Eugene Mirman delivers graduation speech to his high-school alma mater

Eugene Mirman, Lexington High School class of 1992 graduate, returned over the weekend to deliver the commencement speech to Lexington's class of 2009. I heard him rehearse the speech at a comedy show in Brooklyn last week, which was funny since we were in a dark club, and funnier to see how it plays under the bright lights of a gym. With parents. The laughs come in different, awkward places. Mirman also put the transcript up on his site.
