Stand up comedian Eugene Mirman formed his confrontational whimsy in memorable bit roles on cult comedies like Flight of the Conchords and in his admittedly under qualified advice book The Will to Whatevs: A Guide to Modern Life.
Now he's an absurdist rock star. He tours music clubs and releases comedy records on Sub Pop.
His jokes take the logic of observational humor and apply it to fanciful situations. When he tears into the game truth or dare, it's because the dares aren't real enough for him. A real dare, he claims, would be to create a time machine, masturbate into it and send it to Hitler.
8:00pm, April 1, Crocodile Cafe, 2200 2nd Ave, $15.
