About the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival
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. The festival takes place in Brooklyn every year and in addition to the comedy on stage, you may also find a bouncy castle with a therapist inside, a roaming CPA dressed like a clown giving tax advice, or a station where you can throw a water balloon at a slam poet.
2017 EMCF BRooklyn Schedule TBA!
