Event Description

“Mike Birbiglia has emerged as one of America’s most gifted comedians..." -- Tom Geier, The Wrap
"If Mike Birbiglia were a piece of furniture, he would surely be a well-worn, deeply stained, slightly squishy couch.... That may not sound like a flattering comparison. But Mr. Birbiglia has great respect and affection for this kind of sofa, and so should you." - Ben Brantley, New York Times

MIKE BIRBIGLIA is a comedian, storyteller, director and actor who has performed in front of audiences worldwide, from the Sydney Opera House to Broadway.
