Eugene Mirman has certainly had a busy year. He headlined the Pitchfork Festivals first-ever comedy stage, returned to Jon Glasers Delocated for a second season, hosted the first comedy show at Celebrate Brooklyn! in Prospect Park, and was featured on an episode of This American Life. Phew! Now hes putting on the third annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, and hes invited all his favorite funny people to join him, such as Emo Phillips, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal, Daniel Kitson, and David Cross. Highlights of the four-day fest, which takes place at Brooklyn venues Union Hall, the Bell House, and the Rock Shop, include Mike Birbiglia Interviews a Bunch of Sort of Authors and Sarah Vowell on Saturday and Wes and Eugenes Cabinet of Wonders, featuring Yo La Tengo, on Sunday.
