1003 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA, 19107
Doors 7:00 PM / Show 8:00 PM
The trio has shared the stage and the screen with Mirman and Schaal as regulars on the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, and Schaal and Hodgman as contributors on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Currently Mirman and Schaal voice the characters “Gene” and “Louise” on Fox’s hit animated series Bob’s Burgers. Hodgman also recently starred in his own Netflix special John Hodgman: Ragnarok.
“The MirmanHodgmanSchaal sandwich shall soon be among the most famous sandwiches in the United States,” says Hodgman. “Much more famous than the Beef on Weck and Croque-Monsieur, but not as famous as the French Dip. GODDAMN YOU FRENCH DIP. STOP HOGGING THE LIMELIGHT.”
Adds Schaal: “Mirman, Hodgman and I have wanted to do this tour for awhile. We are so thrilled that it’s finally happening! Comedy connoisseurs! Come whet your appetites on this delicate, yet robust, and slightly aged sandwich of us! Your city, plus the three of us together will probably only happen once in all our lifetimes.”
Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. Eugene has appeared on television, which is still a relevant medium for another few years. Some examples include: his own half hour special on Comedy Central, appearances on Conan O'Brien, a recurring role on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the
Devil and the Adult Swim live action series Delocated.
