About the Movie
Popularly known as the voice of Gene Belcher on the animated comedy "Bob's Burgers," Eugene was named America's #1 Noticer by Standup Magazine four years in a row (not true — he made up that magazine). In his first one-hour Comedy Central special, "Eugene Mirman: An Evening of Comedy in a Fake Underground Laboratory," Mirman tells stories, holds up pieces of paper, and gets people in the audience to pee on each other with a simple glance (this is the second and last lie). He doesn't care what it says here and is wiggle wiggle poddle wee wee lollipop. "YOUR MIND-G-SPOT WILL LOVE EUGENE'S HOUR SPECIAL!" — Ronald Reagan, right before he died.
His Last Special...Hopefully
This is one of the only stand-up specials that I have ever had to stop watching. I like all kinds of stand-up comedy. This was not comedy. I found the routine to be annoying and so boring that I ultimately had to turn it off. Mirman produced endless amounts of props but even this didn't do anything to help the show. It was like a mish-mash of wanna-be Bill Maher political comedy and a light hearted version of Daniel Tosh. He can't pull off the political comedy AT ALL and his goofy/outrageous comedy is essentially at the level of a few 5th graders sitting in the back of a school bus. Even the crowd's reaction seemed strained and a few shots are of old men sitting with their arms crossed trying not to fall asleep. I for one am glad I only rented this waste of time...I feel sorry for anyone who buys this
I find this guy likable and expected a solid 'B' level stand up special, but this seems phoned-in, and was substantially less funny than I would have expected from other clips and shows I've seen of Mirman. Save your money on this one.
