Mirman is a wizard at finding humor in what ordinary people find mundane, and in his first one-hour special, filmed at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco, Mirman treats the audience to a hilarious grownup game of show and tell. Prepared with print-outs, cocktail napkins, and his childhood notebook, he explains a unique way to keep your daughter safe, what happens when a cable company repeatedly screws him over, and how to make ten Saudi Arabian men give you $40 each. Theremin enthusiasts will be excited to know that Mirman stole Jimmy Page’s instrument and uses it in this special.
Mirman currently does the voice of “Gene” on Fox’s newest hit animated series “Bob’s Burgers.” In the streets he’s sometimes recognized as Eugene, the landlord, from “Flight of the Conchords,” or from his role as comedian/mobster Yvgeny Mirminsky on Adult Swim’s “Delocated.” On “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” he’s Dr. Eugene Mirman and on “Home Movies” he was Eugene, the Russian foreign exchange student. He also has been featured on “Comedy Central Presents.”
Mirman was named “Best New York City Comedian” by The Village Voice, one of the “50 Funniest” by Time Out New York, and one of the 10 best comedians of the last decade by Paste Magazine. He has released three comedy albums (the last two on Sub Pop Records) and a parody-ish self-help book, The Will to Whatevs. Named by Rolling Stone as a “Hot Twitterer,” Mirman keeps his over 255k followers entertained daily.
Along with Julie Smith and Caroline Creaghead, Mirman produces the annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, now in its fifth year.
“Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory” is executive produced by Mirman, Mike Rothman, Rick Austin, and Olivia Wingate; and directed by Ryan Polito. Jonas Larsen and Toni Magon are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
