“He’s a wonderfully charming storyteller, and his timing is perfect. His humor is light and funny, and he punctuates his shows with sweet little nuggets that really stay with you.“
Mike’s still on the road for the West End stint of The Old Man & the Pool, but he already announced a new string of North American shows for next year. The tour has 8 dates scheduled so far, with a two-day stop in Seattle, Washington.
Ol’ Birbigs here makes a legitimate case for being the best storyteller in the world of standup. His routines–an intricate web of seemingly unrelated stories–effortlessly pull crowds into trance-like fascination. But stay on your guard! If you don’t, Mike will pull the metaphorical rug off your feet with a spit-takingly hysterical spin you’ll never see coming.
“I think that as a comedian or an artist, you can decide to give yourself to the audience, or you can decide to look really cool and have people admire you. The artists that I tend to enjoy are the ones who give themselves to the audience,” the 45-year-old artist shared in a one-on-one.
Outside standup comedy, Mike Birbiglia explores his craft in many other forms. He has written NYT Bestselling books, directed critically praised movies, and starred in widely loved television shows. His crowning glory, however, is the legendary run of his three standup specials: "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," "Thank God for Jokes," and "The New One."
In terms of awards and accolades, Mike has a Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, a double clinch of Outstanding Solo Performance from the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a Standup Comedian of the Year honor from the Just For Laughs Festival.
The Moore Theatre, an 1800-seat performing arts center, will host Mike’s jaunt in Seattle. As you enter, you’ll witness Byzantine-Italianate interiors that extend to the intimate stage and seating areas, a wonderful contrast to the show’s contemporary approach.
