*Tears come down from Velma's eyes again, the news headlines circulate too quickly, don't they? She didn't know if Maren and Miranda truly made up or if Miranda was faking it to make Maren feel good.* W-when... w-will it a-all end... w-when will e-everything come t-together and i-intertwine... *sniffles* -askvelmathegoat ((you can skip this if you want))

Kacey: W-will what end!? I d-don’t understand…

Miranda: I think she means my whole fight with Maren… they’re pretty good friends, I think. It is over, I believe Maren’s story, there’s no reason to fight anymore.

Brandy: She’s right! It actually went so much easier than what I thought! I’m just glad we’re all friends again.

Sunny: Yeah, for a while, I thought it would never happen! But you had an awesome plan, so it worked out!

Brandy: Thank you! But yes, Velma, everything’s okay between us now. You don’t have to worry.

Pretty Good Friends Tour
Eugene Mirman and Daniel Kitson

Woman’s Club of Minneapolis
Sunday, May 11 | 8pm doors | All Ages

Stand-up comedy fans looking forward to seeing Eugene Mirman perform Sunday, May 11 at the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis are in for a rare treat. Mirman (Bob’s Burgers, Delocated, Flight of the Conchords) is bringing a co-pilot with him on his Pretty Good Friends tour: the obscurely-known (on this side of the Atlantic, anyway) but much-lauded UK comic Daniel Kitson. Hot off the latest Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival in Boston, Mirman hopes to introduce Kitson to a wider range of US audiences not yet exposed to Kitson and his unique approach to stand-up:

I’m going on a short US tour in May with award-winning bearded British comedian Daniel Kitson. This is Kitson’s first US tour ever (he’s done shows only in NYC previously). If you’re unfamiliar with him, here’s a great article about him. And another about him being the “reluctant hero of British comedy.” He’s won lots of international awards, including the Edinburgh Perrier Comedy Award, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Barry Award, and The Scotsman Fringe First Award (whatever that is, but he won it in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010). A few years ago he was included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s 50 Funniest People Now.

Mirman’s comedy peers echo his praise for Kitson, but also convey the general sense that to miss these shows would mean really missing out on something special:

People over here need to be schooled on the brilliance of Daniel Kitson. http://t.co/LGGAy5Mgz6

Anyone that can track down video of a Daniel Kitson performance which took place more recently than the mid 00’s probably wins the internet, but here’s some of what can currently be found on YouTube:

This is what I wrote about Eugene Mirman to win free tickets to his show with Daniel Kitson

There is so much to love about Eugene Mirman. Born in 1974, in what was then the USSR, Eugene was the only son of Ethel Levitt, daughter of Ethel Merman, whose death was faked to conceal her defection to the Communist cause. His family moved to Massachusetts four years later, after his Commie pinko parents realized that there was more genuinely Communist scheming going on in hippie-laden New England than there was in the Soviet Union. While in college, Eugene changed his last name to Mirman in an attempt to ride the coattails of his famous comedic grandmother, but got the spelling wrong because he was too lazy to look it up. He made his fortune writing elaborate complaint letters to businesses in order to extort free goods and services from them, but he blew it all on publishing those very same letters in the relevant local newspapers. His career in comedy is actually indentured servitude, into which he was forced by the deranged millionaire John Hodgman in return for the complete payment of his numerous debts to the Mauritanian mob. But my very favorite thing about Eugene Mirman is that I once saw him standing in front of my favorite coffee shop, appearing to wait for someone, and we shared a brief instant of looking at each other to figure out if the person we were looking at was actually a familiar face or just a remarkable facsimile.
