Festival Description

The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is an alternative comedy festival that celebrated it inaugural edition in 2008. The festival is intentionally unpolished and inpromptu in its format. The playful spirit of the festival invites the participating stand-up comedians to parody, poke fun at and push the edges on utter foolishness. The festival is organized by Eugene Mirman who brings together national comedians — the Sklar Brothers, actor-directors David Wain and Michael Showalter, Janeane Garofalo, Arj Barker and Chelsea Peretti, and Aziz Ansari to name a few.

Festival Dates March 29 - 31, 2012
