Comedian Kurt Braunohler Shares Three Absurd Things You Can Do to Improve the World

by James Rickman


To me, Kurt Braunohler will always be the guy who, along with his partner/bestie Kristen Schaal, brought weekly doses of next-level comedy to Gowanus via the variety show Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen. Now that he's rebooted Hot Tub in L.A. and his debut standup album, How Do I Land?, is about to drop -- on the legendary punk label Kill Rock Stars, no less -- I'm worried that Braunohler's moment of mainstream absorption is nigh. Not that he's been hiding in the shadows till now: in addition to hosting comedy game show Bunk! on IFC and podcast The K Ohle on the Nerdist Network, Braunohler has popped up everywhere from This American Life to Adult Swim's Delocated. So before "Braunohler" becomes a household name, check out "Three Things" and share in the man's dream: "to insert stupidity or absurdity into strangers' lives."

How Do I Land? is out August 20 on Kill Rock Stars. Stay tuned for a Q&A with Braunohler next week.
