Kurt Braunohler is Jumping on a Jet Ski to Save the World

NEW YORK, NY

From Comedy Central (cc.com)

Kurt Braunholer Jet Skis for Goats Benefitting Heifer International

Kurt Braunohler is out to make the world a better place, one small act of stupidity at a time, in “Roustabout,” produced by Comedy Central’s CC:Studios and premiering on cc.com in July. This first, six-episode installment, “American Jet Ski,” covers Braunohler’s seven city water tour/mission from Chicago to New Orleans to raise money for Heifer International to send 500 goats and 1000 chickens to Africa.

Created by and starring Braunohler, “Roustabout” features the comedian taking on the world in a huge sweeping feat of absurdity, namely, jet skiing down the Mississippi River for charity. Over the course of seven days Braunohler will come ashore at several cities for stand-up sets and other hijinks with friends and guest stars Wyatt Cenac, Jon Daly, Kyle Kinane and Kristen Schaal.

The epic journey begins in Chicago with a stand-up show featuring Braunohler and guest Cenac on May 29 followed by a launch event from Navy Pier on May 30. Confirmed stops include St. Louis, MO (May 31), Kaskaskia, IL (June 1), and New Orleans (June 6). “Roustabout” is directed by Jeff Tomsic and written by Braunohler and Scotty Landes.

In partnership with Heifer, Braunohler aims to raise $50,000 to send goats and chickens to impoverished areas in Africa. All money in excess of $50,000 will go to a TBD charity to help clean up the Mississippi River. Please visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/jet-ski-for-goats for more information and to donate.

Comedian extraordinaire Braunohler is a regular on “Chelsea Lately” and can be seen or heard on “Bob’s Burgers,” “@midnight,” “Delocated,” “Comedy Central Presents” and “This American Life.” He has been hailed “a prolific stand-up comedian” by The Los Angeles Times, featured inVariety‘s annual prestigious “10 Comics To Watch” list, named as Time Out New York‘s “50 Funniest” and a “Comic to Watch” by Comedy Central and the New York Comedy Festival. He has also performed on “Conan.”

Braunohler’s chart-topping debut comedy album How Do I Land?, named for his “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), is now available on Kill Rock Stars (the first comedy signing for the venerable indie music label). He hosts a weekly sold-out comedy variety show “Hot Tub” in Los Angeles with his comedy partner Kristen Schaal. Braunohler’s very popular podcast “The K Ohle” can be heard weekly on the Nerdist Network.

Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Their animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market.
