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.
Brown has toured Europe opening for the band Cold War Kids, chronicled in the documentary poetry concert film You Belong Everywhere. He has collaborated, toured and performed with comedian David Cross, All Tomorrow’s Parties with The Flaming Lips, Delta Spirit, Richard Swift of The Shins and The Black Keys (poetry and music) and with painter Blaine Fontana.
