborator and roommate/life partner? You know him well, also. 

In fact, you’ve probably been watching Bert and Ernie your whole life.
