If Eugene Mirman is good at one thing, it’s having the ability to find comedy in the mundane. It’s one of the most endearing things we like about his comedy and one of the reasons we’re excited to hear his latest stand-up comedy special will be available in a form where we can consume it more than the one time it aired on television.
On February 5th, An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory will make its way to retail shelves in convenient CD/DVD form thanks to the folks at Comedy Central. The DVD includes the pilot for Mirman’s pilot, Eugene! highlight reel. The special also includes Mirman’s experiments with a Theramin and the pot shots he fires at cable companies.
You may recognize Mirman’s voice weekly as he provides the voice to Gene on the TV show Bob’s Burgers, though we missed him here.
