Eugene Mirman just released his new Comedy Central CD/DVD, An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory.
Known as the voice of “Gene Belcher” in the animated comedy Bob’s Burgers, Eugene has always been involved in one form or another of comedy. Eugene has also been recognized in other shows such as HBO’s Flight of the Conchords as well as [adult swim]’s Delocated and Home Movies.
Eugene 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 ten best comedians of the last decade by Paste Magazine.
He is also named by Rolling Stone as a “Hot Twitterer” because of the 238k followers he amuses daily. Eugene created the funny self-help book The Will to Whatevs: A Guide to Modern Life and was a pioneer of the weekly comedy variety show “Pretty Good Friends” which sells out most every Sunday at Union Hall in Brooklyn.
Clearly Eugene has been in and around the comedy scene for many years which is even more of a reason why his new album is a cool thing to buy this week.
