In the mean time, check out this Dig interview ahead of last years festival by David Brusie:
“Standup comedian and Lexington native Eugene Mirman knows exactly why this area is such a breeding ground for comedy. Without hesitation, he says, ‘It’s the combination of being smart and angry, this great combination of tough but very bright. Everyone is sort of the Matt Damon character from Good Will Hunting.’”
