Join Eugene Mirman and Daniel Kitson in Pretty Good Friends, a Brooklyn-based comedy show produced and curated by long-time collaborators Mirman, Julie Smith and Caroline Creaghead. The show is an evening of innovative standup comedy and polished chaos that may include short films, music, and the occasional pig roast. Pretty Good Friends was named “New York’s Best Indie Comedy Night” by New York Magazine, who called it “The best mix of format and talent for a comedy show…screwball stand-up, stories, skits, and short films.”
Eugene Mirman is the voice of “Gene” on Fox’s hit animated series Bob’s Burgers, and is a series regular on Flight of the Conchords and Adult Swim’s Delocated. 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.
Kumail is a tireless Los Angeles-based writer, actor, and comedian. He has been seen performing stand-up on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His 2013 comedy special Beta Male was on the "best of 2013" lists for Vulture, Village Voice, and the Onion AV Club, and it was chosen best comedy special of the year by Entertainment Weekly. Kumail is a recurring cast member on shows like Portlandia, AdventureTime, and the webseries Burning Love, among others. He has also appeared in the feature films Hell Baby, Loaded, Bad Milo, Five Year Engagement, and the upcoming Hot Tub Time Marchine 2. He was a regular cast member on TNT's Franklin and Bash for two seasons and is now a regular cast member on the Mike Judge show Silicon Valley on HBO.
