From June 28th to the 30th, some friends and I are doing a Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival in Boston and Cambridge, MA at The Wilbur Theater and The Sinclair. We’ve done our half-sincere-half-ironic festival in Brooklyn for the last 5 years and I’m excited to bring it home (The Sinclair is 3 blocks from where I did standup for the first time right after high school and a few blocks from The Comedy Studio, where I essentially began my comedy career after college).
Along with great acts (Bobcat Goldthwait, Wyatt Cenac, Jon Benjamin, Wesley Stace, Tanya Donelly, Damon and Naomi, Bill Janovitz & Chris Colbourn, Ben Dryer and many more), we often try to do a bunch of free, silly things. This year, aside from covering the various expenses of bringing in and putting up several acts, we’d like to have a baby goat photo-booth, give out red caviar, have a cardboard VIP room open to the audience, bring in special guests and potentially a myriad of other random things, depending on how much extra money we raise. As we did a few years ago, we’re turning to Kickstarter. So, if any of the incentives appeal to you, feel free to give us a little money. If you’re an eccentric thousand-aire, maybe consider being the Official Caviar Sponsor? Thanks. See you in a few weeks.
