Hot Tub with Kurt Braunohler
This week's Hot Tub is hosted single-handedly by the famous and attractive Kurt Braunohler.
There is nothing like the challenges and camaraderie of the road to inspire a songwriter who thrives upon the emotional energy and exhilaration only travel can deliver. Some singers are devoted to the pursuit of perpetual motion, and Langhorne Slim releases his wild soul in ways that come out of the discipline of live performance.
Hari Kondabolu is a Brooklyn-based, Queens-raised comic who has been described by Timeout NY as “smart, analytical and rising.” He has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and John Oliver’s New York Standup Show and the 2007 HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. His Comedy Central Presents half-hour television special debuted on the network in February 2011. He is currently a writer for FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, set to make its debut in August 2012. He will also be appearing on the third season of John Oliver’s New York Standup this summer. He made his UK television debut on BBC 3’s Russell Howard’s Good News in April 2011, which preceded a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He then had a regular segment on the first series of BBC3′s “Live at the Electric” starring Russell Kane. He has also appeared on Episode 69 (Live Portland Super Show) of WTF with Marc Maron. When in New York City, he co-hosts the mostly improvised, monthly talk show The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project with his younger brother Ashok (“Dap” from hip hop group Das Racist). He also wrote the cover story for Spin Magazine about Das Racist last November.
Chris Rozzi has been writing and performing comedy in NYC for over ten years. Over the past few years his one-man show, Outre Island, has acquired a confused but loyal following. Currently, Chris can be seen expressing himself wildly as William Shakespeare on DirecTv's "The Fizz".
Hailing from Canada, comedian Pat Burtscher performs regularly at clubs around the country, and has been featured at multiple comedy festivals, including The Edinburgh Fringe, The Toronto Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Josh Howie has been performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK, so far this year Josh has also taken his distinctive brand of humour to Ireland, France, China and Thailand. He has also written and performed two solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre; his hugely successful debut solo Fringe stand up show, entitled Chosen, which played to sell-out audiences and received rave reviews at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival, and returning in August 2010 with Josh Howie: Gran Slam, based on his time living with his grandmother. Another distinctive and highly original show, Gran Slam also went down a storm with audiences and critics alike. Josh has been filmed for the Comedy Central shows Comedy Store, World Stands Up and Comedy Blue and can currently be seen as the presenter of Movie Geek, the Sky Movies show that offers all the latest news in the world of cinema. Often praised for his writing talent, Josh is a regular contributor to The Guardian, a reviewer for Sky Movies Magazine, and writes a weekly column 'Fears of a Clown' for blokely.com.
