This Comedian Is Going To Make The World A Better Place By Jet Skiing The Mississippi River

May 20, 2014 | Updated May 20, 2014

Kurt Braunohler has an unorthodox plan to do some good in the world: he's going to jet ski the length of the Mississippi River, from Chicago to New Orleans, in order to raise funds "to send 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to African families in need."

Yeah, we know what you're thinking right now (and trust us, we had similar thoughts). However, the plan is actually real and Kurt's voyage will start on May 29. The whole thing will be documented and shown in a web series for Comedy Central titled "Roustabout" that will premiere in July.

Watch the video above from Comedy Central to learn more about the series that will have Braunohler "make the world a better place, one small act of stupidity at a time". If you'd like to contribute to the cause, be sure to visit the Indiegogo campaign here.
