Some more bio information, if you must know:
At the age of four, Eugene escaped the clutches of Russian communism when his family immigrated to the birthplace of America: Lexington, MA. He attended Hampshire College and designed his own major of Comedy — doing a one-hour standup act as his thesis, for which he was made fun of, don’t worry — even though actually, it was quite practical.
He’s appeared on lots TV shows, including, Archer, @Midnight, Inside Amy Schumer, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Russell Howard’s Good News, Late Night with Seth Myers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Bunk and more.
Eugene 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 was also named by Rolling Stone as “Hot Twitterer” and keeps his 377k+ followers entertained daily.
Along with Julie Smith Clem, Eugene co-founded Pretty Good Friends, which began as a weekly comedy show in Brooklyn, but grew into tours, large outdoor shows, and TV and radio projects. Out of these shows, Eugene and Julie also created (originally as a joke) the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, which is now a yearly institution in Brooklyn and beyond.
A TV star in her native Ireland, Maeve Higgins has performed all over the world, including in Edinburgh, Melbourne and, most recently, Erbil. Now based in New York, she’s made a name for herself there too. In a good way! She co-hosts Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk on National Geographic and has appeared in Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer. Maeve hosts a live show every month with author Jon Ronson and is a frequent guest at the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. She is writing a book of funny essays for Penguin, due for publication in late 2017. Maeve also makes great radio and is currently hosting a podcast about immigration called ‘Maeve In America’ for First Look Media. Maeve says ‘yikes’ a lot and her favorite food is peanut butter.
