The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival keeps the laughs rolling tonight at two venues. At Union Hall there's two shows: an all-ages afternoon matinee (4PM) titled, "Uh Oh: Dangerous, Inappropriate Comedy For Teenagers" (tix stilll available) that promises "A comedy show for sexually active teens or families that don't feel too weird if adult subject matter is discussed" and then later that night it's "Comedians Two to Five Years Away From Their Own TV Shows" with Emily Heller, Michael Che, Jena Friedman and Matt Mccarthy (sold out). Meanwhile at the Bell House it's "Talent Show presents: Speech & Debate" with Daniel Kitson, Mark Oppenheimer, Todd Barry, Dave Hill, Eugene Mirman, Hari Kondabolu, Brendon Small, Stuckey And Murray, Arian Moayad, Sarah Vowell, Ashlie Atkinson and Meg Griffiths and tickets are still available.

You can stream the first three songs of Green Day's show at Irving Plaza via their Facebook page.

Unless you're into hipster comedy or a 90s "post-rock" flashback, weak night.

I'm 2:57. Hate Animal Collective. Liked panda bear first album, hated him live. Not a fan of Bon Iver. Tolerate Vampire weekend.

Close, but no cigar.

To a clueless NYU freshman and 97% of the population of NYC.

well we're writing on the brooklynvegan comments section, so presumably one could gather some "context clues" and understand that the audience is already limited

Posted by 5:11 | September 15, 2012 5:38 PM

All the NYU freshmen will be at Green Day, y'all. No worries to be had.
