Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival: Mirman Brings The Mirth

For those who can’t get enough of Bob’s Burgers (read: everyone), the show’s own Eugene Mirman (Gene Belcher) will be hosting his 8th Annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival from Sept. 18-21 at Brooklyn’s Bell House and Union Hall. While the lineup is not yet finalized, on the docket for sure will be Mirman himself, as well as other comedians like John Hodgman, Janeane Garofalo, and Aparna Nancherla. Even bigger names usually perform as well: Sarah Silverman, Hannibal Buress, John Oliver, Wyatt Cenac, and even Kristen Schaal (Mirman’s sister on the show, Louise Belcher) have all contributed in past years. More academic fans, however, should stick around until the end of the festival: Mirman’s scheduled to co-host a talk with Neil DeGrasse Tyson that Monday at the Beacon Theatre.
