There was much laughter to be had at the 2013 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival last weekend at The Bell House and Union Hall. We already posted pictures from the first two nights and here's a set from Saturday (9/28) and Sunday (9/29). Saturday at The Bell House brought "Hot Tub with Kurt And Kristen" back to New York (both Braunohler and Schaal live in LA now) with appearances by Nick Turner, Nick Kroll, Leo Allen, and Bridgett Everett (whose new show is debuting at Joe's Pub soon); and over at Union Hall it was "Comics We Hope Don't Move To LA (Though We Understand There Is Much More Work There)."

Then on Sunday, the EMCF celebrated the Season 4 premiere of Bob's Burgers with cast members  Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal, Jon Benjamin,  Larry Murphy, Hannibal Buress, and Jon Glaser. Stephin Merrit -- who didn't even appear at The Bell House when Future Bible Heroes (a band he actually is in) played -- also came out with Kenny Mellman to sing one of the show's songs, "Electric Love." Over at Union Hall on Sunday it was "Creaghead & Company EMCF Edition: Thoughtfully Included Since It Was Scheduled Here Anyway."

Pics from nights 1 & 2 are here. More pics from nights 3 & 4 of EMCF 2013 below...

This is the most fascinating drag show I've ever seen.

Excellent performance! I would love to see an album of his best in this format. One observation and one annoyance... Stephin kind of looks like Kevin Spacey in this clip. Why didn't the producers remove that big-faced Clay Aiken look-alike who is annoyingly present over Stephin's right shoulder for most of the performance? Nonetheless, I love this... 1:54!
