Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunhouler
Double Down Hearts
This quirky American duo won the hearts, doubly, of Edinburgh audiences and Schaal built on the success of her own solo show the year before. Schaal has subsequently appeared at The Secret Policeman’s Ball (2008) and is known for her role as Mel on Flight of the Conchords and as a contributor on The Daily Show. Braunholer has, meanwhile, created a kids sketch show for MTV and among his other credits co-hosts a top variety night and has worked with Schaal live, on radio shows and online shows.
