The 2015 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival happened over the weekend with events at The Bell House and Union Hall (and then a EMCF edition of StarTalk Live! on Monday at Beacon Theatre). Among this year’s festivities: Mirman’s ‘Pretty Good Friends’ show featured the work of Elegant Too, the production team behind the songs on Bob’s Burgers. They brought up different performers to sing the songs, including Jon Spencer & Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog, etc) who did “Sex Song” and a couple others, AC Newman and Eleanor Friedberger performed “Fart School for the Gifted” and “Electric Love” and Mirman sang “Gene’s Snake Song.” They brought out everyone at the end to cover Blondie’s “One Way or Another.”

On Sunday, since the Emmys were happening in real life at the same time, the EMCF hosted the Fake Emmys. It should be noted that there were a few past EMCF performers up for real awards, including Amy Schumer, Jon Glaser, Jessi Klein, John Oliver, Josh Gondelman, John Mulaney, Louis CK, not to mention Archer and Bob’s Burgers

Other fun things at this year’s fest: Mirman hired a mariachi band to play the crowd out; there was free ice cream for everyone on Saturday night; and there were curiosities like the “Eye Contact Booth with Eugene” booths where you could “Get Local Real Estate advice” and “Swear at a Local Broker” and outside Bell House was the “Bounce with someone we paid to compliment you in a bouncy castle.” Also: Reggie Watts, John Hodgman, Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields, Jessi Klein, Janeane Garofalo, Ira Glass, Jo Firestone, Scott Adsit, Jon Benjamin and many more.
