Newmark Theatre

Mike Birbiglia

Second show added at 9:45pm due to popular demand!

Award-winning comedian, author, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia returns to the stage with more painfully awkward stories in a show about jokes, and how they can get you in trouble. Join Birbiglia as he visits Cats-a-chusetts, argues with a stranger about her nut allergy, hosts an awards show for angry celebrities, and learns that Fozzie Bear is a tough act to follow.

Ira Glass of public radio's This American Life writes "Birbiglia's stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio."

Over the past 12 years comedian Mike Birbiglia has developed a one-of-a-kind storytelling style in the world of standup comedy. Time Magazine calls him "master of the personal, embarrassing tale." The New York Times describes him as a "supremely enjoyable monologist."

Birbiglia’s recent off-Broadway hit, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show and was named a Critics Pick by The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Time Out New York. Following a successful New York run, Mike brought the show to more than 70 cities worldwide, including the Sydney Opera House, London’s Soho Theatre, and Carnegie Hall. The show was filmed in Seattle and debuted on Netflix; on November 26th it will be released on CD/DVD and on iTunes.

Mike has made more than 40 network television appearances on shows including Letterman, Kimmel, Conan, Craig Ferguson, and Jimmy Fallon. He is a regular contributor to the Peabody Award winning radio show This American Life.  Birbiglia has released four albums, and both The Onion and USA Today named My Secret Public Journal Live one of “The Best Comedy Albums of the Decade.”

In 2012 Mike directed and starred in the feature film adaptation of his one-man show Sleepwalk With Me. The film won an audience award at the Sundance Film Festival, was released in theaters nationwide by IFC Films and was one of the top 3 most critically acclaimed comedies of the year on Rotten Tomatoes, with top critics rating it 87%.

Currently Birbiglia is touring the country with his all-new show and planning his follow-up feature film.
