Kurt's new Comedy Central webseries "Roustabout" was filmed along his epic 7 day charity mission where he rode 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. Twitter: https://twitter.com/kurtbraunohler
About Amoeba's ongoing Charity Auctions:
Amoeba matches all winning bids to double the money we raise for a diverse range of local and national charities. What started out as a way to raise funds for the post-hurricane Katrina recovery has continued on to become an every-other monthly event & we've raised over $450,000 for charities from Doctors Without Borders to 826LA and the Silverlake Conservatory to Preservation Hall and The Beagle Freedom Project.
