Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Boston + Cambridge June 28 – 30th!

For the last several years my friends, Julie Smith and Caroline Creaghead, and I have put on a small, silly, half-sincere/ half-parody comedy festival in Brooklyn. Last year we brought it to Seattle. This year we’re bringing it to Boston and Cambridge. We’re doing four shows (at The Wilbur and Sinclair): Pretty Good Friends (our super-fun former-weekly comedy show), Eugene’s Friend Ben’s Favorite Boston Comics (my friend Ben’s favorite comics!), One of Each (featuring comics of various ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations and religions!), and Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders (a music/ comedy/ literary variety show that I’ve done with Wes for many years in New York and on the road that’s now a live show on NPR). We’ll also probably have also lots of random silly things at the shows as well. More to come as we think of them/ do a small Kickstarter to pay for them (awkward party buses don’t pay for themselves). Here are the details of who is on what show, with more people being announced over the next few weeks, and some people not being announced until they are on stage:
