Yes, the folks at CC have teamed up with yours truly to get a pair of readers hooked-up with the just-released CD/DVD combo from funnyman EUGENE MIRMAN! Would you like to have AN EVENING OF COMEDY IN A FAKE UNDERGROUND LABORATORY? Trick question - everyone wants that. So who's gonna give it to ya? Maybe DMX, maybe The Rock Father. Details and entry form below...

Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory

mirmancoverEugene Mirman brings his satirical observational style and some visual aids to a new uncensored and extended CD/DVD combo package, “Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory,” out now on COMEDY CENTRAL Records. The CD/DVD combo also includes the “Eugene!” pilot highlight reel bonus feature.

Mirman is a wizard at finding humor in what ordinary people find mundane, and in his first one-hour special, filmed at the historic Fillmore in San Francisco, Mirman treats the audience to a hilarious grownup game of show and tell. Prepared with print-outs, cocktail napkins, and his childhood notebook, he explains a unique way to keep your daughter safe, what happens when a cable company repeatedly screws him over, and how to make ten Saudi Arabian men give you $40 each. Theremin enthusiasts will be excited to know that Mirman stole Jimmy Page’s instrument and uses it in this special.

Mirman currently does the voice of “Gene” on Fox’s newest hit animated series “Bob’s Burgers.” In the streets he’s sometimes recognized as Eugene, the landlord, from “Flight of the Conchords,” or from his role as comedian/mobster Yvgeny Mirminsky on Adult Swim’s “Delocated.” On “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” he’s Dr. Eugene Mirman and on “Home Movies” he was Eugene, the Russian foreign exchange student. He also has been featured on “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents.”





Mirman was named “Best New York City Comedian” by The Village Voice, one of the “50 Funniest” by Time Out New York, and one of the 10 best comedians of the last decade by Paste Magazine. He has released three comedy albums (the last two on Sub Pop Records) and a parody-ish self-help book, The Will to Whatevs. Named by Rolling Stone as a “Hot Twitterer,” Mirman keeps his over 255k followers entertained daily.

Along with Julie Smith and Caroline Creaghead, Mirman produces the annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, now in its fifth year.

Previously released recordings by COMEDY CENTRAL Records include: Jim Gaffigan’s “Mr. Universe,” George Lopez’ “It’s Not Me, It’s You,” Reggie Watts’ “A Live At Central Park,” Hannibal Buress’ “Animal Furnace,” John Mulaney’s “New in Town,” ”Patton Oswalt's "Finest Hour," Lewis Black's "The Prophet," Louis C.K.'s "Hilarious," Bo Burnham's "WORDS, WORDS, WORDS," Mitch Hedberg's "Do You Believe in Gosh?," Dane Cook's platinum-selling "Harmful If Swallowed" and double-platinum "Retaliation," and the Grammy® Award-winning "Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance," among others.
