The comedian and Lexington-native Eugene Mirman is a self-made success. His stand-up career began in Harvard Square the summer after high school, before going on to Hampshire College to major in comedy. He’s now known for roles on the hit shows “Bob’s Burgers” and “Flight of the Conchords,” and for Comedy Central specials like “Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory.”

Mirman now resides in Brooklyn, but he’s returned to Boston this weekend to bring us the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. It’s a three-day event involving two local venues, 20 comedians and maybe even a baby goat…

Huffington Post, “Whatever your interest, no matter how weird or unattainable or far off it seems, it’s not. It’s completely possible and even likely if you just consistently work at it […] You can make your own way. So just because you move to some city and there’s not a job, make that job or find it or get a bunch of friends together and make something and do it.”
