Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Makes Brooklyn Laugh
Get ready to laugh, Brooklynites—the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival has just announced its lineup for the 2014 season. Now in its—count it—seventh year, the comedy festival will take place in Brooklyn, NY, namely at Union Hall and The Bell House, depending on your date and event. There will be the return of Mirman’s Pretty Good Friends show, two live recordings of StarTalk Live! with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye, and a ton of other performers including H. Jon Benjamin, Bridget Everett, Wyatt Cenac, Michael Che, Dave Hill, Jessi Klein, and many more. Other shows include “Gowanus Idol”, hosted by Elna Baker and Kevin Townley, and “A Night of Cutie-Pies”. Tickets for all of the events are on sale now via the festival’s website. For those of you really devoted to comedy, there’s a Eug Express Lane VIP Pass Option, netting you access to all of the events, line-cutting capabilities, and a gift basket put together by Mirman himself.
Born in the former USSR and raised in the United States, Eugene Mirman released his debut The Absurd Nightclub Comedy of Eugene Mirman, a CD/DVD compilation, in 2004. Besides his comedy, he currently voices Gene Belcher on FOX’s Bob’s Burgers.
