Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen
Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen
Hosted by Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal, this weekly variety show features comedy from New York's best comics and sketch groups, new music, and the occasional oddity.
The Gregory Brothers
The Gregory Brothers
The Gregory Brothers’ unique musical stylings and comic rapport was largely formed when Evan, Michael, and Andrew began making zany mix-tapes in their living room in Radford, Virginia as tiny babies. These (sadly lost) seminal works of musical comedy gently gestated for a few years until 2007, when the brothers joined forces with a bright-eyed lass from Texas. This musical collaboration with Evan’s wife, Sarah, was forged in the fiery crucible of an un-air-conditioned van during a summer tour that year. These sweaty bonds shall never be broken. After having experienced the elation of sharing their original country & soul, folk ‘n’ roll tunes with several dozen people on that home-grown, 50 show tour, they began making their wildly viral YouTube series, “Auto-Tune the News” in 2008. Their meager hope was that several dozen more people would bump their rumps to C-Span if it thumped with a bass line and a beat. While they continue to work on making their YouTube jams, The Gregory Brothers now tour the country speaking at colleges, playing at rock and comedy clubs, and are in the process of making a pilot for Comedy Central.
John Roy
John Roy
John Roy began his comedy career in Chicago, where he studied Improv at Second City and the Annoyance Theater. He moved to Los Angeles in 2004. He has appeared on numerous television programs including Conan, The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show, Last Comic Standing, and CBS’ Star Search, where he was the first comedy champion.

John is a regular performer on the most prestigious independent shows in comedy, including Meltdown, Comedy at The Knitting Factory, and Whiplash, as well as the best comedy clubs in North America, such as the Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, and the Comedy Attic. John has performed in the Just For Laughs Festival in Chicago, the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the Limestone Festival in Bloomington, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, Oregon. In 2014, John performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.

Together with James Adomian, John wrote and performed, along with Marc Maron, in the web series “Maron in Space” for Funny or Die and IFC in 2013. He is frequently heard on satellite radio and his AST Records release “Alexander Hamilton” was named one of the Ten Best Comedy Releases of 2013 by the LA Weekly. John’s podcast “Don’t Ever Change” has comedians talk about their high school years and has featured Dan Harmon, Kumail Nanjiani, and Kyle Kinane.
Jeff Maurer
Jeff Maurer
Jeff Maurer is one of the fastest-rising comedians on the East Coast. My - I mean his - quick wit and affable personality have made me a hit with audiences of all ages. Jeff split his childhood between Oregon, Kentucky, Washington state, and Virginia, and his diverse experiences in those places shaped my unique perspective on the world. After college and a brief stint in the Peace Corps, Jeff began performing comedy, and my sharp insights and friendly demeanor quickly earned him a reputation as one of the most promising comics of my generation. I have performed at clubs including the DC Improv, Baltimore Comedy Factory, Arlington Cinema Drafthouse, Wiseacres, State Theatre, and many more. Was any of the previous paragraph written in the first person? If so, then I, an objective biography writer, made a mistake. My apologies. Jeff currently resides in the Washington, DC area with his wife, though this may not have been updated in a while. He is available for parties and events, where my sharp wit and affable demeanor, as well as his quick insights and friendly personality, plus his affable insights, quick personality, sharp friendly, and other variations thereof, are sure to be a hit.
