Are you into standup comedy, Bob's Burgers, or joy? Because Eugene Mirman—the voice of Gene on Bob's Burgers—is bringing his act to Old Tucson. The tickets are free, you just have to let them know which of Mirman's two April 10 shows you'd like to attend.  

Mirman's bio: 
Eugene Mirman is the voice of "Gene" on FOX's Emmy-Award winning animated series Bob's Burgers. As a child he inspired millions, but I'd rather not say how (fine - he was the doctor who operated on Ronald Reagan after he was shot.) Just a few days ago, several employees at his local Staples recognized him as comedian/mobster Yvgeny Mirminsky from Adult Swim's Delocated. He also played Eugene, the landlord, on Flight of the Conchords, Dr. Eugene Mirman on Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Eugene, the Russian foreign exchange student, on Home Movies. He does not insist on his characters having some version of his real name, but is comfortable with it. Oh yeah, On Archer he voiced Cecil Tunt, whose name isn't rooted in Eugene, but was drawn to look like him. Mr. Mirman has recorded two comedy specials for Comedy Central and released around four albums. At the age of four his family immigrated from Russia and escaped communism (an ideology you foolishly romanticize). He grew up in Lexington, MA and in 1983 was blamed by classmates for shooting down Korean Airlines flight 007 (which he did not do). Eugene was named Best New York City Comedian by the Village Voice and one of the 10 best comedians of the last decade by Paste Magazine. He has released three comedy albums (the last two on Sub Pop records) and an incredibly funny parody-ish self-help book, The Will to Whatevs. Named by Rolling Stone as a "Hot Twitterer," Eugene also keeps his over 350k followers entertained daily.
