Rumspringa gone awry. It's not Amish people's fault that comedian Kurt Braunohler's 13-year relationship ended, but it might have something to do with the rumspringa he and his girlfriend took to, as Kurt says, have sex with one other person in their life before thinking about marriage. The Amish Guide to Fucking is one part stand-up, one part personal narrative, 10 parts funny.

He looks like the IT guy for the Nazis. Or so he says. Braunohler's self deprecating humor, specifically in regards to his prowess in the bedroom, will leave the audience in fits of laughter. "I am German, but in bed I'm like a Swedish scientist who works at the large hadron collider. I'm going to throw my bits and pieces so fast through your tubes that I will split you in half, bend space and time, and create a black hole. That joke depends on you knowing what a large hadron collider is."

Winning. Braunohler has been sweeping festival awards faster than a flu outbreak on a Celebrity Cruise. He recently took home the Barry Award for Best in Festival at the Melbourne Comedy Festival with his comedy partner, Kristen Schaal. While there's no Piccolo award to be won, in the words of Charlie Sheen, we're confident audiences will find The Amish Guide to Fucking winning.
