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.

“My plan was to be a philosophy teacher,” he says. “I liked comedy always, but I didn’t really discover or think of actually doing it as a profession until I started improvising when I was 22 in New York.” Read more about the comedian here.
