GIVEAWAY | Tickets to The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival

Eugene Mirman Comedy FestivalThe Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival kicks off tomorrow night with shows scheduled at Union Hall and the Bell House through Sunday.

TimeOut NY just published a nice article about it which says:

Beyond catching the elusive Kitson, there are a few festival requirements. First, there's the Opening Night party, with a lineup that includes Kristen Schaal, Pete Holmes, Jon Benjamin, Mirman himself, a VIP room made out of cardboard and an entire roasted pig. Next, a welcome reunion of Mirman and Bobby Tisdale’s long-running Invite Them Up promises both John Hodgman’s stoic, erudite persona dishing fabricated facts, and Reggie Watts’ menagerie of characters backed by flurries of virtuosic beat-boxing. Lastly, there’s something called the Comedians of Law & Order—another ridiculous conceit that features a stellar lineup (A.D. Miles, Zak Orth and Jim Gaffigan). As Mirman says, "It's silly and it's a festival."

The promoters were kind enough to offer pairs of passes to the following shows:

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
*Early Show: I'll Be Famous in 5 Years (or a Copywriter / Audience Coordinator)
With Hannibal Buress, Kumail Nanjiani, Brent Sullivan, Patrick Borelli and more.
18+ Time: Doors: 6p, Show: 630p,  Bell House, $10

*Late Show: The Comedians of Law and Order
What is this show? Basically, it's comedians who we like who've been on at least one of the 9 different Law and Orders, including Zak Orth, AD Miles and more very special guests.
21+ Doors: 830p, Show: 9pm, Bell House,  $15

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
*Panel: Why Talented People Create Terrible Shows
Eric Slovin and Leo Allen host a panel of comedians, executives and industry people discussing why so many talented people make such terrible shows.
