The man has been featured on various programs and publications including MTV News, Comedy Central, Fox, Funny or Die, CBS, TBS, Variety, and many more.
Back in 2017, Charlie started hosting his own comedy news show, Manitowoc Minute. Since then, his Midwest humor has remained spot-on, with fans hooked on his comedy sketches. Sitting down wearing a camouflage jacket over a shirt, "Let’s get these headlines done real quick once," he said, and that's where it all started. "Seven percent of U.S. adults say chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Oh my gosh. Come on now. You gotta be kidding me here, guy," Berens said in his first Manitowoc Minute video, soon becoming viral after just a few days.
"From that point on, that was my job," he told Milwaukee Magazine, recalling that life-changing point in time.
In November 2021, the man released his first-ever book, The Midwest Survival Guide. "It’s just as much for people who have lived here all their lives as it is for people visiting for the first time, because the Midwest is so big and so diverse that there’s just so much to learn," he told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The book soon became a New York Times Best Seller! Largely inspired by his roots, his wonderful wit and charming personality just gets everyone hooked!
"Really, I just want to keep making content that brings people together," he told Milwaukee Magazine in an interview. "I’m not going to sit here and say comedy can fix the world. But if telling some jokes or putting out a funny video helps people laugh together, then that’s a step in the right direction."
As a man who unites people with the power of laughter, Berens isn't standing on stage just for laughs. His content actually tackles the important stuff about life and society, too. He's always used his platform to raise awareness of social issues and causes. Weaving comedy and unifying social awareness, Berens is definitely a man worth following.
