Charlie Berens is an Emmy-winning journalist, comedian and creator of the Manitowoc Minute — a minute(ish)-long news show about everything from national news to Wisconsin news to used bubblers for sale on Kenosha’s Craigslist. His Wisconsin roots made him stand out in the broadcasting world, but instead of burying his opes and cripes, he leaned in and made jokes and news his bread, butter and Ranch. Charlie began his career working for MTV News' Choose or Lose. In 2012, Tribune Media tapped Charlie to host the comedic news show Nightcap. In 2013, he won an Emmy for "The Cost of Water" while reporting for KDAF, a television station in Dallas, TX. Charlie is a frequent collaborator on Funny or Die. His comedic mashups including “If Jack Dawson Was Really from Wisconsin” have garnered more than 13 million views. In 2017, Charlie began the viral Midwest comedic news series Manitowoc Minute. Most recently, Charlie’s Midwest-focused sketch comedy videos have garnered hundreds of millions of views. In addition to sketch comedy and the Manitowoc Minute, Charlie also hosts Dark Side Of on Discovery ID.
