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 ask the storyteller on stage one question: “UM, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??!!” But, of course, that’s not exactly in the cards. And it’s a bit rude. So, this series from Audible takes a different approach.

Hosted by Eugene Mirman, each live show features several different comedians & special guests as they sit down and allow Eugene 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.
