Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is now the Janelle James Comedy Festival (inaugural lineup)


After 10 years, Eugene Mirman is out of the hosting-his-own comedy festival business, and has passed the reins to Janelle James who will present The Janelle James Comedy Festival at Brooklyn’s The Bell House on December 4-6. Eugene will actually be on hand for this, saying “I am thrilled to be part of the first annual Janelle James Comedy Festival. She’s so funny and it’s a joy to see the joke of a self-titled comedy festival live on and be reborn.” The rest of the inaugural lineup currently includes David Cross, Cristela Alonzo, Catherine Cohen, Nore Davis, Hadiyah Robinson, Petey DeAbreu, Liza Treyger, Matteo Lane, Mia Jackson, Judah Friedlander, Kenice Mobley, Kate Willett, Sam Morrill, and “special guests” still to be announced. Lineups and tickets will be announced next week.

You can also catch Janelle as part of “Jokes for Haiti: A Benefit Show for Nova Hope Haiti” which happens at Littlefield on November 11 with Tanael Joachim, Tim Dillon, and Sam Jay (tickets). You can also watch a clip of Janelle on Wyatt Cenac’s Night Train, below.
