Earlier this year, Kurt Braunohler, known for such bizarre projects as the comedy series Penelope Princess of Pets with Kristen Schaal, had possibly one of his wackiest ideas ever. After raising $6,000 on Kickstarter, he hired a pilot to write “How do I land?” across the sky over L.A. Though the message quickly disappeared, it went viral online, receiving more than 1 million views. Now those words are the title of his debut comedy album on Kill Rock Stars. At this record-release party, join the funnyman at the Bell House, where joke-traffic controllers Todd Barry, Eugene Mirman, Hannibal Buress, and Nick Turner, along with musical guest Ted Leo, ensure the evening has a smooth landing.
