Frozen Drinks, Frozen Tush

Eugene Mirman, the edgiest Russian-American comedian since Yakov Smirnoff, relaxes at the Icebar at Copenhagen’s Icehotel during some downtime at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Revelers are issued Antarctic-quality parkas — which really alters the meat-market singles scene — and there are plenty of goofy photo-ops for both the sober and drunk clientele.

Here, Mr. Mirman does his best impression of Austin Powers frozen for eternity — and we do notice a rather subtle nod to the googly-eyes of legendary comedian Marty Feldman.

SMARTER THAN TED WILLIAMS -- Comedian Eugene Mirman sprung for his whole body to be frozen, not just his loveable head.

The big question: Does the Icehotel have ice machines for the rooms or are you supposed to take a chisel to the hallway?

(Eugene Mirman recently hit Number 5 on Amazon.com’s Best Comedy Albums of 2009. Find out how he really feels about Iranian madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad).
