Hold On with Eugene Mirman
Hold On with Eugene Mirman
Often, the very best stories have a moment -- or several moments -- where the audience desperately wishes that they could raise their hand, jump up, and ask the storyteller one question: “UM, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??!!”

But, of course, that’s not exactly in the cards. Everyone knows that stopping a live performance is rude, weird, and just downright obnoxious.

This new series from Audible takes a different approach. Storytelling aficionado and inquisitive host Eugene Mirman (Bob’s Burgers) sits down with special guests and pauses their true, entertaining, and personal stories to get the funny details they might have left out.

H. Jon Benjamin
H. Jon Benjamin
Born in Worcester, MA, H. Jon Benjamin has garnered an extensive list of credits as a writer, producer and actor in some of television's most entertaining series. Along with his role on BOB'S BURGERS, Benjamin is the voice of "Sterling Archer" on "Archer," which garnered him a 2010 Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance. Benjamin also produced and starred in the cable comedy series "Jon Benjamin Has a Van."

Benjamin provided the voice of "Dr. Katz's" lazy son, "Ben," in the animated series "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist" from 1995-1999. In 2006, he and David Cross co-created the animated series "Freak Show." Benjamin also teamed up with Demetri Martin as a writer and co-producer of "Important Things with Demetri Martin."

Other credits include "Home Movies," FAMILY GUY, "Assy McGee," "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" and "The Venture Bros."
David Cross
David Cross
David Cross began his professional television career as a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show." It was there that he first met Bob Odenkirk, with whom he would later co-create the award-winning HBO sketch comedy series, "Mr. Show with Bob and Dave." Cross has since starred as Tobias Fünke in "Arrested Development" and has appeared in numerous films including "Men in Black," "Ghost World," 'Scary Movie 2" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Cross also maintains a notable stand-up career and has released two comedy CDs on SubPop Records: the Grammy-nominated "Shut Up You Fucking Baby!" and "It's Not Funny." In addition to his larger roles, Cross has made cameo appearances on "Just Shoot Me," "The Drew Carey Show," "NewsRadio," "Strangers with Candy" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Cross also provided voices for the Xbox game "Halo 2" and appeared on Adult Swim's "Tom Goes to the Mayor" (for which Bob Odenkirk is executive producer).
Jean Grae
Jean Grae
Jean Grae first performed under the moniker "What? What?" as a member of the indie group Natural Resource, providing classic singles such as "Baseball" and "Bum Deal." Then with her solo efforts: Attack of The Attacking Things, This Week, The Bootleg of the Bootleg and the 9th Wonder produced Jeanius, provided the platform for Jean Grae's ability to fit as many syllables as possible into short time spans. Grae has featured on tracks with Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Wale, Lil B the Based God, Phonte and Joell Ortiz and a long list of others that is impossible to fit into this bio. On a return to demonstrating her own abilities to produce (Jean has produced under the aka's Run Run Shaw and Nasain Nahmeen) as well as direct, Grae released video and song "Kill Screen aka Steve Wiebe" from her upcoming project Gotham Down. Twisting time and space, Jean Grae's much anticipated "Cake or Death" is set to be released second, though it chronologically precedes "Gotham Down" story wise. Her fate was ultimately changed forever with the actualization of Jean's passion for comedy and satire in recent stand up appearances and a self-produced, written and directed sitcom, Life With Jeannie, is in the works. Recently, appearing on the John Hodgman show and Low Times podcast with Daniel Ralston, audiences were treated to her special blend of music and comedy. To sum up, Jean is a superhero. She's better than everyone at doing everything. You should enjoy and support all of the things that she ever does, because she might disintegrate you if you don't.
