Pretty Good Friends produces delightful comedic programming for television, podcasts, radio, the internet, live events, and festivals. We create meaningful and funny content, events, and experiences through the scope of intelligent and absurdist humor. We use comedy as a tool to educate, inform, communicate and connect - while still inspiring a spirit of fun and irreverence. Co-founded by long-time collaborators Eugene Mirman and Julie Smith Clem, Pretty Good Friends began in 2006 as a weekly comedy show in the basement of Union Hall in Brooklyn. These days, we’ve expanded to a production company that develops and produces intelligent comedic programming for television, podcasts, radio, video, and live events, shows, and festivals.
