Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Underway In Boston


Eugene Mirman and this friends are taking over Boston this weekend with his comedy festival. This is the Spring time version of the festival that happens each year in Boston since 2008. The Brooklyn festival takes place in September. The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is a unique combination of stand up, sketches and radio and podcast shows.

You already missed the “Pretty Good Friends” show featuring Mirman along with Jon Glaser, H. Jon Benjamin, Maeve Higgins, Dan Boulger and Todd Barry. But still to come, two broadcasts of NPR’s”You’re the Expert” hosted by Chris Duffy and a guest who is an expert in their field.  Saturday’s show advertises special guests while on Sunday’s show host Chris Duffy will be joined by Eugene Mirman, Elna Baker and Scott Adsit.  Also on Saturday, a taping of “TV Guidance Counselor”. It’s “the new podcast about old TV” hosted by Ken Reid.

Wyatt Cenac’s 39th Surprise Birthday Party Comedy Show goes down Saturday night with Mirman, Seaton Smith, Jessica Williams, Phoebe Robinson, Jon Glaser, John Hodgman, Bill Janovitz & The Needy Sons.  And the weekend wraps on Sunday with a live taping of “Star Talk Live”.
