Eugene Mirman

Comedian and actor Eugene Mirman immigrated from Moscow with his family at age 4. He grew up in Lexington, MA, attended Hampshire College where he designed his own Comedy major doing a one hour stand-up set as his thesis and has since gone on to a successful career on TV, stage and film.

On TV, Eugene can currently be heard as the voice of Gene Belcher on FOX’s Emmy Award winning "Bob’s Burgers." He has appeared on many other TV shows including "Flight of the Conchords," "Delocated," "Archer," "Broad City," "StarTalk," "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver," "Inside Amy Schumer," "Conan O’Brien," "The Colbert Report," "Late Night with Seth Myers," "@midnight," "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," "Home Movies" and more.

As a stand-up, Eugene started his career in Boston before moving to New York where he was one of the kingpins in the city’s early alt-comedy scene. Eugene has two Comedy Central stand-up specials and his comedy special “Vegan on His Way to the Complain Store” is available on Amazon. He has released five comedy albums, including his epic Sub Pop Records release "I’m Sorry (You’re Welcome)," which made available in multiple formats including a 9-volume digital set, 7 LPs, a chair and a robe. As a touring headliner, Eugene has performed on stages around the world and at festivals including Edinburgh Fringe, Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, SXSW, SF Sketchfest and many more.

Along with Julie Smith Clem, Eugene co-founded the comedy production company Pretty Good Friends which began as a weekly comedy show in Brooklyn and grew into tours, large outdoor shows and TV and radio projects. Out of these shows, Mirman and Clem also created the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival which started as a joke and became an annual institution in Brooklyn for 10 years. The festival also spawned the documentary film "It Started As A Joke" which celebrates Eugene's unique brand of humor and his role in the alternative comedy movement, providing a window into his personal life in the process.

Chronicling the decade-long run of Eugene’s comedy festival, including the farewell show, “It Started As A Joke” documentary features interviews with Michael Ian Black, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Ira Glass, John Hodgman, Kumail Nanjiani, Reggie Watts and Michael Showalter, along with performances by Janeane Garofalo, Jim Gaffigan, Jon Glaser, Mike Birbiglia, Bobcat Goldthwait, Michael Che and more. The film is available on most streaming platforms.
