Hello! I'm Vic Berger IV and I am an absurdist comedy video creator and musician from Bethlehem, PA. I repurpose found footage and newsreel, transforming it into something new and (hopefully) funny. This could be a boring talk show segment or a seemingly innocuous clip from a pop culture icon addressing their fans, but once I get my hands on it, it turns into a few heightened minutes of awkwardness within a full-out psychedelic experience. Other times, I use video editing to comment on situations in the news or highlight the ridiculousness of what we all are going through as a society.

Since we live in a time where a Tim & Eric character occupies the White House, the material is overly abundant. The craziness isn't just in politics, though. I seek out the bizarre, the obscure, the "bad” in pop culture and advertising as well as the never-ending parade of conmen, and mold their output into pieces that will hopefully give you a sense that you aren't the only one feeling this way and that maybe things WILL be okay eventually. I hope my videos have a cathartic effect on the viewer.

Since 2015, I made videos for Super Deluxe, until their demise due to the AT&T/Turner merger in October 2018. You may have seen some of my edits of Steve Harvey going through an existential breakdown on Family Feud or of disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker grifting his audience by selling them massive buckets of freeze-dried food to prepare for the looming apocalypse or of late show host Jimmy Fallon slapping his desk over and over in an uncomfortable laughing fit while talking to dry celebs. Throughout the 2016 election, I created condensed, absurdist "short versions" of each Democratic and Republican candidate's announcement speech and all of the debates and have carried on “documenting” the 45th president. We are rapidly approaching the 2020 election season, and I'm hoping to be able to focus my efforts there and help folks laugh through or, at least, survive the insanity.

I also write and record music! Music was my first love and after I became a video editor, my music has sort of been on the back burner. Though, I just released an album of songs from my back catalog on Flannelgraph Records. This has inspired me to create more music, which I hope to make happen in the new year.

After receiving many messages from people asking how they could help support what I do, I decided what I need is time. The longer videos, as well as my shorter-form Instagram/Twitter videos/photoshops, take time to research, edit and make into what you'd expect to see in a Vic Berger video/post. And as it is now, I am a one man operation. Having patrons would allow me to evolve my work so I can take it to new territories! And with your support, the videos can get as weird and crazy as we like. A twenty minute Jim Bakker video or a mini-documentary on my dad could now be a reality that needs no approval from the big bossman at the company.

I’m still ironing out what the membership perks will be. Would love to hear what you would want for your pledge. The Patreon concept is brand new to me, so please send me a message and let me know what would make it worth it for you to become a patron! Thank you for considering supporting what I do. -Vic
