As you are undoubtedly aware, our comedy game show Bunk is hosted by Kurt Braunohler, who is the host with the most except when it comes to shoes. He’s like the opposite of a Never Nude when it comes to wearing shoes on the set of the show. When we aren’t all staring at Kurt’s bare feet, we are pointing and laughing at the panel of comedians who are competing in whatever weird and inane challenges that Kurt throws at them in the hopes of winning surreal prizes like the chance to swap lives with a baby. These intrepid contestants are armed with nothing but their wits as they respond to images they’ve never seen before, make up songs on the spot, complete drawing and sculpture challenges and interact with modern dancers, puppies, babies, gospel singers and more, all under Kurt’s watchful and slightly judgmental eye. So we thought we would take some time and introduce you to some of the show’s contestants. Up first: Eugene Mirman
According to Eugene’s website, he is a comedian and hero who lives in Brooklyn, NY. He is a regular on Flight of the Conchords, Adult Swim’s Delocated, had his own special on Comedy Central, and voices Gene in the new animated Fox series Bob’s Burgers. Since he’s done such a good job so far, let’s have him introduce himself and his thoughts on life.
