As you all know, Kurt Braunohler’s new Comedy Central web-series, Roustabout, follows the comedian’s quest to jet-ski from Chicago to New Orleans for charity. On June 1st, Braunohler set off to jet-ski the Mississippi in hopes to raise $50,000 for Heifer International to send 500 goats and 1000 chickens to families in Africa. The idea was crazy, it was bizarre, it was dumb, it was brilliant, it was so Kurty B.
Before the full Roustabout series hits the web, check out this sneak peak via Yahoo!. Comedian friends like Jon Daly, Kristen Schaal, Kyle Kinane, and Wyatt Cenac all make cameos. Judging by this video, Roustabout looks like it’s everything I’d hope it would be… and then some. But more importantly, Braunohler’s campaign still hasn’t hit their $50,000 goal. With 47% raised, Braunohler’s “Let’s get wet for goats!” Indiegogo campaign has 19 days left to meet their goal. Kurty B jet-skiied the Mississippi, he started a gang; how will you make the world a better place? Help African families in need and donate whatever you can, here.
