What began as a joke amongst jokers, has now become an annual comedy tradition in the New York City metro area. It’s the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival; and it’s now in its fourth year. And we’re happy to reveal this year’s lineup. The “fest” will span two venues in Brooklyn — the Bell House and Union Hall — from Sept. 15 – 18 and will host a stellar cast of comics featuring John Oliver, Kristen Schaal, H. Jon Benjamin and more.

As we reported last month, Mirman and co. have decided to fund the festival through a Kickstarter campaign; that means you can be a part of comedy history…if you have some money you want to give away. As of this writing, those crazy comedy kids have raised nearly $10,500 of their $18,000 goal.

The full schedule of events and performers are listed below. Though, we all know new names will be added in the coming weeks. Tickets are available here and here.
