6. Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival
Expect plenty of snarky shenanigans during the Brooklyn comic’s eponymous extravaganza, which showcases the talents of alt-comedy stalwarts across two venues. A Kickstarter campaign is funding unusual events to bolster the entertainment, like a petting zoo and an awkward party bus. Among this year’s goofy offerings are “An Evening of Science,” during which hip astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will explain scientific phenomena to Kristen Schaal, John Oliver (unless the Daily Show sends him elsewhere) and Mirman, and a variety hour dedicated to FX spy spoof Archer, featuring songs and dancing from the show’s cast.
When: Sept 15–18
7. Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade
The getups themselves are remarkably elaborate and high-concept. Last year, we saw dogs dressed as Mr. Potato Head, a character from Tron and as Breakfast at Tiffany’s (one of the iconic shop’s boxes provided the bulk of the outfit). Enterprising owners stand to win an iPod Touch if their pooch is selected Best in Show, so start planning Fido’s outfit now.
