Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival 2017
Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival 2017
Founded in 2008 by Julie Smith Clem and Eugene Mirman, The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is the world’s first sincere-and-ironic comedy festival that celebrates a close-knit comedy community, while making fun of the trappings of mainstream festival programming.
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.

Go behind the scenes of the parallel universe that is public radio's This American Life. In the style that has won millions of radio fans, Ira Glass talks about how it all comes together each week, mixing stories from the show, live onstage, with taped selections of stories, recreating the sound of the show as the audience watches. "Mr. Glass is a journalist but also a storyteller who filters his interviews and impressions through a distinctive literary imagination, an eccentric intelligence and a sympathetic heart" (The New York Times).
