How often do some of the world’s coolest comics get together for a wild comedy romp in one of the world’s coolest places? The answer, since last year’s Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, is at least once a year!
Eugene Mirman is launching his second annual eponymous comedy fest, in which the hilarious and very well connected comic gathers a bushel of his funniest friends for a few nights of alt-comedy mayhem. In the words of the man himself, “Last year myself and a few friends put on a slightly ridiculous comedy festival in Brooklyn. We had fun so we’re doing it again.”
The shows run from Thursday, Sept. 17 to Sunday, Sept. 20 at Bell House and Union Hall, two highly enjoyable Brooklyn bar/venues. This year’s guests include some of the biggest names in comedy, including Michael Showalter, Todd Barry, John Mulaney, Kristen Schaal and Marc Maron. Check out the fest’s website for more info on the shows’ lineups and ticketing. Also, look for Mirman’s upcoming album, God Is A 12 Year Old Boy With Aspergers, which comes out Oct. 6 on Subpop.
