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.
David Cross began his professional television career as a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show." It was there that he first met Bob Odenkirk, with whom he would later co-create the award-winning HBO sketch comedy series, "Mr. Show with Bob and Dave." Cross has since starred as Tobias Fünke in "Arrested Development" and has appeared in numerous films including "Men in Black," "Ghost World," 'Scary Movie 2" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Cross also maintains a notable stand-up career and has released two comedy CDs on SubPop Records: the Grammy-nominated "Shut Up You Fucking Baby!" and "It's Not Funny." In addition to his larger roles, Cross has made cameo appearances on "Just Shoot Me," "The Drew Carey Show," "NewsRadio," "Strangers with Candy" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Cross also provided voices for the Xbox game "Halo 2" and appeared on Adult Swim's "Tom Goes to the Mayor" (for which Bob Odenkirk is executive producer).
Liz Miele started doing stand-up at 16 and now at 23 she is a regular at some of the best clubs in New York City including, Carolines, Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, and the Laugh Factory. She has since appeared on Live at Gotham, on Comedy Central. She has also appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Daily Show and the WE Network. At 18, Liz was profiled in the April 2004 issue of The New Yorker. She was a finalist in the 2004 Ladies of Laughter contest, 2008 March Comedy madness contest and winner of 2008 Gilda's Club contest and her stand-up has been featured on AOL, XM radio, and Comedynet.com. She has opened for Jim Gaffigan, Ted Alexandro, Alonzo Bodden, John Heffron, Jim Mendrinos, Louis Ramey and Aries Spears
