Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival – a bigger lineup & tickets
by Klaus Kinski
The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival (9/25-9/28 at The Bell House and Union Hall in Park Slope) kicks-off in just over a week and the line-up and ticket info is finally coming to light. As predicted, the roster of participants is siiiiiicccckkkkk. In addition to a ton of local favorites, some of the best comedians from Chicago, LA, San Francisco and beyond are also gracing our fine burrough. I am particularly stoked to see Bobby Bingo, Arj Barker, Tig Notaro, Morgan Murphy, Hannibal Buress and the Sklar Brothers. More special guests are in the works, but for now feast your eyes on the current dates and line-ups (and ticket links) below….

Not sure how much the Union Hall shows will be, but besides the $15 opening night shindig, it looks like those Bell House shows are a measly 10 bucks. Totally worth it for the already announced comedians alone. I am not sure we’ll see a comedy festival of this magnitude in NYC anytime soon so take advantage people!
