Inaugural Janelle James Comedy Festival lineup will include Eugene Mirman, David Cross and plenty of new faces

The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival may now be The Janelle James Comedy Festival, but Mirman himself will appear and perform as part of the hand-off of the annual comedy celebration in Park Slope and Gowanus, Brooklyn.

The inaugural lineup joining James from Dec. 4-6, 2018, also includes David Cross, Cristela Alonzo, Catherine Cohen, Nore Davis, Hadiyah Robinson, Petey DeAbreu, Liza Treyger, Matteo Lane, Mia Jackson, Judah Friedlander, Kenice Mobley, Kate Willett, Sam Morrill, plus special guests!

The showcases will still feature fun, aptly-described titles such asĀ “Comedians Who Live Nearby” and the can’t-miss “Comedians Who Said ‘Well, Who All Gonna Be There?'”

Tickets will go on sale next week.

All shows will take place at The Bell House.
