Mike Birbiglia “Thank God For Jokes”

Shows at 7:00pm AND 9:30pm.


Mike Birbiglia has taken the country by storm with his fresh, brilliant, and hysterical stand up comedy. In “Thank God for Jokes,” the award-winning comedian, author, and filmmaker returns to the stage with even more painfully awkward stories, in a show about the perils of one-liners and hilarious zingers. Ira Glass of public radio’s This American Life writes, ”Birbiglia’s stories are even funnier live than they are on the radio,” and Time Magazine calls Birbiglia a “master of the personal, embarrassing tale.” The New York Times describes him as a “supremely enjoyable monologist.”
