Biography

Eugene Mirman was a Russian-born comedian and TV actor who rose to national prominence in the early 2010s as the voice of Gene Belcher on the animated sitcom "Bob's Burgers" (Fox, 2011- ) after developing a cult audience with his quirky, cerebral style. Mirman's standup career began in the '90s when he began making the rounds at New York's esteemed comedy clubs. His subtle delivery and absurdist style quickly caught on with audiences, and by the early 2000s Mirman was landing numerous guest spots on TV shows like "Home Movies" (Adult Swim, 1999-2004) and "Third Watch" (NBC, 1999-2005). In the mid-2000s Mirman started doing voiceover work for shows like "Cheap Seats Without Ron Parker" (ESPN Classic, 2004-06) and "Lucy: The Daughter of the Devil" (Adult Swim, 2007), which would prove beneficial later on in his TV career. In 2007 he landed his first recurring role on HBO's "Flight of the Conchords" (2007-09), and followed that up by appearing as a Russian mobster on the Adult Swim series "Delocated" (2009-13). Then in 2011 Mirman returned to voiceover work after being cast as Gene Belcher on the popular animated series "Bob's Burgers." As Gene Belcher, Mirman was able to broaden his quirky style of comedy to fit the tastes of a mainstream TV audience, and by 2014 was already drawing comparisons to Zach Galifianakis.
