Which of the following statements about comedian Eugene Mirman is false? 1) He’s toured with Modest Mouse; 2) He hosted the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival in Brooklyn in September; 3) He led a protest against himself in front of the White House, inciting his followers to shout “Destroy Eugene!”; and 4) He plays a landlord named Eugene on Flight of the Conchords. If you said they’re all true, consider yourself a true Mirmaniac. The talented comic has done it all, and you can catch more of his self-deprecating humor and satire tonight when he performs his stand-up as a part of Comix’s January program devoted to the New Wave of comedy.
