Eugene Mirman (performing at MASS MoCA on July 3) was invited to deliver the 2009 commencement speech at his alma mater Lexington High School last weekend. In true Eugene fashion, the speech is hilarious, helpful (just like The WIll To Whatevs!) and perfectly absurd! It is the #2 comedy video on youtube (65k hits and counting!), and has everyone saying “Eugene should give graduation speeches at every high school!” and “I wish Eugene would have given the speech at my school!” This is just great especially considering Eugene spent six years in special education.
Eugene recently wrapped his sold out North American tour with fellow Flight of the Conchords stars and his show was just picked up for a second season on Adult Swim!
