Comedy Spotlight Q&A: Kurt Braunohler


Q: Where you born?

In Michigan, but my parents and I moved  to New Jersey shortly thereafter.


Q: When did you know you wanted to be a comedian?

It was a gradual thing. I moved to New York City in 1998, from Baltimore actually, and founded the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.


Q: Do you prefer to perform in front of a bigger or smaller audience?

I think they both have their advantages.  I would say two hundred to hundred and fifty people is my magic number.


Q: Your bio reads that you used to live in Baltimore. What area and how did you like it?

I lived in Charles Village. And it was fucking weird and great. I loved every second of it. I have a lot of fond memories from Charm City.


Q: How do you think comedy has changed in the past decade?

That’s an interesting question. I would say podcasts and YouTube. Those formats are much more comedy savvy. They definitely have changed the game in a big way.


Q: Are you excited about your show this weekend at the Creative Alliance?

Oh yeah! It’s going to be soo fun! My wife will be telling a story at the top of the show. I’m excited to be back in Charm City!


You do know there’s a Wine Festival a few blocks away that’s ending an hour before your show..right? You’ll have some..interesting audience members possibly.

Wouldn’t expect anything else from Baltimore!
