The Brooklyn-based comedian Eugene Mirman is the stand-up king of hipsterville. He was a regular on the HBO series Flight of the Concords and now appears on Adult Swim’s Delocated — and you can see him on YouTube inventing slogans to promote Canada.

But don’t cross this guy: when Mirman got fed up with his cable company, he took out full-page ads in several local newspapers to give them a piece of his mind. He reads his vindictive letter to Time Warner Cable before our live audience.
