Comedian Kurt Braunohler has a penchant for the ridiculous. “I think I was always a fan of the
absurd,” he says. “I always liked the out-of-place or the non-sequitur. I
always think that’s the funniest thing.” However, Braunohler originally
had no desire to be an entertainer; instead, he majored in philosophy
and English in college.
“For years I’d go up on stage with a
definite set list,” says comedian Sean Patton. “I knew exactly what I
was going to say. But lately I’ve been feeling like I want to challenge
myself, because I feel audiences enjoy a set more when the comedian
enjoys the set.”
“It’s just taking a loving and humorous look
at how terribly we tackle such an important topic,” says sex educator
and comedian Lux Alptraum of her show The Wonderful World of Boning: Sex Ed with a Sense of Humor, a new outcropping of the popular Found Footage Festival series.
