Thank God for Jokes.
Award-winning comedian, actor, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia returns to the stage with more painfully awkward stories in his all-new show about jokes, and how they can get you in trouble. Join Mike as he gets arrested in New Jersey, screamed at by a famous director, heckled by Statler and Waldorf, and attacked by zombie rodents.
Ira Glass of public radio's This American Life writes "Birbiglia's stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio." Time Magazine calls Birbiglia "master of the personal, embarrassing tale." The New York Times describes him as a "supremely enjoyable monologist."
Mike Birbiglia is a comedian, writer, actor, and director known for his highly personal approach to comedy. Birbiglia burst onto the scene in 2006 with his critically acclaimed debut, “Two Drink Mike” on Comedy Central Records, and followed that with “My Secret Public Journal Live,” “Sleepwalk With Me Live” and “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.” He toured his most recent show, “Thank God for Jokes,” to more than 100 cities, and filmed it for Netflix, where it will premiere in 2017. Birbiglia can also be seen as Danny Pearson in Orange is the New Black, as well as in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, The Fault in Our Stars, and in his own films, Sleepwalk With Me and Don’t Think Twice.
