The fantastic stand-up/improviser Kurt Braunohler rides the waves to the calming shores on today’s Sklarbro Country! Kurt tells us about his fascination with creating sketches in the dark with Kristen Schaal, his on the fence bit of still being breastfed at the age of 5, and how he almost chose a life as a surfer over college. Kurt also shares his favorite segment from his game show Bunk, makes up a story during Quick Hits, and we call up Richard Branson as he makes his final preparations for the apocalypse. If you live in San Francisco, it’s not too early to pick up tickets to see Randy and Jason at Cobb’s Comedy Club on January 18-20 and in Portland at Helium Comedy Club on January 24-26.

Word on the street is that Martin Starr of Freaks and Geeks, Party Down, and NTSF:SD:SUV:: is a first time guest on this week’s Comedy Bang Bang! You didn’t hear it from me but Martin joins Scott for a text session with David Caruso, to showcase his remix abilities, and some robot talk. Rumor has it that Scott pays a favor to his great aunt by welcoming another first time guest, Ethel Branscome to share a special announcement! No clues to who the third guest could be except that their name is spelled EXACTLY the same as Neil Campbell and that he drops in to read some Gossip Blind Items! Sources say that you should also warm up your sniffers for a salacious game of Would You Rather? Don’t forget to pick up the Comedy Bang! Bang! LIVE Summer Tour episodes!

I ended up running out of time for color if I wanted something ready to post tonight, so I decided to experiment with making it look kind of old-timey instead. I’m still open to coloring it traditionally, though!
