Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Set to Return in September

Now in its fifth year, the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival has grown into one of the most unique comedy festivals in the land. Taking place from Thursday 9/13 through Sunday 9/16, as usual the festival is homed in Brooklyn's Union Hall and Bell House. Peep the full line-up, with ticket links, below. Highlights include a StarTalk Live! with Eugene and Sarah Silverman as the guests and a five year anniversary celebration, which features a VIP herring room and a slam poet you can throw water balloons at.
