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.
