Hot Tub with Kurt
Kurt Braunohler (MTV, Comedy Central) hosts this magical evening of comedy, music, and other weird shit. Come see the best and the newest comedians in the city every Monday night at Littlefield! Please note that cohost Kristen Schaal will be back at Hot Tub next Monday.
Hannibal Buress is a comedy writer and performer widely known for having an “irresistible” comedic presence that lands squarely between “cerebral and swagger,” (New York Times). Buress, the 2012 winner of Comedy Central’s award for Best Club Comic, has also been lauded by Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, and Variety. As a stand-up comedian, he’s consistently featured throughout the late-night circuit, including the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson. Also a former staff writer for both SNL and 30 Rock, Buress is the co-host of Comedy Central’s The Eric Andre Show, and appears as a regular “expert” on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. In addition, his debut comedy CD, My Name Is Hannibal (2010) and his Comedy Central one-hour special, Animal Furnace (2012), were both lavished with praise, each making multiple Top 10 lists. His newest project, the weekly web series Talking to Strangers with Hannibal Buress, features witty, humor-filled conversations between the award-winning comic and top-notch musicians and entertainers. The premiere episode featuring ?uestlove (The Roots) is set to debut Summer 2013. Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.
Shonali Bhowmik is a co-producer of the hit show Variety Shac at UCB Theater.

Her music may be heard in the Shac short films for which she composes signature instrumental tracks. She does commercial work, acts in independent film projects as well as sketches on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” She recently started her own independent record label called Little Lamb Recordings.
