Two of San Francisco's most beloved comedy showcases, The Business and Club Chuckles, are joining forces to co-present a new series of big shows at San Francisco's historic Verdi Club. The kickoff's going to be real doozy: KURT TUB! Kurt Braunohler's record release for his debut album, How Do I Land?, on Kill Rock Stars, the first-ever comedy release from the venerable indie label. Join Kurt and his hand-chosen special guests (including members of The Business) for an unforgettable night of top-shelf comedy.
Special guests for Kurt Tub! will be LAURA KIGHTLINGER, known for her stand-up on Comedy Central and HBO, also as the writer and creator of the IFC series The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman. She's written on, appeared on, and produced tv shows such as Two Broke Girls, Roseanne, Will & Grace, Dennis Miller Live, and Lucky Louie. Also joining Kurt Tub! will be three comedians from San Francisco's hit weekly show The Business—SEAN KEANE, BUCKY SINISTER, and NATO GREEN.
Special musical guests THE WRONG WORDS (Trouble in Mind) play a sunny, ragged-jangle blast of power-pop flower-psych with just the right dose of syrup on top.
Kurt Braunohler was chosen as featured comic in Variety’s annual prestigious “10 Comics To Watch” list. He was also featured in Time Out New York's list of 50 Funniest New Yorkers, named as a "Comic to Watch" by Comedy Central, the New York Comedy Festival and TimeOut NY, as well as “Best Male Stand-Up” by the ECNY and “Best Unscripted Host” by the New York Television Festival.
