Biography

Active: 1990s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

Absurdist standup Eugene Mirman was a leading light of the New York City alternative comedy scene, earning a cult following in indie rock circles for his performances in support of bands including Yo La Tengo, the Shins, and Modest Mouse. Born in the Soviet Union in 1974, Mirman was four years old when his family immigrated to the U.S., settling in Boston. After graduating from Hampshire College, where he developed his own major in comedy, Mirman launched his standup career at small Boston venues like the Green Street Grill before relocating to New York City in 2000. One of the first comedians to embrace the Internet as a new creative platform, he soon attracted national attention for his website, eugenemirman.com, home to the Marvelous Crooning Child (an animated image of a toddler-age Mirman singing classic rock favorites) as well as many of his short films. Multimedia clips also emerged as a critical element of Mirman's stage act, and his 2004 debut album, The Absurd Nightclub Comedy of Eugene Mirman, was released as a CD/DVD package. Like many standups of his generation, Mirman eschewed traditional comedy venues in favor of indie rock clubs, regularly opening for musical acts as well as the Stella troupe. With Bobby Tisdale and Holly Schlesinger, he also produced the weekly alt-comedy variety showcase Invite Them Up, and in the spring of 2006 released his first Sub Pop effort, En Garde, Society! His second release for the label, God Is a Twelve Year Old Boy with Asperger's, followed in 2009. In 2011, he joined the cast of the animated series Bob's Burgers, voicing the character of Gene Belcher. In 2013 he released the aptly titled album An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory, followed in 2015 by I'm Sorry (You're Welcome). ~ Jason Ankeny~ Rovi
