The Drunk Show
Cast of Archer

Saturday was the biggest day for the 2011 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival which started with just one show at the Bell House on Thursday, and continued with one show each at the Bell House and Union Hall on Friday. Saturday looked like this:

6 PM @ Bell House: The Archer Variety Hour (and Panel)

9 PM @ Bell House: The Talent Show Presents: The Drunk Show

6:30 PM @ Union Hall: An Evening Of Very Likable Comedians

8:30 PM @ Union Hall: The Rick Jenkins Comedy Studio Showcase

The first show at Union Hall featured Ron Funches, Tom Allen, Craig Baldo, Jena Friedman, Damien Lemon and Greg Johnson. The next was with Rick Jenkins, Ken Reid, Rick Canavan, Erin Judge, Matt D, Mehran Khaghani, Myq Kaplan, and Lamont Price.

The first show at the Bell House was moderated by Eugene and had Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates and executive producer Matt Thompson. That was preceded by a talent show involving the Archer cast. Miss Whitney says, "You guys. The Archer Variety Hour at the Bell House earlier tonight was pretty fucking fantastic... enjoy H. Jon Benjamin's performance of "Non-Dueling Banjos." (video below)" The late show was the 'Drunk Show' hosted by Kevin Townley and Elna Baker featuring John Hodgman, Ira Glass, Rachel Maddow, Eugene Mirman, Jodi Lennon, Leo Allen, Dan St. Germain and Ptolemy Slocum.

The 'Drunk Show' kicked off with Rachel Maddow being interviewed by Hodgman while she made several cocktails from the Savoy Cocktail Book. The show had the participants drinking, arm wrestling "wheelchair style", and ended with a karaoke sing along to "Do They Know Its Christmas."

wow, ira glass is trying really hard to mask his homosexuality by copying marc maron's look from head to toe

Great pics.

I think you've got Archer's Adam Reed misidentified as Matt Thompson.

Did anyone else get really uncomfortable an hour into the Drunk Show?

pics like this are a nice reminder that musicians aren't the most insufferable people in the world.

Looks like Aisha Tyler was the token "not ugly as a hairy as crack" person at this event. Too bad she ain't funny either.

So this was a comedy event for frat people then.

My god theres a lot of self importance in this comedy scene. Way more by a long shot of any music scene in the burg.

Aisha Tyler was great on Saturday night. And 6:24, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT??

What happened at the Drunk Show?

Comedians are writing their own ticket these days. No more slugging it out at the Comedy Store until you get a spot on a late Show. You just create a podcast or a Twitter account and build a following. Or if you want the quick road to fame you tell unfunny versions of other people's jokes and you'll be selling out concerts and hosting Comedy Central
