Check out this article about their experience:

“Toledano has managed to demystify tragedy and embrace the anxieties of living. His work ushers in a collective sigh of ‘Whew! I thought only I thought like that.’  In person, his humor and humility shine through brighter than in his greatest works. He stresses his mundanity and claims that this is what makes his art relatable. He is man brimming with wit, with ability to deflect and normalize his conditions to appeal to an audience and make comfortable those who feel alienated by his success.”
