“Bad” Brad Berkwitt has acting in his blood. His late Father, Alvin Berkwitt, studied with Lee Strasberg. After a successful twenty year career in the US Navy, and retiring in 2006, “Bad” Brad went into the Government contracting world, but could not fight the urge to follow in his father’s footsteps and act.
In 2013, Berkwitt became a fulltime actor which led to lots of acting gigs right out the gate to include, several shows on the ID Channel, Veep, House of Cards, TV Commercials and Industrial Videos.
“Bad” Brad is also a former amateur boxer (80 – 83) who fought all over Florida during that time. His nickname “Bad” came from fellow Author and Boxing Ring Announcer, Henry “Dis-com-bob-u-lating” Jones in 2000 and has stuck ever since. In Henry’s words, “I gave him that nickname because he always stands up for what he believes in, and the fighters truly respect him for being so positive in all of his interviews.” This was never more evident than in Berkwitt’s hit boxing book: BOXING INTERVIEWS OF A LIFETIME.
In 2015, “Bad” Brad took his 17 plus years of conducting interviews with some of the biggest names in Boxing and Hollywood, and created The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show which has become a fan favorite in the United States & around the world. Not to stop there, his viewers wanted more so he created the RSR Video Email Bag Show where those viewers could send in boxing questions and “Bad” Brad would answer them in a show format. The show took off quickly and is viewed around the world.
