Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival announces 2017 dates ++ Eugene launches new podcast
The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is hosting its 10th Edition from September 15 - 19 at various Brooklyn venues. The only announced event so far is StarTalk Live! with Neil deGrasse Tyson on September 18 at Kings Theatre which Eugene, a frequent co-host, is part of too. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, June 30 at 11 AM with various presales beginning Wednesday (6/28) at 11 AM. Stay tuned for more details on the 2017 lineup and tickets.
Meanwhile, Eugene Mirman just launched his own podcast, titled Hold On with Eugene Mirman:
Often, the very best stories have a moment - or several moments - where the audience desperately wishes that they could ask the storyteller on stage one question: “UM, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??!!” But, of course, that’s not exactly in the cards.
Presented by Audible, each show hosted by Eugene features several different comedians as they sit down and allow him to slice into their personal stories and comedic psyche with the questions on everyone’s mind. No holds barred and never the same show twice.
Three episodes went up with this week's launch: Kumail Nanjiani, Andy Richter, and Weird Al Yankovic. Check those out here, and watch a trailer below.
Eugene will also be at San Diego Comic Con this year, as part of the Bob's Burger's panel which happens July 21 and is with fellow voice cast H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal and Larry Murphy as well as executive producers Loren Bouchard and Jim Dauterive. Bob's Burgers also just released a soundtrack box set via Sub Pop.
Eugene has a few other events on his schedule, including a couple 'Hold On' live tapings. All dates are listed below.
