OFF-JFL @ ZOOFEST: Kurt Braunohler

Kurt_braunohler

July 16 - 19, 10:30 PM

In this brand new hour of stand up, Kurt finally gives hot air balloon pilots the comeuppance they deserve, and bravely gets to the bottom of what moths ate before sweaters were invented. Unafraid to ask the BIG questions, like why people are allowed to own birds, and what beavers' tails really do, Kurt viciously skewers society with his deft and cunning wit. (But mostly yells about various animals.) Come find out why VICE called him "the closest thing we have to a real-life Willy Wonka.”

Orny is at his best when he is performing live, deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting worked up about things that most people just accept.

Three microphones are spaced out on the stage and Brennan alternates between them; one for traditional stand-up, one for one-liners, and one for short confessional monologues. This is very much a work in progress in July 2015, and JFL is among the first...
