Comedian and Lexington's own Eugene Mirman (Bob's Burgers, Flight of the Conchords, Star Talk Radio with Neil DeGrasse Tyson) read at our store several years ago from his advice-ish book The Will to Whatevs. Since then, he created a comedy festival in his own name. He brings the 6th installment of the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival from New York to Boston from June 28-30. One of Booksmith's own, events staffer/pixel pusher Katie McCarthy, JUST HAPPENS to be on one of the shows on Saturday 6/29 at 6pm at the Sinclair in Harvard Square ($15 / 18+). We're not saying you should go to that one, but if she is as good at comedy as she is at making typos in the events calendar copy: daaaaaaang - bring gauze: you're gonna break through skin with all the knee-slapping! Also appearing at that one: Ben Dryer, Lillian DeVane, Guitler Raphael, Ken Reid, Larry Murphy, and the festival's namesake Eugene. Okay, yeah, go to that one, and/or any of the great showcases for some of the best and usually weirdest voices in comedy. Also the cocktails are super good at the Sinclair.
