One of the godfathers of alt-comedy, Eugene Mirman is an obsessive innovator of different forms through which to be funny; laminated signs, letters to councils, lectures on how to advertise shapes and his own ten year super-commitment to a joke, the "Eugene Mirman comedy festival". As well as talking about the drafting process behind his measured absurdism, we learn how he deals with his wife's illness - both in his personal life and on stage.
