Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. After escaping the clutches of communism, he grew up in Lexington, MA (where the American Revolution began through no fault of Eugene’s).

People made fun of him for it, because they were majoring in practical things, like playwriting and semiotics.
Since college, Mr. Eugene Mirman has appeared on television, which should remain a relevant medium for another few years yet. Some examples include: his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, recurring roles on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Adult Swim’s Delocated, and appearances on Conan O’Brien, Carson Daly, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the Devil, and a bunch more.

Largehearted Boy wrote, “The Will to Whatevs is one of the funniest things I have read in years.”
For the last decade Eugene has been a cornerstone of the New York alternative comedy scene, producing with various friends some of the most beloved weekly shows in the city—the famed former East Village staple Invite Them Up (of which Comedy Central records released a 3CD/1DVD set), and currently Tearing the Veil of Maya (voted by New York Magazine as the best indie-comedy show in NYC) and the silly, half-ironic Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival.
Eugene has released two albums: Suicide Squeeze Records’ The Absurd Nightclub Comedy of Eugene Mirman (voted best of 2004 by Time Out New York and The Onion) and the 2006…
