    Kurt Braunohler

    Kurt Braunohler is a comedian, skywriter, and jet-skier who has committed his career (perhaps foolishly) to “inserting absurdity into stranger’s lives to make the world a better place.” His stand up has been described as “refreshing idiocy from an enthusiastic weirdo” by his own mother. He has an album, a half-hour Comedy Central Special and has performed standup sets on CONAN, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Seth Meyers.

    Kurt Braunohler was featured in Variety’s annual prestigious “10 Comics To Watch” list, named in Time Out New York's list of 50 Funniest New Yorkers and Backstage Magazine’s “5 Comics To Watch,” "Comic to Watch" by Comedy Central, the New York Comedy Festiva and Time Out NY, as well as “Best Male Stand-Up” by the ECNY and “Best Unscripted Host” by the New York Television Festival.

    Kurt is currently in development with Comedy Central on his pilot “Better. Dumber. Faster with Kurt Braunohler.”  He can also be heard on the radio on This American Life telling a story which he is currently developing for film.

    Kurt rode a jet ski from Chicago to New Orleans on a seven city water tour/mission to send 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to families in need in Africa. The adventure was filmed for a Comedy Central webseries called “Roustabout” and launched January 2015 on cc.com.

    Kurt’s chart-topping debut album How Do I Land?, recorded live at packed rock clubs, was the first comedy release for venerable indie label Kill Rock Stars and was included in several Best Of 2013 lists The album’s title comes from Kurt’s “Cloud Project” in which he raised $6k on Kickstarter and hired a pilot to write the words “How Do I Land?” across the LA sky. The resulting skywriting images went viral.

    Called "a prolific stand-up comedian" by the Los Angeles Times, Kurt has performed his whip-smart comedy on stages across the world including Outside Lands, SXSW, Moontower, All Tomorrow's Parties, Bonnaroo, Just for Laughs in Montreal and Chicago, SF Sketchfest and IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang! Live. Oh, and he once performed at Radio City Music Hall.

    Kurt co-created and has co-hosted the continuously sold-out variety show “Hot Tub” for 10 years with comedy writing partner Kristen Schaal. The duo moved the show to LA in Jan 2013 where it was hailed “the hottest new comedy show” by Los Angeles Magazine. Kurt and Kristen continue to host and peform Hot Tub to a packed house every Monday night.

    Kurt’s popular podcast “The K Ohle with Kurt Braunohler” features some not-so-standard segments featuring Kurt and guests including Paul F Tompkins, Matt Braunger, Jon Daly, Kumail Nanjiani, Steve Agee and Nick Thorburn (from Islands/Unicorns who also wrote the theme song). Episodes are available on the Nerdist Network.
