Comedy Central may be adding a new face to its late-night lineup: Kurt Braunohler. The comedian is set to headline the talk show pilot Getting’ Some Strange with Kurt Braunohler, which, according to the network, would cover the day’s weirdest stories, “revealing just how beautifully insane our world actually is.” Braunohler—who frequently appears on @midnight and has popped up this summer on other Comedy Central shows like Drunk History and The Half Hour—recently finished filming a CC: Studios series titled Roustabout with Kurt Braunohler. The web series, which will premiere later this year, features Braunohler executing a stunt that will better the world. The first season will send him on a jet ski tour of the Mississippi River to raise funds to ship 500 goats and 1000 chickens to Africa.

Deadline first reported the news of the pilot.
