Kurt 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
Festival and Time Out New York, as well as “Best Male Stand-Up” by the ECNY and

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 web series called “Roustabout,” which 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 $6,000.00 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
12 years with comedy writing partner Kristen Schaal. The duo moved the show to LA in
January 2013, where it was hailed “the hottest new comedy show” by Los Angeles
Magazine. Kurt and Kristen continue to host and perform Hot Tub to a packed house
every Monday night.
Kurt has a bunch of podcasts; his relationship podcast, Wedlock, which he hosts with his
wife, Lauren Cook, launched on Audible on February 14th, and his podcast about adult
friendship, Emotional Hangs, which he hosts with Joe DeRosa, came out on Feral Audio.
Kurt’s popular podcast “The K Ohle with Kurt Braunohler” features some not-so-standard

segments featuring Kurt and guests including Paul F. Tompkins, Doug Benson, Bobcat
Goldthwait, and Kumail Nanjiani. Episodes are available on the Nerdist Network.
