About the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival
Founded in 2008, 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 comedy festivals.
The independent and grassroots event is produced by Pretty Good Friends: Eugene Mirman and Julie Smith Clem. It takes place in Brooklyn every September and in Boston/Cambridge every spring.
Performers participate in the festival because of their enthusiasm for this dumb, but charming, annual tradition.
