Tearing The Veil of Maya Lineups (2007-2010)

Sarah Silverman at Union Hall (10/05/08)
Sarah Silverman

From about 2007 to 2009/2010, I was a pretty regular attendee at the Tearing The Veil of Maya comedy show (currently known as Pretty Good Friends) on Sunday nights at Union Hall. Throughout that time period, I also maintained the show’s now defunct MySpace page where I kept track of the weekly lineups. Because MySpace still exists and I thought it would be a kick, I took all of my lineup “blog posts,” cleaned them up, and posted them after the jump. Though there were a lot of special guests over the years, my personal “holy shit!” celebrity moment was probably seeing Sarah Silverman in October 2008. Check out the whole list of bold faced names after the jump!

PS Pretty Good Friends is back from summer hiatus and once happening weekly on Sunday nights at Union Hall.

PPS The always entertaining Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival takes place from September 13-16 at Union Hall and The Bell House.
