No one understands the complexities of modern life better than Eugene Mirman, claims Eugene Mirman, and anyone seeking guidance from a man who has lived through everything (except the Great Depression, the Spanish-American War, and Jerry Lee Lewis's sex scandal) won't resist this charmingly hysterical guidebook. In The Will to Whatevs, Mirman advises on many of life's difficult challenges, such as: how to become ultra-popular in high school (without "putting out" -- whatever that is); discover somewhere between four and two thousand ways to overcome social anxiety (sadly, closer to four); and how to start a band, become an artist, or disappoint your parents by getting cast on a reality TV show!
Eugene Mirman is a New York City based comedian, writer and actor. He has appeared in his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, in a recurring role on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, on Conan O'Brien and Carson Daly, MTV, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the Devil and in the new Adult Swim live action series Delocated. He's released two comedy albums: The Absurd Nightclub Comedy of Eugene Mirman (voted Best of 2004 by Time Out and The Onion) and En Garde, Society! Mirman tours the US regularly with countless comedians and has also appeared with bands such as Yo La Tengo, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Cake, and Tegan and Sara.
