On Saturday, April 4th we welcomed back comedian, raconteur and jet-ski marathoner Kurt Braunohler as our guest auctioneer! All proceeds from our April auction went to fund the Kids Ride and Activities at the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition River Ride happening Sunday, June 28th at the Autry Center in Griffith Park.
The LA County Bicycle Coalition is an amazing organization that helps promote bike culture in Los Angeles, as well as engaging in a wide variety of policy, advocacy, education, and community building work to make the streets of Los Angeles County more bike friendly for all types of cyclists.
This was the third charity auction our friend Kurt Braunohler has hosted for us. If you're not familiar with Kurt, check out his Comedy Central web series Roustabout which follows his epic 7-day charity mission riding a jet ski from Chicago to New Orleans to raise money to send 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to Africa (via Heifer International), and spread as much joy and absurdity as possible along the way.
His debut comedy album How Do I Land? made AV Club, Paste Magazine, Village Voice, and Time Out New York's Best Of lists. His popular podcast The K Ohle airs weekly on the Nerdist Network. And you can find Kurt every Monday night at The Virgil in LA where he co-hosts the live comedy variety show Hot Tub with his comedy partner Kristen Schaal.
