Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival
Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival
Eugene Mirman is bringing his Comedy Festival back to Boston for a second year featuring four nights of outstanding comedy May 1-4. Eugene is a comedian and hero who was raised in the Boston area and now lives in Brooklyn where he curates his hugely popular annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. Last summer, Eugene brought his fantastic multi-night festival to Boston for the first time ever and it proved to be such a hit that this Spring he will be back with another line up of fantastic shows and talent.

The Sinclair and Berklee Performance Center will host the 2nd Annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival Boston. Joining Eugene will be fellow MA-raised humorist John Hodgman, “Bob’s Burgers” co-star Kristen Schaal, legendary UK comedian Daniel Kitson, Wyatt Cenac, Nick Thune, Ken Reid and a very special Boston edition of the hit live show and podcast StarTalk Live! with guest host Bill Nye The Science Guy, plus more special guests tba! Shows + ticket links below.

Comedian/actor Eugene Mirman voices "Gene" on Fox's hit animated series Bob's Burgers, now in its fourth season. He’s had roles on Flight of the Conchords and Delocated, and has two Comedy Central Specials. He was named Best New York City Comedian by the Village Voice, one of "50 Funniest" by Time Out New York, and one of the 10 best comedians of the last decade by Paste Magazine. He's released four comedy albums including Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory, available on cd/dvd on Comedy Central Records. He's also the author of an incredibly funny parody-ish self-help book, The Will to Whatevs. Named by Rolling Stone as "Hot Twitterer," Eugene also keeps over 311k followers entertained daily.

Ken Reid
Ken Reid
Called a "pop culture maven" by the Boston Globe, Boston native Ken Reid has been performing for over 10 years in various capacities. In 1995 he formed the seminal Boston Punk Rock group "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" at Boston's infamous "Rat" club. The band developed a fanbase, and played with bands such as The Dropkick Murphys, Suicide Machines, Avail, The Unseen and more.

In 2003 while living in London, Ken Reid decided to try his hand at stand up. After performing around clubs and colleges in the UK he returned to Boston in late 2003 and has been a staple on the comedy scene ever since.

Reid's unique, and very personal story telling style has gained him a loyal fanbase in the area, and in April 2007 his first one man show "Ken Reid's Cusack Attack" was a sold out affair at the Boston Center for the Arts.

He continues to perform all around the New England area at traditional comedy clubs, colleges and in Rock venues opening for bands such as The Ducky Boys and Hallelujah the Hills. He is also the creator of "Lafta Obscura" a unique comedy show at the Paradise Rock Club that ran during 2006.

Ken has performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, hosted at the Lowell Comedy Festival, hosted and presented at the Boston Music Awards in 2006, performed on the Alernative Showcase show with the Walsh Brothers at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival 2006 and was the Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio in September 2006.

In addition Ken is a founding member of Comedy Troupe The Untrainables, who have been hosts of the "Great and Secret Comedy Show" at Improv Boston since March of 2007.

Reid's next full length one man show "Ken Reid's Very Special Episode – Portrait of a Pop Culture Victim" was produced in March of 2008 to a great response. The show is an even more personal, heartbreakingly funny trip through his pop-culture-damaged mind. Using photos, video clips, and his own brand of storytelling, Ken will make his case for how television has damaged his psyche due to years of co-dependent cathode-ray-tube relations. From appearing on UK game shows, to working at a local cable access station, to handling radioactive material with his bare hands and having a humiliating encounter with TV's Adam West, Ken takes the audience on a fascinating, funny journey through the last 20-something years of TV history as well as the first 20-something years of his own bizarre life.
Guitler Raphael
Guitler Raphael
Guitler Raphael is an adept story teller and wordsmith. He has a naturally comfortable demeanor that is engaging and entertaining. He has an ability to make what is happening in the moment sound like a well honed bit, and make craftily written jokes sound off the cuff. Since starting out in the Boston scene he has gone on to travel throughout the North East and beyond.

Larry Murphy
Larry Murphy
You will recognize this voice from the chambers of Assy McGee, Bob's Burgers, and Ugly Americans. You will recognize his face, albeit if you imagine it without that mustache, as Jay from Delocated. He happens to be from Massachusetts. He is not, however, an Irish criminal.
