Comedian Mike Birbiglia brings an entirely new hour of his smart, comedic storytelling to more than 15 cities on his “Painfully True Stories” Tour. The tour kicked off October 12th in celebration of the release of his first book, Sleepwalk With Me And Other Painfully True Stories.
Over the past 10 years, Mike Birbiglia’s name has become synonymous with smart, comedic storytelling. Mike reached new heights in 2009, when his off-Broadway show, Sleepwalk With Me, became a critical and commercial success. The New York Times called it “simply perfect,” and Time Out New York named it “Comedy of the Year.” A favorite on Comedy Central, Mike has three stand-up specials, including his critically acclaimed one-hour special, “What I Should Have Said Was Nothing.” A regular contributor to The Bob & Tom Radio Show and This American Life on Public Radio International, Mike has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The View, and The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2009 The Onion AV Club named Mike’s Comedy Central Records release “My Secret Public Journal Live” one of the “Best Comedy Albums of the Decade.” The Boston Globe has called Birbiglia’s storytelling, “as honest as any Richard Pryor confession, and as engaging and inclusive as an old Bill Cosby record.”
I remember the first time I saw him perform, I was literally laughing out loud! I can not wait to see him November 4th at The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta! Get your tickets HERE!
Sleepwalk With Me And Other Painfully True Stories is available October 12th from Simon & Schuster. For more information on the tour, visit Mikes website!
