Stand-up comedian Kurt Braunohler is best-known for his writing partner Kristen Schaal, the wide-eyed comic seen in "Flight of the Conchords," "Bob's Burgers," "30 Rock," and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

But soon he should be as high-profile as Schaal, as Braunohler is moving to Los Angeles from New York to pursue more acting and TV opportunities.

Braunohler, who specializes in absurdity and whimsy, is actually stopping in Utah this weekend on the way to Los Angeles, in his stuffed Honda Civic, he said in a Tribune interview.

The philosophy major turned to comedy after working for eight years as a job he hated (repairing computers), and is looking forward to pitching specials once he reaches Hollywood.

"I have a lot of things to say," he said.
