Eugene Mirman’s routines have a non sequitur vibe upon first blush, but if you change your focus just a smidge, it all blends together harmoniously.

Take Mirman’s performance on Wednesday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. He opens with a bit about an audition scene set in the 1920s — topical because it’s pilot season! — and segues to a long-distance phone call from his hotel. Which makes sense if you imagine he’s in the 1920s. Just go with us on this one. Then please consider hanging his paintings in a Whole Foods near you.
