Bonnaroo Comedian | Kurt Braunohler
Stage & Time | TBA
Bonnaroo has always been about more than just music, and nothing exemplifies that better than the impressive array of comedians the fest recruits for its Comedy Theatre each summer. The 2015 lineup is no exception, and, for the first time, we’ve decided to spotlight each performer individually as we’ve done for musical acts for the last several years. Catching comedy is tough, since it sometimes requires missing out on musical acts, but, trust us, it’s an incredible experience. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Comedian of the Day…
Born and raised in New Jersey, established in New York, and now residing in Los Angeles, smart and versatile standup Kurt Braunohler is hands down one of our most anticipated performers at Bonnaroo. Bearing the distinction of having previously played ‘Roo, Kurt has also made appearances at SXSW, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, New York Comedy Festival, Just For Laughs, and many more. A regular on television and podcasts, he’s known for his voice work on Bob’s Burgers (and various Adult Swim shows), live appearances on Chelsea Lately, @midnight, Comedy Central Presents, Getting Doug with High, and This American Life, and formerly hosted IFC’s BUNK. Braunohler has been praised by The AV Club, Variety, Time Out, USA Today, and Comedy Central, and released his debut album, How Do I Land? in 2013. With an interesting world view, sharp and well-crafted topical humor, and smooth delivery, he’s one of the most exciting new standups in the scene, and one of the coolest additions to this year’s Comedy Theatre.
